Mark Johnson is a man with a mission. He wants to bring the world together with music and build an organization that will use technology to enable people all over the world to play together, even if they are thousands of miles apart. Part of this vision was introduced to the world on Playing For Change – Songs Around The World: a CD/DVD set that featured the alents of hundreds of musicians from all over the globe. Johnson and his crew filmed and recorded dozens of musicians and spliced them together into videos that seamlessly blended their diverse styles into powerful performances. In 2010, a concert was organised to celebrate the success of the project.
