Ain't No Grave Can Hold My Body Down

An online collective art project and "living portrait of the Man In Black," The Johnny Cash Project has released a broadcast version of a video that combines Cash singing the title song of his final album with 250,000, frame-by-frame drawings submitted by fans. Director Chris Milk says the project is aimed at creating an ever-evolving, crowd-sourced video that, like Cash, celebrates the themes of mortality and resurrection.

"Johnny's spirit truly does live on - not just through his musical catalog, but in the hearts of all the people around the world he has touched so deeply."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
