He Starts Singing An Old R&B Classic, But Wait Until You See Who Joins In
This song is already a classic, but the reason for this compilation, produced by Playing For Change, is what makes it a hit.
Described as a movement to inspire and connect the world through music, Playing For Change was created in 2002 when founders Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke began recording local street artists. Mark then had the idea to layer the separate tracks over each other to connect artists from all over the country. The result was an award-winning documentary, "A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians."
After being inspired by hearing the same classics performed all over the world, Johnson put together videos of a "Song Around the World," which is where this awesome rendition of "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" comes from.
