Stand By Me

Today’s “Music Monday” has been contributed by an amazing woman and daily Museworthy reader – my mother! 🙂 Mom’s friend sent this to her and she liked it so much that she then suggested it to me for the blog. And I’m glad she did. Mom loves all things uplifting, optimistic, and joyful, and today we should all get on Mom’s happy bandwagon.

From the award-winning documentary Playing for Change: Peace Through Music, this video tracks the classic Ben E. King song “Stand by Me” as it is performed by various musicians around the globe. It all started when the film’s crew heard a man named Roger Ridley singing the song, with profound heart and soul, on a street in Santa Monica, California. His performance appears first in the video. Enjoy this inspiring musical treat as it travels the world, gladdens your heart and makes you smile. Thanks Mom 🙂

    Thanks honey for using this song for Music Monday. It is more relevant now then when it was first played. This simple message can lift the human spirit especially now when the world is changing and our future is uncertain. Let ‘s all stand together.

      You are always full of hope for the future and always holding on to the belief that things will get better. It’s one of your many endearing qualities. I should also mention that this song is applicable on a personal level, because if there is anyone who stands by people, it’s you 🙂

      Thanks for the wonderful video submission and for your comments!
