Playing for Change is a not-for-profit that aims to connect the world through the wonders of music. We like that. And we like how many countries and cultures have been traversed to make this incredible jolt of musical inspiration happen. Turns out the world is a pretty incredible place. Who knew!?

Featuring musicians from the US, the Netherlands, New Mexico, France, Russia, South Africa, Italy and more – this video goes a pretty long way to showing just how beautiful the world can be when we all sing in harmony.

And now, time for a semi-relevant quote from the mind of Bono. Yes, Bono: “I wanna run, I want to hide. I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside. I want to reach out and touch the flame. Where the streets have no name.”

Actually, no. That was no good. How about this one: “Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you’ve travelled”Mohamed.

Yes. That’s better.
