NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Children from Newtown who recently recorded a version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" will be singing during the Grammy Awards.

Sabrina Post, who directs the Newtown Music Project, says American Idol host Ryan Seacrest will be flying to Connecticut to do a live segment with the children on Sunday's broadcast.

Nothing like having first graders sing

Your stare was holding, ripped jeans
Skin was showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you’re going baby?

the kids recorded "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" because they wanted to help the town heal from the tragedy

I'm sure it was the 5- and 6-year-olds that came up with this idea, the list of five or six (so far) venues from (almost literally) one corner of the country the other, and the immediacy to do these performances one right after another.

What about the ongoing Chicago slaughter? Or aren’t dead black kids useful in pushing gun control?

No way to comment at article source. Natch. I’ve also noticed new sources limiting their comments sections more and more.....or, if they have one, it’s through “Disqus”.

So I wonder whose idea this really was...

It’s no worse than an 8-year-old singing “Super Bass.”

I guess there’s no way for those of us that find this disgusting to have our voices heard. To me this is child abuse and they will have their lives defined by this mistreatment. The radical left wing extremist demokkkrats will have all these poor little souls further brainwashed for the rest of their lives. We’ll end up with more sandra flukes. This is NOT helping them “heal”. Their parents should be ashamed but I’m sure they’re not. After all, they’re doing “something”. And anybody that states this will be vilified and called cold hearted and uncaring. You know, conservatives (and some republicans).

Dancing on the graves of children...

Agreed.

And nothing like letting our children see that they are only one tragedy away from celebrity visits, national tours, and Super Bowl performances.

Because the Left hates non-white children.

Also It’s easier to stand on the graves of victims of a mass shooting rather than cobble together all the innocent victims of inner-city crimes to fabricate your specious platform.

These children are now official props in the propaganda of Obama.

The Talking heads? Are you kidding me? Implied irony on someone’s part? They sang a song with the lyrics, “You might find yourself living in a shotgun shack”. And they wrote a song called, “Don't worry about the government”.

On top of that, Judy Garland who originally sang ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ was drugged in her teens to act for the camera. It's what eventually led to a lifelong drug addiction and ultimately to her death. It's more then a little strange or ignorant that they would pick a song originating with Garland (former drug addicted child performer) and this particular song to mourn children.

In addition to this is the news that Michelle Obama has been nominated for a Grammy?!

who are the sponsors and how do we put them on notice of the objection?

so much for the grammys being A-political.

too bad seacrest has such a large low information voter following.

Considering some of the filthy lyrics they may hear, has ChINs (`children in need of services') been notified? Won't anyone think of the children?

Your parenthetical headline comment says it all for me. Just more dancing in the victim’s blood by those who would remove freedom in their search for perfect security. Using kids like this just burns my biscuits...

And where, pray tell, are all the FReepers who arrogantly insist that this shooting was REAL?

Where are they now?

Where are they now that it is CLEAR AS DAYLIGHT that these kids were never exposed to anything traumatic like gunfire and dead bodies.

Because if these "Sandy Hook survivors" were exposed to the true nature of death and destruction, not a single damn one of them would be singing, dancing and laughing about ANYTHING.

This "Call Me Maybe" performance further vindicates those of us who know this entire "incident" is nothing more than a LIE, SCAM and FRAUD perpetuated by pathological liars, sneaks, cheats and fakers.

They are all complicit in this criminal fabrication.

Gene Rosen, Robbie Parker, Nick Phelps, Laura Phelps, Kaitlyn Roig, Lynn McDonnell, Chris McDonnell, Sally Cox, Krista Rekos and the Soto brother are all LIARS, FRAUDS, PHONIES and FAKERS.

And just when did you stop beating your spouse? (/irrationality) You are right on point about their illogic, especially when combined with their egregious manipulation of children and crime victims to attempt a political power play.

These kids had their lives torn apart by a madman.

If singing together gives them some semblance of peace, it would be sad to attack them for it.

Here. Sadly, it's not at all hard to find the ignorant freepers who think there was no shooting. They love these threads, they love to exploit the death of children for their own purposes.
