Yesterday is an upcoming movie starring Himesh Patel and directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later). And it follows a singer who wakes up to find out that the Beatles never existed. He becomes an overnight sensation by performing their music, and the rest is history. Last night, Himesh Patel performed songs from The Beatles during the Yesterday pop-up record release party at the defunct Tower Records location in West Hollywood. Nerd Reactor was invited to experience the lovely event.

It was a very intimate¬†evening filled with media and influencers mingling and a green-screen stage for taking fun photos. Since this is an event to celebrate the record release for Yesterday (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), Patel made an appearance on stage to perform two songs from The Beatles, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Yesterday.”

The album is now available, and you can check it out on Spotify below. Of course, if you want to experience Patel’s performance for the first time, you can wait until the film hits theaters next week.

Synopsis: Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes an overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.

The film is directed by Danny Boyle and stars Himesh Patel as Jack Malik and Lily James as Ellie Appleton. Yesterday hits theaters on June 28, 2019.
