In a surprise pre-recorded virtual performance, Keith Urban joined artists from around the world in singing John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s song, “Imagine,” near the end of opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics on Friday morning. The other artists included John Legend, Alejandro Sanz, Angélique Kidjo and the Suginami Junior Chorus in an arrangement by Hans Zimmer.
