Written by Paul McCartney «Let It Be» was inspired by a dream the singer had of his deceased mother, Mary, assuring him, amongst the turmoil of the Beatles' slow breakup, that everything would be all right. McCartney eventually transformed the song into a gospel-style number for the Get Back sessions that would eventually be released as the album Let It Be. The earliest known performance of «Let It Be» occurred on January 3, 1969, during rehearsals for the LIB project.
