Thanks to my old friend Bob Berner for turning me on to Yo Yo Ma's "Silk Road Project." Check out their version of "Empire State of Mind."
Along with Ai Weiwei, Nelson Mandela, and a handful of others, Yo Yo Ma has got to be one of the coolest people alive.
[PS: Imagine being in that room, as powerful as it is just over the internet. That energy is the antidote to all the crap that seems to be getting too many folks down these days. Nice to have it available. Thanks Yo Yo Ma (and Alicia Keyes, et. al.)]
