It's been over 40 years since John Lennon released 'Imagine.' It upset people. It made them think.
"Imagine" is a global anthem.
Jimmy Carter reported, "[I]n many countries around the world — my wife and I have visited about 125 countries — you hear John Lennon's song 'Imagine' used almost equally with national anthems."
And now, it's a global project.
"The Convention on the Rights of the Child asked us all to imagine a better world for children — and calls on all of us to make that vision a reality," said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake. "The #IMAGINE project gives people across the globe a chance to join a global movement for children, lending their ideas, their visions and, not least, their voices to advance the rights of every child, everywhere."
UNICEF wants you (yes, you) to record your own cover of "Imagine."
They're trying to create the world's largest sing-along and remind people that the world John Lennon imagined is not impossible.
Here are two of my favorites covers that people have done already.
