I see the Power of Music...

Another great TED talk from Abigail Washburn with some powerful quotes:
I see the power of music to connect cultures. I see it when I stand on a stage at a bluegrass festival … and I bust out into a song in Chinese, and everybody's eyes just pop wide open.
I see the power of music to connect hearts...
DO watch all the way through. Thank you TED
