It’s been 50 years since John Lennon asked the world to imagine.
On September 9th, 1971, Lennon released his “Imagine” album.
It featured the song that shares the same name as the album.
The song “Imagine,” the famous anthem for peace, reached Number Three on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1971.
Since the song’s release, it’s been used the world over as a call to end war and push for global peace and unity. A video of Lennon singing the song was played at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London
