AceShowbizCarlos Santana and his wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, have received praise from Yoko Ono for their reimagining of John Lennon‘s classic, “Imagine”.

The widow of the late Beatles icon is raving about the couple’s new charity cover, which benefits the WhyHunger and SongAid organisations in a bid to help feed hungry people who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Now more than ever, it’s important that we all come together to ensure no one in our world goes hungry,” Yoko Ono said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “I am excited that Cindy Blackman Santana and Carlos Santana’s beautiful rendition of Imagine is helping to kick off this important campaign and bring my late husband John Lennon’s vision of a peaceful world, free from hunger, to this critical cause.”

The “Imagine” cover by the Santanas is the first in a series of songs from a string of artists, set to appear on a weekly SongAid playlist, with proceeds benefiting the WhyHunger Rapid Response Fund. Other artists taking part in the campaign include Tom Morello, Darryl “DMC” McDaniel, the Hellraisers, the Silkroad Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma, Wilco, Steve Miller, and more.
