Candice Breitz, Working Class Hero (A Portrait of John Lennon)

On the anniversary of John Lennon's death, I woke up thinking about this installation I saw at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art last year. Artist Candice Breitz assembled John Lennon fans and recorded each of the individually singing the entire WORKING CLASS HERO album. The results are fascinating. The power of this mans lyrics and how they continue to touch people, many born after his death, is amazing. This is a video of the first song on the album. enjoy.
