The classic Beatles tune “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” was inspired by a drawing that John Lennon’s son Julian had done, featuring a girl in his nursery school.

Recently, Julian Lennon discovered that the same Lucy had passed away, from the chronic disease Lupus. He set out to record a tribute song and ended up working with fellow musician James Scott Cook, who coincidentally was also looking to record a tribute to his grandmother — also named Lucy and also someone who had suffered from Lupus.

The result is “Lucy,” a single now available on iTunes — with all net proceeds going to the Lupus Foundation of America and St. Thomas’ Lupus Trust.
