Students from Sandy Hook Elementary School, many of whom were present on the day of last month's horrific Newtown shooting, gathered this morning on Good Morning America.

With assistance from singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, the 20 children (ages 6-9) sang a cover of "Over the Rainbow," with the track now available on iTunes and all proceeds benefiting the Newtown Youth Academy, a local nonprofit, and the United Way of Western Connecticut.

It's a moving performance in the name of a tremendous cause. Watch now:
