John LennonYoko Ono joined with fans of her late husband John Lennon in Iceland to mark what would have been his 67th birthday by unveiling a tower of light in his name.

Ono lit up the Imagine Peace Tower in Videy island, near Reykjavik, as a choir sang Lennon’s 1975 hit “Imagine”.

Accompanied by her son Sean Lennon, Yoko was also joined by Beatles drummer Ringo Starr and George Harrison’s widow Olivia.

“We’re all here for Johnny’s birthday and the big light,” Starr said. “I love the light.”

The tower is a beam of light radiating from a wishing well, which is engraved with the words “imagine peace” in 24 languages.
