Michael lends Lennon piano to peace show

Singer George Michael is to lend the piano on which John Lennon composed Imagine to an anti-war exhibition in the United States.

It's being organised by his partner Kenny Goss at the Goss Gallery in Dallas.

The singer bought the piano - which is an upright model and not the white, grand piano seen in the video for Imagine - at an auction in October 2000 for more than $2 million.

It has never left the UK before.

We decided to do it in Dallas, because what better place is there to reiterate how important peace is?" Goss told Reuters.

"Dallas is George Bush's home. It's a great place to remind people how important it is that we find peace."
