The John Lennon 75th Birthday Celebration was taped at Madison Square Garden on December 5th, and was shown on AMC Saturday night December 19th. The Roots and soul singer Bilal did a moving rendition of Lennon’s “Mother”. MC/rapper Black Thought drops his own verse of his interpretation of the song during the performance. While, Bilal blows the crowd away with powerful vocals and gets a standing ovation from the audience.
