Celine Dion honours Lennon by singing his ‘Imagine’December 10th, 2010 - 5:48 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 10 (ANI): Celine Dion has paid a tribute to the late John Lennon during an appearance on an U.S. television show with an emotional rendition of his hit song ‘Imagine’.
Fans all over the world marked the 30th anniversary of the music legend’s death on Wednesday.
Dion, who made an appearance on Larry King Live, revealed the Beatle had a massive influence on her music, reports the Daily Star.
“What a legend. What a man. And it’s so unfortunate what happened. And it’s amazing because 30 years ago… he was killed. And it’s amazing because… I was 12 years old when he was killed. But fortunately, through his amazing music and through my family, my brothers and sisters and my husband, I have learned his music and his words. And so I kind of grew a little later with him,” she said.
“But he’s part of my life. And we were talking a lot about him today… Forty years ago he wrote an amazing, amazing song called Imagine. And we’ve been singing that song today in the house… He lives inside of all of us in a way… still,” she added.
The pop singer ended the interview with a rendition of ‘Imagine’, adding, “I knew you were going to ask me to sing. But I’m certainly glad, because I love to sing for you and for the people.” (ANI)
