Another snowstorm, another Voice Project blessing

A happy coincidence with the latest dose of winter weather — arriving in tandem with the storm today was another strong installment from the Voice Project

I couldn’t resist sharing this cover of Radiohead’s “Everything in its Right Place,”¬†performed by cellist Joshua Roman and DJ Spooky, a composer, multimedia artist and writer also known as Paul D. Miller.

If you know me, you probably know how much I love Radiohead. Hearing today’s news of even harsher weather back where I grew up in the Chicago area, I was harking back to a slightly warmer day there: Aug. 1, 2001, when Radiohead played the inaugural concert at Hutchinson Field in Grant Park.

Imagine the Ink Spots breaking your heart with “If I Didn’t Care” booming over the PA system as 25,000 people are finding their places on the lawn amid 100-degree temperatures, about to experience a unique Radiohead performance, framed by the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan.

So whether or not the snow is heavy in your neighborhood, bet this will uplift you. Visit the Voice Project to find out more about this episode and the difference being made by connecting artists with peaceful change.

The Voice Project employs three steps on behalf of the women of northern Uganda: artists create a cover; the video goes live at the voiceproject.org; and funds raised by donations, sponsorships and advertising go to support programs that help nurture the peace, reconciliation and rebuilding in northern Uganda.
