VIDEO: Across the Universe at the John Lennon Wall

Czech Republic, Europe, Video

No, John Lennon wasn’t able to come visit Prague during his lifetime. But the people of Prague love him nonetheless.

His words inspired a country who was suffering under a socialist regime.

Moments after his death, people started painting graffiti and messages for him on a nondescript wall in the city’s old district. Years passed and the wall has been immortalized and has been a major tourist destination in the city.I purposely visited the wall during my visit to Prague and chanced upon this solitary musician singing one of the Beatles’ major hits “Across the Universe”

Yes he was asking for coins. but the words he was singing, nonetheless, added an element of realness to the place.
