Sid Bernstein, the man who brought The Beatles to New York and America, has died at the age of 95.

Bernstein worked as a manager and promoter for some of the 20th century's biggest names in music, including Tony Bennett, the Rolling Stones and Judy Garland.

He may be best known for booking The Beatles' first New York City show at Carnegie Hall, and later, their iconic performance at Shea Stadium.

In recent years, the Harlem native recorded a cover album of his favorite songs at the age of 93.

Bernstein is survived by his wife of 50 years, Geraldine, and his six children.
