Video cameras set up by the Starbucks LOVE Project filmed singers simultaneously in 156 countries as they each performed their own version of the Beatles’ anthem, All You Need Is Love.
Each group of musicians plays in a different country and all the sounds are blended to make a beautiful video for sharing. You can watch the names of countries go by in the corner as the different singers appear — like these folks (right) in Ukraine.
You can join others on the chorus by uploading your own version to their website at www.starbucksloveproject.com. Or choose a country and browse through their entries.
The purpose of the project, filmed on December 7, the day before the anniversary of Lennon’s death, was to raise awareness for AIDS in Africa, but I’d say that raising excitement about the idea of love is… well… all you need.
