Norah Jones led her band through covers of The Beatles’ “I’ve Got A Feeling” and “Let It Be” last month on the Empire State Building’s rooftop observation deck. Video featuring the covers have been shared today on Jones’ YouTube channel two days before the 53rd anniversary of The Beatles' historic final live performance on January 30, 1969 on the rooftop of their Apple Corps headquarters in London.

The singer-songwriter was joined on “I’ve Got A Feeling” and “Let It Be” by drummer Brian Blade and bassist Gus Seyffert as well as her Puss N Boots bandmate, vocalist Sasha Dobson. Norah Jones previously shared a set of songs from her holiday album, I Dream Of Christmas, performed with the same musicians at the same location.

Both “I’ve Got A Feeling” and “Let It Be” were originally released by The Beatles on their final studio album, 1970’s Let It Be. The album’s sessions were documented for director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 documentary of the same name and were revisited for filmmaker Peter Jackson’s recent The Beatles: Get Back docu-series. “I’ve Got A Feeling” was played twice during the Fab Four’s rooftop set on January 30, 1969.
