U.S. Postal ServiceThe United States Postal Service has unveiled a sneak peek at some of the postage stamps it will introduce next year, and among them is one paying tribute to the late John Lennon. The Lennon stamp will be the next installment of the USPS' Music Icons series of "Forever" stamps.

No release date has been announced for the commemorative stamp honoring the Beatles legend. The U.S. Postal Service has issued a number of other Beatles-themed stamps over the years, including one in 1999 that commemorated the Fab Four's 1968 animated flick Yellow Submarine.

Among the other artists who have appeared on Music Icons stamps are Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and jazz singer Sarah Vaughan.

Other notable people who will be honored with new stamps in 2018 include singer/actress Lena Horne, astronaut Sally Ride and children's show host Fred Rogers, a.k.a. "Mr. Rogers."
