This was a song in the last album of the group and the last ever recorded song before the group seprated.
This is a song that has had countless covers everywhere. But, this cover in particular is one strong expection.
This gentlemen’s trio started performing in 2014 under the group name GENTRI. The men in the group are Casey Elliott, Bradley Quinn Lever, and Brad Robins. Their produces Stephen Nelson is the one that arranges their voices so that this perfection comes out in the end.
As reported in Liftable:
Their renditions are infused with incredible three-part harmonies and melodies, and there is something extra special about their version of “Let it Be.” They recorded their song in an empty church, their voices perfectly melting together and ringing across the church pews.
The raw emotion within this performance gave me chills instantly. Even though there are only three people singing, it almost sounds as if there is an entire choir singing along with them.
In the video of their performance, which has been viewed nearly 3.5 million times, they even gave a brief history of the song. “Mother Mary” in the song refers to Paul McCartney’s mother, Mary, who died from cancer when he was only 14 years old.
Following in the footsteps of many other writers, artists, and musicians before him, McCartney pulled his inspiration from a dream in which his mother appeared and spoke to him. While she may not have used the exact wording that ended up in the song, McCartney said that the overall point was the same:
“In the dream she said, ‘It’ll be all right.’ I’m not sure if she used the words ‘Let it be’ but that was the gist of her advice, it was, ‘Don’t worry too much, it will turn out OK.’ It was such a sweet dream I woke up thinking, Oh, it was really great to visit with her again. I felt very blessed to have that dream. So that got me writing the song Let It Be.”
You have to hear this amazing version of the legendary song to understand why millions love their performance. You will definitely be impressed.
There is something genuinely unique about this performance, and the church ambiance makes it even more incredible. Do you agree?
