Beatles family responded to 9/11 with music to heal

The extended Beatles family responded to the 9/11 tragedy in the best way they could -- music in the form of two big concerts. On Oct. 2, 2001, John Lennon's music was the centerpiece of "Come Together: A Night for John Lennon's Words and Music." Performers included Yolana Adams and Billy Preston, Dave Matthews, Cyndi Lauper, Dave Stewart, Lou Reed, Natalie Merchant, Craig David and the Stone Temple Pilots. All the musicians performed Beatles or John Lennon songs.Also appearing were members of the acting community, including Kevin Bacon, Dustin Hoffman, Edie Falco, Ben Stiller, James Gandolfini and Kevin Spacey.The highlight was appearances by Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono. Sean Lennon sang "Across the Universe" with Moby and Rufus Wainwright and joined in at the end on "Give Peace a Chance" and "Power to the People."
