Playing For Change is a movement that takes street performers from around the world, records them singing the same song, then layers them all into one fantastic rendition.

According to their website:

Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.

Playing For Change was born in 2002 as a shared vision between co-founders (Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke) to hit the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras in search of inspiration and the heartbeat of the people. This musical journey resulted in the award-winning documentary, "A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians".

While their cause is noble, the end results are phenomenal. Their are a series of fantastic covers on their YouTube channel, and when you're done watching this video, check them out. We've also added some more of our favorites below. Enjoy!
