Some of Japan’s top artists gather each year to participate in the Dream Power John Lennon Super Live, a charity concert founded by Yoko Ono to donate schools to deprived children all over the world. The tenth edition of this concert will be held this year – a year that marks the seventieth anniversary of John Lennon’s birth and the thirtieth anniversary of his passing – on the day he died, December 8.

Responding to Yoko’s call, an eclectic mix of artists will perform alongside her. The lineup is highly anticipated every year, and the 2010 edition of the concert features a fantastic lineup consisting of fifteen acts. In addition to Super Live veterans such as Tamio Okuda, Kazuya Yoshii, Yuzu, Kazuyoshi Saito, Kenichi Asai, Love Psychedelico, Bonnie Pink, Keiichi Sokabe, and Michihiko Yanai Project, we have some new blood in Yoshikuni Dochin and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra. The singer Cocco will participate not as a musician but as MC, while Kyoka Suzuki will perform a reading of “Imagine” and Sayuri Yoshinaga will provide narration.

With this being an anniversary edition, this year’s concert, the largest John Lennon tribute event in the world, is bound to be more exciting than ever before.

A total of 107 schools in 28 countries will have been donated after this year’s concert.

This annual concert started in 2001 based on Yoko’s call to donate schools to children all over the world, and 95 schools in 26 countries have been donated from the proceeds of the past nine editions. With this year’s concert, we are planning to donate one school each to Haiti (where a major earthquake destroyed many schools), Guatemala, and Mali, as well as two schools each in the Philippines and Senegal, and five schools in Pakistan, for a total of twelve schools in six countries.

We will have surpassed the 100 schools mark, and our total will run up to 107 schools in 28 countries.

Beautiful love that united them on earth and made it an integral part musician eternal for all who were privileged to hear her sing and be a shining star.

    Dear Yoko,
    I just watched LENNONYC on PBS and was very moved by it and you.
    The film gave me new insights into you and John and it was wonderful to see.
    Thanks for all your work for peace and children.

    Yoko…You are so great to do this for John and the world..I think some how John knew you would. When i watched his documentary on tv one of his songs he was working on there was a little bird singing in the back ground he said where is that bird can you here it…I think it was his mind telling him we would all be intouch one day on the internet twitting our thoughts to each just like he wanted. Love you and all you do for the world…
