International music collective does global cover of Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter"

(CBS) - Stop what you're doing and check this one out right now! International music collective "Playing For Change" has put together a beautiful world-wide cover (literally) of the Rolling Stone's epic "Gimme Shelter".

The video was posted on YouTube by "PlayingForChange" and is described as follows:

Today we are proud to release the newest song around the world from our upcoming PFC 2 album CD/DVD release!! "Gimme Shelter" is a track we have wanted to record for years and today we can finally share it with all of you. This song expresses the urgency we all face to unite together as a planet and offers us wisdom with the words, "War, children, it's just a shot away... Love, sister, it's just a kiss away". It really is that simple. We dedicate this song to all the lost, homeless and forgotten people in this world. It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.

I was totally blown away watching this (and felt good doing so because of the cause) - to check out more about the project, you can go to their website HERE.
