Let it Be

April 15, 1971 The Beatles win an Oscar for Best Film Music (Original Song Score) for the Paul McCartney-penned “Let It Be.”  (via vh1.com)

Let it Be is a straight up gospel song.  Carol Woods sings the hell out of it in the movie Across the Universe.  Find it and listen to it.   I use it at the end of my set.  It’s a sure fire sing along. Everyone knows it and loves it.

At some point I plan to arrange Let it Be for a full gospel choir but for now I’m happy to sit down and play and sing it — just me and my out-of-tune piano.
