156 Countries Sing Together
On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30pm musicians from all around the world came together and shared a song. At that moment musicians from 156 countries played "All You Need is Love" together.
Lend your own voice to http://StarbucksLoveProject.com Watch streaming video from countries around the world and then join in by singing "All You Need is Love" yourself.
