Sandy Hook children's 'Over the Rainbow' lifts spirits

The gift of song can help to heal hearts, and 20 Newtown children hope their recording of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" will bring a measure of peace.
The children, including a few Sandy Hook students and survivors of the Dec. 14 mass shooting, performed the song live Tuesday morning during the closing minutes of "Good Morning America" on ABC. They recorded the song Jan. 9 in Fairfield, at the home recording studio of Talking Heads' and Tom Tom Club's Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz.
Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson accompanied the children on ukulele at both performances. The song is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon, and all proceeds from the project will go to the nonprofit Newtown Youth Academy and the United Way of Western Connecticut.
