John Lennon’s son Julian sings ‘Imagine’ for ‘the first time ever’ in support of refugees from Ukraine

John Lennon’s son Julian vowed he would never perform his father’s iconic peace anthem “Imagine.” He would only perform it if the world was ending, but the musician decided the world needed to hear his father’s words.

But due to the ongoing war in Ukraine the 59-year-old felt compelled to publicly perform the song as part of the 2022 Global Citizen’s Stand Up for Ukraine fundraiser.

Julian’s rendition was simple, yet just as powerful as his father’s song, which was released in 1971.
