Willie Nelson Covers John Lennon Song to Benefit Amnesty International Campaign for Darfur


Willie Nelson was one of artists who covered a John Lennon tune, to benefit Amnesty International’s campaign to support Darfor.  Also featured are Green Day, performing cover of John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero”, and Black Eyed Peas, The Cure, Jack Johnson, and many more Willie’s song is not on the 2-cd set that is for sale, and I don’t understand why, but it is available for purchase at digital retail sites.


Though the United Nations has not been willing to describe the Darfur conflict as a genocide, it is well established that at least 400,000 people have been killed, with an additional 2.5 million displaced by the conflict between the Janjaweed and Fur, Zaghawa, and Massaleit ethnic groups.
