It is with much sadness and tears in my eyes that I want to let all of you that haven't already heard, that one of the biggest supporters of this site from day 1 and Beatles fan, Lizzie Bravo has passed away.
Because of Meet the Beatles...For Real, I became friends with Lizzie. Before I had this site, she was just a name that I knew as one of the girls that were chosen to sing in the background of "Across the Universe." Almost right away in 2009 Lizzie contacted me and started correcting me on facts and photos. She'd tell me the names of fans in the photos and a little information about them. She would leave comments and tell other fans to visit this site. I really believe that Lizzie Bravo is the reason why so many people have come to this place on the Internet and I could never thank her enough.
Lizzie and I had a lot in common - we both love John Lennon the most. We are both very sensitive. We both had similar outlooks on life. We both wrote a book and were trying to self-promote it. We would chat on the phone from time to time. I would have never thought I would have been friends with someone that actually recorded with the Beatles. Someone that lived in Brazil.
I know that everyone that visits this site knows Lizzie too. Her death is a huge loss to the entire Beatles community. I am sure that most of you here have your own story of her answering your question, telling you about when she recorded Across the Universe, or some other amazing tale.
We were so blessed to have Lizzie in our community of Beatles friends. I heard that she passed away during a procedure on her heart, but I am not sure if that is true or a rumor.
I ask that everyone listens to Across the Universe today and spread peace to those around you in Lizzie's memory.
We will always love you Lizzie!
