♫ “Stand By Me” ♫

“Stand By Me” – Andy Madadian, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora & Friends

Producer Don Was and singers Andy Madadian (an Iranian exile) and Jon Bon Jovi recorded this duet of the Ben E. King song “Stand By Me” June 24 as a symbol of worldwide solidarity for the Iranian people, currently protesting a rigged presidential election. The first verse is in Farsi (only natural for Madadian, but a first for Bon Jovi).
