Tokyo 2020 – sings ‘Imagine’ – a regular song for Olympic Games

Tokyo 2020 included the John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1971 song “Imagine” in their opening ceremony.

The artists chosen: Angelique Kidjo, John Legend, Alejandro Sanz, and Keith Urban, they sang in a produced, pre-taped rendition, arranged by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer.  It was broadcast during the ceremony.

John Lennon once said: We’re not the first to say ‘Imagine no countries’ or ‘Give peace a chance.  But we’re carrying that torch, like the Olympic torch, passing it hand to hand, to each other, to each country, to each generation”. “And that’s our job.”

Did you watch the opening ceremony?  What did you think?  Did you find it stunning?
