Happy 4th of July.... A Gift of Music

Another offering for the 4th of July...

This really touched my heart – it is by real people (that is, not professional musicians), from all over the country. Thank you Kate, for sending this one! I love the feeling of Unity in this video.

Give it a look and a listen!

About the Video
Our founder, TV producer and philanthropist Norman Lear, was talking with Academy Award-winning songwriter Keith Carradine one night, and the Born Again American video was, well, born. It took the efforts of Director Mark Johnson of Playing for Change, Producer Brent Miller, and 16 performers and two choruses to bring Keith’s song to life in 14 iconic locations around the USA. The singers and musicians, non-professionals all, were chosen because they are living the lyrics in these troubled times, not just performing them.
