Stand by me.

There's nothing I love more than strangers getting together to do something for absolutely no reason than to bring joy and happiness (flashmob anyone?). That's why I was so smitten when my co-worker sent me this lovely video of Mark Johnson's rendition of "Stand by Me". The other thing I have always appreciated is how music is a universal language. Growing up playing the violin and piano taught me that a young age when I was able to connect with people whose only common denominator was our instruments and the language formed from playing together. I love how this music producer found the inspiration to create this video from a Santa Monica street musician. Great ideas come from the most amazing and random places and we should all take the time to be inspired by the message of this video. Enjoy!
