Ringo Starr plans on celebrating online with an all Starr broadcast benefit called "Ringo's Big Birthday Show" next Tuesday, July 7.

Ringo traditionally spreads peace and love outside of Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, Calif. for his birthday, but he's not letting the coronavirus pandemic stop him from doing so. He recruited fellow Beatles member Paul McCartney, Ringo Star & His All Starr Band guitarist Joe Walsh, Gary Clark Jr., Sheryl Crow, Sheila E. and Ben Harper will host at-home performances and feature never-before-seen concert footage. Proceeds raised during "Ringo's Big Birthday Show" will benefit these four organizations: Black Lives Matter Global Network, the David Lynch Foundation, MusiCares and WaterAid.

"As everyone knows I love gathering with fans for peace and love on my birthday," the press statement read. "But this year, I want everyone to be safe at home -  so I called up a few friends and we put this Big Birthday Show together so we could still celebrate my birthday with you all, with some great music for some great charities. I hope you will all join me! Peace and Love, Ringo."

The big birthday bash will also premiere a guest star version of Starr's "Give More Love" featuring Willie Nelson, Jeff Bridges, Jackson Browne, T Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Peter Frampton, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, and Keb' Mo'.

"Ringo's Big Birthday Show" will air on his YouTube channel at 8 p.m. ET on July 7. He will also upload a video playlist of tribute performances dedicated to the musicians who've previously recorded with Starr, performed at his past birthday celebrations and recorded new versions of his classics, including Costello, Earle, Frampton, Ben Dickey, Ben Folds, Bettye LaVette, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Judy Collins, Richard Marx and Steve Lukather.

Activists, historians and journalists have actually suggested that the Star Spangled Banner be permanently replaced. Because they claim that the author of the iconic anthem, Francis Scott Key was a slave owner. And therefore, the further assert, such an anthem will not resonate with black Americans and other minorities.

According to a report in the UK Daily Mail, these agenda driven “activists” want the national anthem to be replaced with the song “Imagine” by the late British pop star, John Lennon.
The first suggestion of such a change was made by historian Daniel E. Walker and activist/journalist Kevin Powell, as was reported by the Daily Mail. The two proffered this idea to Yahoo Music Editor Lyndsey Parker in an article that the latter wrote titled, ‘Why it Might be Time to Finally Replace The Star-Spangled Banner with a New National Anthem.’    
They assert that Francis Scott Key was not only a white man who owned slaves but made “overtly racist remarks” according to the Daily Mail report.

The report went on to say that “it is no longer appropriate that lyrics he wrote should still be the national anthem given the ongoing cultural reckoning and recognizing of systemic racism in America.”
Powell claims that Lennon’s song, “Imagine” would be a suitable replacement for the 206 year old song that was written during the Battle of Fort McHenry in Baltimore because it is the ‘most beautiful, unifying, all-people, all-backgrounds-together kind of song you could have,’ as was reported by the Daily Mail. The Star Spangled Banner became the official American national anthem in 1931.
