Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, members of both The Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, took some children from Newtown, Connecticut into the studio with them, to record the Judy Garland classic “Over The Rainbow,” as a way to raise money for local charities.

The group of 6 to 9-year-olds were classmates, friends, and neighbors of the 20 children and 6 adults, who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

According to the Huffington Post, the song goes on sale on January 15th on Amazon and iTunes, with proceeds going to the Newtown Youth Academy and the United Way of Western Connecticut.
