Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performed John Lennon's classic “Imagine” during the memorial service for former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon (November 28th).
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, additional performers included pianist David Osborne and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chamber Chorus.
Following his tribute at Glenn Memorial Church on the campus of Emory University Brooks said, “What I loved the most about Miss Rosalynn’s service is that every living First Lady showed up…no matter what political party, no matter what time or era. Every First Lady showed up to pay their respect. To me, that says a ton about Miss Rosalynn and her wish for the future that we all come together.” SOUNDUCE
