The ultimate purpose for Playing for Change is to raise the consciousness of the human race. What better song that Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground” to inspire the urgency of our mission. Titi Tsira from South Africa and Clarence Bekker from the Netherlands add lead vocals with soul and conviction. Listen to the electric guitars of Tinariwen: a group of tuareg soldiers who replaced their guns for guitars, as Stevie Wonder said, “I’m going to keep on trying until I reach Higher Ground.”
This song was originally written and performed by Stevie Wonder.
