Garth Brooks And Trisha Yearwood Sing ‘Imagine’ At Rosalynn Carter’s Memorial

Two of the biggest names in country music – Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood – turned in a moving and emotional performance of a John Lennon classic at the memorial service for former First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

Sadly, because of sin, death is a part of life. All will experience it at one time or another. But even before that point, death is something that has likely touched and impacted everyone’s life. Losing a loved one, regardless of the circumstances, will always be a time of grief, pain and sorrow. But while time may remove some of that sting and hurt, their absence will forever be noticeable.

Rosalynn Carter, the wife of the 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, passed away at 96 years old. A memorial service for the former first lady and Georgia native brought many recognizable people together to remember and commemorate her life. 

Two of those people who attended Rosalynn’s service were musicians Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. Not only were they in attendance, but they also performed “Imagine,” a classic song from the late John Lennon. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Garth strums on a guitar as his wife, Trisha, sings the beloved tune. Garth joins in and sings sporadically, stepping to the microphone to belt out a few lyrics. But for the most part, Trisha shoulders the singing responsibilities.

“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”

At the conclusion of their touching and solemn performance, several give the talented couple a hearty round of applause.

Also, right before the clip ends, the camera focuses on Rosalynn's casket. Trisha is spotted walking over as she momentarily places a hand on the casket. 

Prayers go out to the Carter family in their time of grief. 

Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
