Stand By Me

May 2, 2015

Yesterday the sad news of the death Ben E King.

He died on Thursday.

Ben E King (1938-2015) started his career in the late 1950s with The Drifters, singing hits that included “There Goes My Baby” and “Save The Last Dance For Me”.

After going solo, he hit the US top five with “Stand By Me” in 1961.

“Stand By Me” transformed Playing For Change from a small group of individuals into a global movement for peace and understanding.
