The Playing For Change multimedia music project took shape in 2004, in order to bring together different musicians from around the world. The creators and producers behind this include Mark Johnson and Enzo Buono, along with their Timeless Media Group. The self described goal of the organization is to "inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music". Together, Mark Johnson and Enzo Buono, using a mobile recording studio,have travelled across the globe to places like South Africa, Ireland, the Middle East, New Orleans, Barcelona, India, and Nepal. At each stop, they made the local musicians perform the same song, deciphered in to their own manner. Thus, the first single of the project, Stand by Me, commenced with a Roger Ridley, who was a Santa Monica street performer, and is now deceased. As the team continued its journey of travelling around the world, more musicians became a part of the project and added their versions of the song, which then were mixed together to produce the final version, which scored 15 million hits on the internet (YouTube).
