BC man sings with Beatle

A B.C. man got to share the stage with rock legend Paul McCartney.

Grand Forks resident Gregg Anderson sang with McCartney during the sound check for his Brooklyn concert on Thursday.

He won the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in a contest by donating to the David Lynch Foundation through a contest by Omaze, which raises money for charities by offering prizes like a cameo role in movies and other star-studded experiences.

"My whole world was just spinning," the postal worker told CTV from his hotel room.

The two sang a duet of the Beatles hit "Get Back."

"He made me feel very comfortable. Within 30 seconds, all the nervousness and awe was gone," said Anderson.

"You know the words?" McCartney asked.

Anderson did, and even threw in a little McCartney impression. "He looked at me and went, oh yeah!"

McCartney gave Anderson, who recently lost his father, a hug and let him hold his bass guitar.
