Cindy Blackman Santana & Carlos Santana Help Launch SongAidTM to Benefit WhyHunger’s Rapid Response Fund with John Lennon and Yoko Ono-Penned Classic “Imagine”

Cindy and Carlos are among the first musicians to join forces with SongAid and WhyHunger’s ongoing effort to fight the global hunger crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic with their version of the John Lennon and Yoko Ono-penned classic “Imagine.”  Starting on May 29, each week SongAid will release new music from a growing list of contributing artists. Each time a fan listens to a SongAid song, the streaming proceeds will go to WhyHunger’s Rapid Response Fund. Content will be distributed through a partnership with The Orchard and made available to fans listening on Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, Apple and sharing on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. 

 “It is an honor to work alongside WhyHunger on the SongAid campaign. We have always been strong supporters of their work and it gives us great joy to share John Lennon’s message of peace and light, together with them, to make a tangible difference in the world and feed those in need. The world is in need of a spiritual hug, healing, and love and it is our hope that the divine intentionality of ‘Imagine,’ combined with the energy, interpretation, and new arrangement, will touch your heart and feed those in need. We are in service to Yoko Ono, and everyone at WhyHunger for the incredible work they are doing and their beautiful mission to feed the hungry,” said Cindy Blackman Santana & Carlos Santana.

“Now more than ever, it’s important that we all come together to ensure no one in our world goes hungry,” said Yoko Ono Lennon, a long-time supporter of WhyHunger. “That’s why I am once again standing with WhyHunger and SongAid as they galvanize the music community to help nourish people through the power of music and build a better world for our future. 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.”

All proceeds from SongAid will be used to expand WhyHunger’s national Find Food Database, Texting service and Hotline connecting seniors, children, veterans, hourly workers and families impacted by hunger with free food and essential services, and to support frontline food pantries, small-scale farmers and food chain workers facing unprecedented risks and economic hardship during the COVID-19 crisis.

Cindy and Carlos’ version of Imagine will be available to fans listening on Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, Apple and sharing on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok on Friday, May 29.
