Opening for Pope Francis, Shakira Sings “Imagine There’s No Heaven… and No Religion, Too”

by

On Friday, before the United Nations General Assembly began its meeting in New York City and before Pope Francis delivered his message to representatives from all over the world, singer Shakira (who, like the Pope, hails from South America) kicked off the festivities by performing “Imagine” by John Lennon.

That is, she sang a song with the lyrics “Imagine there’s no Heaven… and no religion, too.”

Intentionally or not, it was a powerful Humanistic message from the pop star to the star Pope.

It’s much better than the Cee Lo Green version of the song, which he once sang on TV with these revised lyrics:

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And all religion’s true
