Magical Moment 152, "Summertime"

Sing for Hope's 'Play Me, I'm Yours' project is officially over. I watched the movers roll away a brown, upright piano from Stone Street and thought about the 2 weeks it had spent outdoors in the elements with only a plastic tarp for shelter. I thought about the endless hours we spent walking through the 5 boroughs, searching for each of the 60 pianos as we baked in the heat, yet the pianos never got relief from the sun. One thing I know for certain as I tend to my sunburn and wipe the dripping sweat from my forehead, it is summertime! And this was a great way to kick off the season. Enjoy this clip, "Summertime," from one of the Central Park pianos.

hi there! I love your music, especially "You Want Me." so beautiful.
I think Play Me, I'm Yours is one of the most incredible public art projects, and I'm writing up a little piece about it for my blog. I was wondering if I could post some of your clips. No worries, either way! I was trying to email you directly, but I couldn't find a link on here. if you get this & want to email me, I'm at scatterjoyblog@gmail.com. thanks so much!!
