Volkswagen paid tribute to its iconic Beetle, which ended production in 2019, with a national commercial called "The Last Mile" — which features an animated film scored with the Beatles' popular song "Let It Be." 

Among the voices singing the iconic song? Students from Oak Park's Mann School and the Oak Park Pro Musica Youth Chorus. 

"Since 1990, PMYC has brought choral music education and performance opportunities to three generations of singers," according to the organization's website. "In that time, we have worked with over 1,000 children singing in over 150 performances around the world."
