Pentatonix put a hauntingly beautiful spin on John Lennon’s timeless song “Imagine” YouTube/PTXofficial

Few songs have stood the test of time quite like John Lennon’s 1971 hit “Imagine.” The lyrics still ring so pure and true, more than 40 years later.

On March 10, Pentatonix released their own version of Lennon’s legendary song, putting their a cappella spin on the moving lyrics and giving the song a new angle — all the while respecting Lennon’s original intention and vision.

“Imagine” has been covered by countless artists throughout the years, including Neil Young and Lady Gaga. Anyone who has ever covered the song did so with the intention of spreading its message of inclusion and love. Such is the case with Pentatonix’s beautiful version.

As the group sings the lyrics, they simultaneously hold up signs that read “LGBTQ+,” “Man,” “Jewish,” “American,” “Black,” “Christian,” “Latina” and “Woman,” consecutively, to indicate that we are all one.
