The Beatles wrote a lot of fabulous songs, right? And this musical tribute to that big ball of fire in the sky has to be one of their best. It’s so bright, so cheerful, so full of hope.
We love it! And we can’t wait to sing it to you at our next concert performance, Sun, Moon & Stars, at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at St. Katharine of Siena Church in Wayne.
Come catch a few rays with us. Ahh…the perfect cure for the winter blues.
