From living statues to actors to musicians, I am amazed at people that are able to perform, in any way, in any form, and particularly when they are busking. Big Bro gave me a cd called Street Dreams, which is a recording of various street performers, and it is one of my favorite cd's.
The above is from a documentary along similar lines that will be releasing in April 21st: Playing for Change: Peace Through Music. It's a little long at over 5 minutes for those of us with ADD, but it is a beautiful rendition of one of my all time favorite songs, Stand By Me, by street performers and "spontaneous live performances" around the world, so it held my attention.
Here's some information on what this documentary is all about, and how you can contribute.
