Newtown Students Perform “Over the Rainbow' to Help Sandy Hook

Over the last week, 21 students from Newtown have been working on a project called “A Song From Sandy Hook" and performing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to benefit their community. 

The students performed at the Fairfield home of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, of the Talking Heads as a tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, according to the Web site of musician Ingrid Michaelson, who performs with them. 

The song is on sale on Amazon, as well as on iTunes, and proceeds will be donated to the United Way of Western Connecticut as well as the Newtown Youth Academy.

According to Rolling Stone, owner of CBGB Tim Hayes is the producer of the project.

“The children were beautiful. The song was spiritual. What a beautiful way to honor those children and teachers. I hope this gives the families comfort as they cope with their grief,” one review on Amazon said.
