Wednesday 6pm ET: Feature Artist – Julian Lennon

Julian John Charles Lennon (born April 8, 1963) is an English singer, musician and photographer, best known as the son of The Beatles member John Lennon and his first wife Cynthia.

He was the direct inspiration for three Beatles’ songs: “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” (1967), “Hey Jude” (1968), and “Good Night” (1968). His parents divorced in 1968.

He has produced a number of albums starting with Valotte (1984), as well as a documentary film WhaleDreamers on an environmental theme. Lennon has also held exhibitions of his photography.

Lennon founded The White Feather Foundation in 2009. Its mission “embraces environmental and humanitarian issues and in conjunction with partners from around the world helps to raise funds for the betterment of all life, and to honour those who have truly made a difference.” Its name came from a conversation Lennon once had with his father. “Dad once said to me that should he pass away, if there was some way of letting me know he was going to be OK – that we were all going to be OK – the message would come to me in the form of a white feather. … the white feather has always represented peace to me.”
