To help celebrate the GRAMMYs, twenty-one kids from the Newtown Children’s Choir will sing Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” on E!’s Live From the Red Carpet show.

The choir, who will be performing via satellite from their homestate, will follow-up their performance with an interview with Ryan Seacrest.

The Newtown Music Project, which is made up of kids from the Connecticut town, recently recorded  “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” with Ingrid Michaelson, in tribute to the lives lost in last year’s horrific school shooting.

Proceeds from the songs available on Amazon and iTunes, will go to Newtown Youth Academy and United Way of Western Connecticut.

Maybe Carly Rae, who’s up for two awards–Song Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance–that night, will even give the kids a call to wish them good luck.

Watch the GRAMMYs, featuring performances from fun., Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, this Sunday on CBS.
