Wow- I thought this cover was equal in greatness to the original song by The Band- this time it's collectively performed by Robbie Robertson, Ringo Star and many other amateur musicians from ACROSS the world.
"Playing For Change

We’re excited to share our newest Song Around The World, “The Weight,” featuring musicians performing together across 5 continents. Great songs can travel everywhere bridging what divides us and inspiring us to see how easily we all get along when the music plays. Special thanks to our partner Cambria® for helping to make this possible and to Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr and all the musicians for joining us in celebrating 50 years of this classic song. Take a load off and turn it up!! Dedicated To "The Band": Rick Danko Levon Helm Garth Hudson Richard Manuel Robbie Robertson"

Here's the "Behind the Song" video explaining how this came together:
