Mark Johnson has had quite a trip. He and his co-director Jonathan Walls have been to four continents and 13 locations recording an amazing musical collaboration. New Orleans blues singers are paired with South African choirs, Russian chamber groups and many, many others all through the magic of Mark's laptop. Called Playing for Change, the project first caught our attention when it was featured on Bill Moyers program last fall.

Now Mark's project is hitting DVD and CD on April 28th, with even bigger plans coming up through their Playing for Change Foundation. You can talk with Mark and hear how his project is helping others, Tuesday at 4 p.m. (ET) You can also leave you messages for Mark here or call the Here on Earth hotline with your questions, 1-877-GLOBE-07, and we'll play them back on the show.
