Your Feel Good Moment of Today - Playing for Change

Just found this via a video debut on Mashable of all places. The cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" is a compilation of musicians from around the world doing their thing. It is extremely well edited and a great way to start your morning. Watch this video play count skyrocket.

This was done in support of the 'Playing for Change Foundation" as described by Mashable below:
The Playing For Change Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to bringing music and arts education to underprivileged children around the world, is debuting its cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Change” on Mashable, in honor of the first Playing For Change Day on Sept. 17.

The video blends the vocals of the Netherlands’s Clarence Bekker with percussionists from Mali, Senegal, Brazil, Colombia and Jamaica, as well as electric guitars, bass and a kora, a 21-string West African bridge-harp.
