This past weekend at Madison Square Garden, some of the music world's biggest stars came together to honor someone very important: John Lennon.

In honor of the legendary Lennon, and what would have been his 75 birthday, Blackbird Presents and ACM threw an epic bash, with an even more impressive guest list. "Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert" featured performances by Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Steven Tyler, Sheryl Crow and more! The concert's benefits went towards the poverty-fighting organization, Robin Hood, something that the peacemaking Lennon would have been so honored by. 

One of the many great performances of the night was that of Willie Nelson. Prior to his performance Lennon's wife at the time of his passing, Yoko Ono, gave powerful speech about rock and roll. She remembered her husband, and told the crowd, 

I know John would say, 'Rock and roll is here to stay!'

The crowd went wild, and Ono then welcomed Nelson to the stage, getting the crowd even more excited! 

Nelson went right into a stunning rendition of the song we all know and love, "Imagine." A rendition we're sure even Lennon himself would have been impressed by. 

Nelson put his heart and soul into the performance, singing with such emotion. Each and every word seemed more powerful than the last. 

Lennon would have been 75-years-old on October 9th, and this month marks 35 years since his untimely passing. 

John Lennon will always be in our hearts, and we will never forget the positivity and light he brought to the world.

Rest in peace.  

LYRICS BELOW 

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
