Last year, Randy Kerber had the honor of creating a new arrangement of the iconic song "Over the Rainbow" for the HEARTbeats Foundation charity album "We'll Paint You a Rainbow." Randy Kerber's arrangement, written for full orchestra featuring vocalist Christine Brewer and cellist Lynn Harrell (co-founder of the HEARTbeats Foundation), was conducted by the legendary film composer John Williams at the historic Sony Picture Studios Scoring Stage, the very stage where Judy Garland first recorded "Over the Rainbow" back in 1938 for the beloved film "Wizard of Oz."

From ScoringSessions.com about the album:

"The album, Paint Me a Rainbow will be released in 2012 filled with new recordings of original and existing songs with the involvement of legendary artists, including Lynn Harrell, Placido Domingo, Joan Baez, Maroon5, Paul Simon, Sting, and many more.
