In the April 12, 2003 edition of Billboard magazine, Bill Porricelli, MPL's senior Vice President of Promotion and New Product Development announced that an upcoming installment of the American Idol television program will feature the contestants singing "The Songs of Paul McCartney". According to Mr. Porricelli:"It's an opportunity for young singers and viewers who have heard Paul's music in their parents' record collections to hear it on TV. But 10-year-old kids sang the words to Paul's post-Beatles songs at his shows as well as the Beatles', so it really puts an exclamation point on the incredible year that Paul's had."
