Some songs have been covered more times than anyone can count. One of those song is without a doubt Imagine by John Lennon, and it’s not hard to see why. It truly goes without saying that Imagine isn’t just a song, it’s an anthem, it’s a statement made by a man who sought peace and harmony, and without getting too sanctimonious, I’d even be willing to say that the song is a peaceful battle cry.
The lyrics to this timeless masterpiece still burrow into us just as deeply as they did when the song was first written. I could gush about the song all day, but going to my point about the song being covered more than the stars in the sky, some of those covers are good, and some not so much. That being said, there are some that are truly phenomenal like the one we’ve just found here!
What you’re about to watch is a video in which an incredibly talented musician by the name of boyceavenue sits behind his piano and performs a breathtaking cover of the aforementioned song Imagine. To put it simply, this guy captures the essence of John Lennon with his fitting tribute performance. See for yourself.
