We're proud to present this Song Around The World, "Lean On Me," for The Art of Saving a Life campaign! The support of our Playing For Change global family just goes to show the amazing impact art can have on people everywhere. Enjoy this video and join us in sharing all of the art created in this effort to improve children’s health around the world!
About The Art of Saving a Life: Despite great progress, one in five children today do not have access to the life-saving vaccines they need. The Art of Saving a Life, a project commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a collection of stories about how vaccines continue to change the course of history. It offers an opportunity to hear, see and feel the tremendous impact of immunization, and to energize us in the global effort to protect every child from life-threatening disease. These stories are told by more than 30 world-renowned photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers, and musicians to impress urgency on the global community to reach all children with the life-saving vaccines they need.

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
