Americans Against the Tea Party is proud to bring you this moment of beauty, courtesy of Ingrid Michaelson, and children from Newtown. One month after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut, 21 students gathered to record the Academy Award-winning tune “Over the Rainbow.”
The Newtown children got some star power to help them. Singer-Songwiter Ingrid Michaelson leads the children, and studio owners and former members of the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club recorded and produced the tune.
Life shows up and we get distracted. Frustrated. We have to remember to always have an attitude of gratitude. Focus on what’s important. Be the change. Breathe.
Here’s a video about the recording process and the story behind this project:
