Lauper & Browne Duet At Lennon Tribute Show

CYNDI LAUPER teamed up with JACKSON BROWNE for an emotional rendition of hit song A DAY IN THE LIFE to honour JOHN LENNON at a tribute concert on Friday night (12Nov10).
The pair was among the stars who turned out to remember the Beatles legend at the one-off charity show in New York, to mark Lennon's 70th birthday last month (Oct10).
Lauper, who also performed Across The Universe, told the audience at the Beacon Theatre how she and her sister often pretended to be Lennon and his bandmate Paul MCCartney whenever they sang together as youngsters. She then welcomed Browne onstage for the duet.
Other performers at the event included Patti Smith, who sang Strawberry Fields and paid tribute to Lennon's widow Yoko Ono during the show.
Ono was unable to attend the tribute, but sent a video message telling organisers: "John would have loved what you are doing."
Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Playing for Change Foundation, which promotes peace with music.
