Video: "Gimme Shelter" brought to you by "Playing for Change" - awesome

Playing for Change is a creation of Mark Johnson, who travels around the world filming local and street musicians and edits the video into one coherent and fascinating song. In 2008, he released a cover of "Stand by Me" which led to a PBS documentary and CD release and the creation of the Playing for Change foundation, which supports music education.
“There are many songs that can touch deep into the human heart, and sometimes we need songs that sincerely express the urgency of our situation as a planet,” Johnson said. “We have far too many starving children, warring nations and divided people. ‘Gimme Shelter’ is a song with such a purpose and can inspire us without preaching.”
Watch this great version of the classic Rolling Stones song Gimme Shelter:
