(TruthSeekerDaily)  No matter where you go in your life, at some point you’re going to need someone to… ‘stand by you,’ is the message this man powerfully portrays with his incredible rendition of the popular ballad “Stand by Me.”

In 2005, PlayingForChange.com recorded Roger Ridley in the streets of Santa Monica playing Stand By Me. This original live performance was the starting point of the first ‘Song Around The World’ Playing for Change created by traveling around the world to add musicians to the track.

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” -Victor Hugo
