Higher Ground, 2021

GC Myers- Eureka Moment

Eureka Moment— Now at the West End Gallery

I’m so darn glad he let me try it again
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin’
Till I reach my highest ground

Higher Ground, Stevie Wonder

I had something else in mind for this week’s Sunday morning music but I came across this version of Stevie Wonder‘s classic Higher Ground and changed course.

This song always reminds me that the purpose of this life is to constantly attempt to be better, to move to some sort of higher ground. It’s not always easy especially when faced with a mob who is dead set on displaying their ignorance, selfishness, and hatred in the loudest and most visible manner possible.

I don’t think this is a song that this mob would embrace. And they most certainly wouldn’t like this version from Playing For Change, an organization that raises money for social justice programs in underserved communities all over the world. They produce videos of musicians playing together from points around the globe. Many of the musicians in their videos are buskers who often play for donations from their audience on the street, which is the basis for the organization’s name, Playing For Change. This particular video has some brand name musicians along with many who may be new to you.

It’s a great version of a great song with a great message– lift yourself up to higher ground.

And while you’re up there, pull some others up. There’s plenty of room on that higher ground.
