A children’s choir from Newtown, Conn. who recently recorded their rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow will be singing Carly Rae Jepsen‘s mega-hit Call Me Maybe during the Grammys Red Carpet this coming Sunday.

According to Tim Hayes who co-produced the recording, the children will then be interviewed by the American Idol host Ryan Seacrest via satellite during the E!’s Live From the Red Carpet preshow. Sabrina Post, the director of the Newtown Children’s Choir said, “This opportunity to do something positive lets the kids know that although a lot of things happen in our world that are not pleasant, like this that happened with us in Newtown, there are many giving people and wonderful things that can come out of life, so don't get discouraged. It teaches them to use their gifts to work through things."

The choir consists of 21 kids who are trying to help their community overcome the scars from the Sandy Hook massacre through their musical talents.

The kids have been in the public eye quite a bit recently, performing on ABC’s Good Morning America and at a benefit concert that featured artists such as Paul Simon and Johnny Winter. Hayes clarified that "they don’t have plans to record anything else, or have the kids make any more public appearances.”

"We know the kids involved have had a wonderful experience, but we think this chapter is now done, and we want these kids to get back to being kids," Hayes said.
