Watch Lea Michele and Darren Criss Sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” (VIDEO)
If we had it our way, Lea Michele and Darren Criss would sing every single song from now until eternity. The two Glee stars took the stage at the 19th Annual Taste For a Cure benefit Gala on April 25, 2014, in Beverly Hills, CA, helping raise more than $700,000 for UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center. Wish you were there to see them perform “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”? Your wish is our command.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Darren did his darndest to help raise money that night, making the crowd bid on a chance to see him and Lea — who both recently filmed a PSA for Big Brothers Big Sisters — perform the memorable Wizard of Oz ditty.
When a generous donor offered up $5,000 for the chance to hear these two talented thespians sing, they got up there and performed a stunning duet, with Darren playing the piano and helping out Lea with vocals.
Lea shared a snippet of the big number on her Instagram page, letting even those who weren’t able to attend hear the buttery performance she and her buddy belted out.
