Some of the biggest international names in music have come together to raise
money and awareness of Amnesty International’s work on the human
rights crisis in Darfur, Sudan with the release today (25 June) of a new CD
of classic John Lennon songs.
Twenty-eight stars – including Snow Patrol, U2, Avril Lavigne, R.E.M,
Aerosmith, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, The Cure, Snow Patrol and Youssou
N’Dour – appear on a double CD – Instant Karma: The Amnesty
International Campaign To Save Darfur – featuring exclusive versions of
iconic songs from the Lennon back-catalogue. Extra exclusive tracks are also
