Some students at Sandy Hook Elementary School are paying tribute their fallen classmates and teachers, who died on Dec. 14 during the tragic shooting at their school in Newtown, Conn., with a beautiful rendition of the Wizard of Oz classic, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Members of the Sandy Hook choir recorded the tribute song with Grammy-nominated singer Ingrid Michaelson, in honor of the one month anniversary of the tragic shooting.

Ingrid and the kids recorded the song at the house of Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of the musical group Talking Heads and the Tom Tom Club. They are also longtime residents of Connecticut.

“Having the children come today with their parents, all of them having the idea that this was their gift to the other families of Sandy Hook, it was very enriching for us,” Tina says in the video, which was published on Jan. 14.

The song is also available for purchase on iTunes, and the proceeds will benefit the Newtown Youth Academy and United Way of Western Connecticut. The group also performed the song on Good Morning America on Jan. 15.
