A month after the horrific shooting in Connecticut, two musicians — you may recognize them from Talking Heads –have done what they could do to help the town.
The kids appeared on Good Morning America today:
Singer Ingrid Michaelson was asked to lend her voice to the project – a cover of the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
“I thought, well, you know, even if it makes these kids who have been through so much, if it brings them and afternoon of joy and excitement then that’s what I can do, then that’s what I’ll do,” she said, adding: “I think there’s nothing more hopeful than hearing children’s voices in unison all together. So yeah, I think people will feel that way, I hope so.”
Ten-year-old Kayla Verga sang for her friend, 6-year-old Jessica Rekos, who was one of the students killed when Adam Lanza went on his Dec. 14 shooting rampage at the school.
“Singing the song makes me feel like she’s with me and she’s beside me, singing along with me,” Kayla told “GMA.”
