Thousands of musicians in 37 countries are performing concerts this week in honor of late journalist Daniel Pearl, who was also an accomplished musician. In 2002, Pearl, a Wall Street Journal correspondent, was kidnapped and killed by terrorists in Pakistan.
In his memory, the Pearl family has established Daniel Pearl Music Day. His mother, commentator Ruth Pearl, recalls her son's love of music and shares family recordings of Daniel playing the violin.
