Lizzie Bravo died this Monday (4/10), in Rio de Janeiro. She was well known for being the only Brazilian to participate in a recording with the Beatles. Bravo died in the weeks following his 70th birthday, completed on May 29th.

According to reports, in recent times, she had been experiencing physical difficulties due to a heart problem she was facing. He spent four days at CTI two weeks ago. He got better, but a week ago he returned to the hospital.
Lizzie Bravo, the Beatles fan who was invited by Paul McCartney into one of the band’s 1968 recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios to sing “a high note,” died at age 70 in her native Brazil.
Bravo’s tale of singing on a take of “Across the Universe” is one of those “amazing, but true” stories in Beatles lore: It was more than a dream come true for teenagers Lizzie Bravo (16) and her friend, Gayleen Pease (17). They were avid Beatles fans–so-called Apple Scruffs–who regularly hung around the entrance to EMI’s Abbey Road Studios, hoping for an encounter with their heroes.
Lizzie’s story with the Beatles began in 1967, when she was given a 15-year-old trip to London, where she was a friend. On the same day of her arrival, she met with the Beatles, and started hanging out outside EMI’s Abbey Road studios every day, seeing them very often. A little less than a year later, on a certain day, she was at the studio door, as usual, when Paul McCartney came out one night in February 1968, came out and asked if any of those girls there could sustain a high note. .


Lizzie said she could and even took an English friend with her. They spent two hours in the studio with the Beatles, produced by George Martin, and sang vocals for the song ‘Across the Universe’, sharing the microphone with John and Paul, alternately. 

In 2020, she released the book ‘From Rio to Abbey Road’, with several photos of the Beatles.
