John Lennon"s widow Yoko Ono 'choked up" after listening to popstar Lady Gaga"s version of his song 'Imagine'. The Poker Face hitmaker had sung the late songwriter's song at a Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington DC, which Yoko attended, reports Contactmusic.
Ono wrote on her Twitter blog: "Dear Lady Gaga, Thank you for singing ''Imagine''. Hearing that made me choke up. You are so beautiful! In Sisterhood and love, Yoko." The 23-year-old singer changed the lyrics of the 1971 song in tribute to gay college student Matthew Shepard, who was murdered in 1998. She sang: "Imagine there''s no heaven/ It's easy if you try. No hell below us/ And only Matthew in the sky."
