Ariana Grande has released her live version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the Manchester victims
Following Sunday’s (June 4th) benefit concert in Manchester, Ariana Grande has released “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which she performed at the end of the concert.
The move comes after Grande officially re-released her track “One Last Time” as a charity single after it became an unofficial anthem for the survivors and victims of those who were affected by the tragedy that took place at her concert in Manchester last month. The singer is donating proceeds from the song to the We Love Manchester fund.
On Sunday, heaps of artists headed to Manchester to pay tribute to Manchester, including the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Niall Horan, Take That, Robbie Williams, and Miley Cyrus, who performed a duet with Grande.
Now Ariana Grande has shared her moving cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” todigital retails and streaming services in a bid to raise more money for the fun.
The singer performed a rousing cover of the track, which is taken from The Wizard of Oz, at the end of the concert, and it brought many people, including the singer herself, to tears.

Grande actually shared an adorable video on Instagram of a baby getting emotional after watching her performance from Sunday night. The clip sees the youngster watching Ariana perform the song, and starting to cry at how emotional it all is.
Meanwhile, in the U.K, Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” is vying for the top spot on the charts. According to the Official Charts Company, the song has seen streams and sales increase 53% compared to the same period a week ago.
If sales and streams continue to rise, the track could become the official number one in the country, overtaking Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacitio” remix, which features Justin Bieber.
