Ingrid Michaelson has joined students from Newtown, Conn. in releasing a recording of the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” as a response to the school shooting last month. Proceeds from the song — available for download now — benefit Newtown Youth Academy and United Way of Western Connecticut.

The song was recorded in the home studio of Connecticut residents Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of Talking Heads and the Tom Tom Club. “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,” Weymouth said in a behind-the-scenes clip.
