I disagree with the guests. First, it is a great rendition of a really great song. Second, using technology, a whole bunch of musicians who would never have the opportunity to play together in real life get to contribute to a single piece of art. Third, it is representative mostly of the diaspora of the African continent, but I think more globally, of our need as a species to work together. As Thomas Paine said, “If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately.”

Bravo, Glortman. That's great work and Ben. E. King could be rightfully proud, as should the performers. Anyone knocking it has no soul.
