WALNUT, CA—The Beatles reunited to headline the Collegewood Elementary holiday show on Wednesday morning.
Of course, it wasn’t the legendary John, Paul, George, and Ringo or even a Fab Four tribute band.
But, it certainly felt like the British Invasion with a recorded introduction of the sensational rock group debuting on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
Then third graders Kyle Martin, Anthony Li, Summit Purcell, and Brandon Zhang took the stage donning mop-top wigs and skinny black neckties and began singing and playing their hearts out.
Classmates joined the lively Beatles rendition of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, “Let It Snow”, and “Feliz Navidad.”
And they brought a bit of nostalgia to hundreds of parents clapping and tapping toes in the audience.
The annual Sing-A-Round featured songs performed by every grade level, students joining hands during the finale “Peace on Earth,” and a special visit from Santa Claus.
