I was looking through my WP reader and found this post by Coach:
I can truthfully say that this video “made my day” today.
I was a bit in the dumps but this is a “picker-upper”.
I will repost and found additional information.
Take a look!!
The central point of this song and music video by violinist Lindsey Stirling (the singer is one Alisha Popat) begins with an invocation of a familiar trope: Africa is a hopeless place.
But African love springs eternal.
So much so that it has the ability to save and teach privileged people from the west, who arrive with fancy hopes of ‘saving’ picturesque Africans. Hell, I’m sure you could even save the elephants if you spent long enough prancing around them playing the violin and the elephants somehow managed to resist the temptation to grind you into the dust with their massive feet (note to American celebrities).
And people love this kind of thing.
By late last night, this video had nearly half a million views since it was first posted on Youtube on Monday, May 7.
21,331,980 … when I looked today!!

I never could have done this video on my own. I had so many wonderful people help me too, I want to thank:
My friends at VenTribe.com sent me out to Kenya to film this. They are a fresh new way to shop online with friends, and they made the whole trip possible. They launch soon and will feature a gift collection of African styles featuring a few of the things you would have seen in the video. Check them out at http://www.ventribe.com/ Check out their Facebook page too where they are giving out some awesome Kenyan Kikoys: https://www.facebook.com/VenTribe

My friends at VenTribe.com gave Lindsey and I the opportunity to go to Kenya to film this. The video wouldn’t have been possible without them.
VenTribe brings facebook friends together to chip in together and buy better gifts for each other.
We shot three youtube videos while we were in Kenya, here’s links to each.

~Children of Africa~
~We Found Love (On Lindsey’s channel)~
I filmed all these videos with Lindsey Stirling! She also has a rocking youtube channel with lots of awesome music videos! Make sure to check them out in the link below.
We ALL are ONE!!
