Ariana Grande Debuts 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' Benefit Single
Ariana Grande’s evocative rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is now available for digital purchase and streaming.
The pop superstar closed out her “One Love Manchester” benefit concert on Sunday (June 4) by performing a rousing version of the track, which was first made famous by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz.
Proceeds from the single will go towards the victims of the terror attack that killed 22 and injured many more at her “Dangerous Woman World Tour” stop in Manchester last month, according to Pitchfork. The live version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is now available on Spotify and TIDAL.
Grande’s performance of The Wizard of Oz classic also joins the rest of the “One Love Manchester” concert as a playlist on Spotify. The set features live performances by Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Mac Miller, The Black Eyed Peas, and many more.
On top of this, Ari has repackaged “One Last Time” as a single on iTunes. A percentage of that song’s sales will go towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund too, according to Billboard.
Tonight, Ariana will resume her “Dangerous Woman World Tour” in Paris for the first time since the Manchester bombing.
“First show back tonight,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thinking of our angels every step of the way. I love you with all my heart. Grateful for and incredibly proud of my band, dancers and entire crew. I love you I love you.”
