IMAGINE Project for Unicef with Changmin

Choikang Changmin joined several other SM artists to sing the iconic John Lennon song, IMAGINE, for a special awareness project to give every child a fair chance, or equal opportunity at life. The project was filmed and created in 2015 before Changmin enlisted, but was finally released.

A special website launched on June 27th, 2016, Imagine Project 2016, with a moving video and facts to educate with such statistics as: Improverished children death rate is nearly two times higher than wealthy children, 38% of poor children drop out of elementary school without reading, writing or arithmatic skills, 9 out of 10 (90%) children in Africa suffer from extreme poverty, one in four children of the world live in conflicted areas. The website also has a sponsor/donation button.

Changmin opens the Music Video with, “Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try…” and later towards the end of the song he sings, “And the world will be as one.”

Song lyrics:

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try

No Hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today… Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
