One World, One Kid

This kid's amazing. His name is Skyler Pia and when his friend Erik was sick with brain cancer, he decided music would be the best medicine. So with the help of his parents, who work in the recording industry, Skyler put together a compilation of his favorite world music tracks from earthy Putamayo Kids CDs and collected info on the songs to explain to his friend why these songs were so awesome. The end result: a radio show by a then six year old Skyler and soon after, a CD of portions of the show just released from Putamayo. And if that isn't enough to completely move you, proceeds from the sales of the CD will go to Make-a-Wish Foundation, benefiting other kids battling this disease.

Check it out at Amazon.

Kids are POWERFUL! We sure can learn from them.
