You've heard this song. Have you ever really tried to imagine it?

It's been over 40 years since John Lennon released 'Imagine.' It upset people. It made them think.

You've heard this song. Have you ever really tried to imagine it?

"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.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) approved a measure last month that could pave the way for the Catholic Church to deny President Joe Biden communion.

Biden is a devout Catholic who considered becoming a priest in his youth. He rarely misses mass, holds a rosary while making critical decisions, and often quotes scriptures. When asked about the bishops' decision Biden said it is "a private matter and I don't think that's going to happen."

The bishops hope the new guidance would push "Catholics who are cultural, political, or parochial leaders to witness the faith."
