NEW YORK - Paul McCartney has celebrated his second wedding anniversary with his wife and a few hundred New York City high school students.
The 71-year-old performed Wednesday at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, which was opened by Tony Bennett in Queens in 2001.
McCartney said, "Happy anniversary, Baby," to Nancy Shevell before going into his latest song, called "New." He said the song was inspired by his wife as the students turned to her and gushed.
The event with iHeartRadio was to celebrate McCartney's upcoming album, also called "New." The album is being released Oct. 15.
One student asked McCartney when he felt he officially made it in the music industry. McCartney said when the Beatles recorded their first single, "Love Me Do."
The students cheered, and McCartney said: "You shouldn't know about that."
