Conceived from his passing, John Lennon’s life and spirit was honored by a gathering of mourning artists and appalled friends. Since, the gathering has become an annual tribute benefiting music communities, sending positive life messages, and honoring the great life we all miss so much.
This year, the Tribute will benefit the Playing For Change Foundation. This foundation’s goal is to “Create positive change through music education for all musicians and their communities.” (playingforchange.org)
If nothing about this event has caught your attention as impressive or inspiring yet, maybe understanding who is performing and attending will change your mind. Jackson Brown, Patti Smith, Cyndi Lauper, Aimee Mann, Keb’ Mo’, Joan Osborne, Martin Sexton, Taj Mahal, and many more will each perform one or two John Lennon songs!
