What the World Needs now is Ukulele

Jake Shimabukuro opens his TED presentation with, “Today I’m going to try to convince you that what the world needs now is ukulele.”  He then played an impassioned cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the ukulele.

Maybe the world would be a better place if everyone played the ukulele.

    You know how I love music, Will! This is wonderful. Eric and I both enjoyed it! We almost went to see this musician in California. Here is a tidbit of info: Ukeleles bring me fond memories as my dad has one and “noodles around” -not exactly Queen, but music to my ears nonetheless. Thanks for sharing this!
