He didn’t just bring his legendary musicianship, he also brought a birthday cake.
The Beatles: A Legacy Beyond Time
For those who can recall, the Beatles burst onto the scene on the old Ed Sullivan show.

Reflecting on Jesus’ parable of the mustard seed, it’s fascinating how something seemingly small can have an enormous impact, just like the Beatles’ music did, resonating across generations.
