Sir Paul McCartney has returned to the church in his hometown which rejected him from the choir when he was an aspiring 11-year-old singer.
The former Beatle auditioned for a role in Liverpool Cathedral's choir when he was a youngster, singing a verse of traditional Christmas carol Once In Royal David's City in a bid to impress the judging panel.
MCCartney was devastated when he was rejected by the choir, but went on to carve out a career as one of the most successful musicians in history.
But the star chose to return to the cathedral to premiere his first choral composition with the choir that rejected him all those years ago.
He says, "I have a lot of connections with the cathedral, having gone there as a kid and applied to join the choir.
"I got turned down so this is my revenge trip!"

I'm sure the cathedral heirarchy in Liverpool has often kicked itself for having turned down one of the world's greatest music legends. It could be that at age 14 Sir Paul's voice had not matured to the level the rest of the world has come to know and adore. Oh well, too late now! I'll bet the cathedral's music director has kicked his own behind many times since then!!!

What a shame and what a loss for them! It shows a lot of strength and character on Paul's part that he is paying them a visit after all this time.
