After nearly 48 years, Yoko Ono will finally get a songwriting credit for her role in John Lennon's classic "Imagine." 

David Israelite, the chief executive of the National Music Publishers Association, announced Wednesday, as the song was honored with the association’s “Centennial Song” award, that Ms. Ono would be added as a writer.
