Playing For Change is an incredible organization that brings musicians together from around the world to benefit charitable causes. They’ve just announced a huge live streaming event for December 15th called Peace Through Music: A Global Event for the Environment that will feature over 200 artists including Black Pumas, Jack Johnson, Slash, The Lumineers, Sara Bareilles, and more. One name that is contributing will stick out: John Paul Jones.

“John will be featured in a new rendition of ‘When The Levee Breaks’ that will premiere during the event,” the Led Zeppelin bassist’s website explains. “This new version features musicians that have had their performances filmed and recorded all over the world.”

You can hear part of the classic Zep tune’s new take in the trailer for the event:

As if JPJ wasn’t enough, several other world-class players will contribute to the event including former No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal and session legend James “Hutch” Hutchinson.

Peace Through Music: A Global Event for the Environment will take place on December 15th. Donations are open now through the event’s website.
