I can NOT stop watching this video!
I stumbled across a website/project called Playing for Change: Peace Though Music. The founder of the project said:
Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.
Every time I watch this video (it runs about 5 minutes or so) I get goose bumps! Seeing musicians from 'round the world collaborating on this one song ("Stand By Me") is inspiring. I do believe music can change the world - one heart at a time! I know you all will agree!

There are several other videos on the website and other background information. Enjoy!
Turns out there a CD/DVD was also just released. Here's the link on Amazon:
