Father-Daughter Duet To 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'

Father-Daughter Duet To 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'

Check out this lovely father-daughter duet to the classic song, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’

“Somewhere over the rainbow way up high, and the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby, Oh somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true”

The singers in this video are Mat and Savanna Shaw. And this recording of their cover of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ can be found as a hidden bonus track on their album Stand By Me.

Mat starts off singing first in the music video, and he can be seen standing in front of the Ronald McDonald House in Utah. The text on the first slide of the video shares about what the Ronald McDonald House is all about.

“The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area is to surround families with the support they need to be near and care for their seriously ill or injured children,” the text reads.

As Mat is singing, there are pictures of families and staff from the Ronald McDonald House that flash by on the screen.

Then Savanna starts to sing the second verse of the song. Her voice is so beautiful! Later, the father and daughter are singing together, and their harmonies are just lovely.

In the caption of the YouTube video, Savanna shares about how special this song and organization is to her and her family.

“‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ is a song of hope for a better tomorrow. It teaches us that there is always a brighter tomorrow if we just believe! This song was the very first I ever learned,” Savanna shares. “I had this little pink princess CD player that I would sit by for hours in my room and listen to that song. It was such a joy to cover this song all these years later.”

She continues: “We recently had the chance to perform this song at an event supporting the Ronald McDonald Foundation. This is an amazing organization that surrounds families with the support they need to be near and care for their seriously ill or injured children. A few years ago, our family was blessed by their resources while my sister Pennie Jean needed to stay in the hospital for several weeks. They were literally a rainbow of hope during a difficult time. Be sure to check out the great work they do. We hope you enjoy ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’!”

What a talented, kind-hearted father-daughter duo! They did a beautiful job with this song, and it is wonderful to see them using their talents for such a great cause.
