“Skin Deep” Featuring Buddy Guy

I love music, and Blues is one of my favorite genres.  Buddy Guy is a known Chicago Blues artist.  Eric Clapton described Buddy Guy as “the best guitar player alive”.   Alive he is!  Born on July 30, 1936, Buddy is still going strong.  When I discovered he partnered with Playing For Change for his anthem “Skin Deep,” I was delighted.

The video includes over 50 musicians from coast to coast, including Chicago Children’s Choir, and Roots Gospel Voices of Mississippi.

“Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.”

 

Hope you enjoy the song.

  1. I’ve been playing the blues a lot lately on my computer at work. It’s the one thing that consistently keeps me awake and my toes tapping. Haven’t heard a lousy tune yet…and still haven’t now!

    I have just returned to listen again to “Skin Deep.” What great talent! What a great message! Love it!

    We are all one while each being unique. Different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, and colors, etc. need to be treasured because they make us greater and America great!

    Harmony adds to our individual melodies.

    • Yahtzee,
      You might remember that I shared this one some years ago. It’s Christian Blues, Glenn Kaiser, who also plays Christian Hard Rock.

        I’ve been listening to gospel today and love this that I happen upon:

    • Indeed, Yahtzee. Playing for Change has found that music brings people together. It’s a universal language.

  6. Buddy Guy is at the top of my list, my favorite song of his is “What Kind of Woman is This” and I’d Rather Go Blind. Thank you for sharing this!
