Here's a nice way to unwind after a long day. Lie down, dim the lights, close your eyes and put this on in the background.

It's violinist Michael Province, 15, and cellist Nathan Chan, 16, collaborating on a beautiful rendition of 'Let It Be' by The Beatles.

It was shot at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore. Their cover has been seen more than half a million times in two days.

In another cool story related to The Beatles, a rare set of photos from their 1965 concert at Shea Stadium in New York have sold for $45,000.

They were shot by a guy named Marc Weinstein, who used a fake press pass to get past a police officer and next to the stage.

Incredibly, the only other photographer there ran out of film during the show.

It was The Beatles biggest concert ever, in front of 55,000 fans, and the biggest ever rock concert by any group up to that time.

You can check out some of the photos on the BBC's website here, and read the entire story of how Weinstein sneaked into the concert at examiner.com
