Northern Irish rockers Snow Patrol have recorded a version of a John Lennon track to highlight the ongoing suffering in war-torn Sudan. The former beatle's song ISOLATION is being covered by the band as part of human rights group Amnesty International's new online video campaign for the troubled African country. The rockers were introduced to the project by crusading U2 star Bono, who has also enlisted the help of Hollywood actor Don Cheadle. Internet audiences are encouraged to send an e-card to Sudan's Minister for Justice after watching the video. Snow patrol frontman GARY LIGHTBODY says, "Music is a good way of bringing awareness to people without ramming it down their throats because it is something everyone can relate to."

This is certainly a cause close to John Lennon's heart, I am sure he would have approved. If John was alive today I am sure he would record something himself, even write something new. Since he and Yoko were involved in huamn rights causes in the 1970's, and peace campaigns.I am sure John's spirit is watching, and saying Give Peace a Chance. Do you get that you Sudanese Leader.Oh how we need John Lennon now!, come on Paul and Ringo why don't you do something.
