Remembering Lizzie Bravo, the fan who sang with the Beatles

Lizzie Bravo, a Beatles fan plucked from a group standing outside Abbey Road to provide backup vocals on the band's recording of "Across the Universe" died at age 70 this week in her native Brazil. 

Bravo and fellow fan Gayleen Pease, who died earlier this year, were selected to sing on the track when the Beatles decided the needed some high vocals on the song's chorus and Paul McCartney went outside and asked if any of the fans collected at the studio gates could help out.

The John Lennon estate paid tribute to Bravo and Pease this week with an Instagram post including some of Bravo's vintage photos:
