Matthew Morrison, Gwyneth Paltrow Duet on ‘Over the Rainbow’
Last month, we told you that Gwyneth Paltrow would be collaborating with Matthew Morrison on ‘Over the Rainbow’ for his forthcoming solo album, and now a new clip of the song proves that the two ‘Glee‘ stars are able to make sweet music together on and off the set.
The new rendition gets a dainty treatment not unlike Israel Kamakawiwoʻole’s Hawaiian-inspired version of the ‘Wizard of Oz’ tune. Paltrow taps into her inner Holly Holiday and shows, once again, that she’s a solid duet partner for the 32-year-old star.
Morrison performed ‘Over the Rainbow’ with Mark Salling on the ‘Journey to Regionals’ episode of ‘Glee,’ as well as on stage during the 2010 Glee Live! In Concert! tour. According to Entertainment Weekly, the accomplished Broadway singer/actor also sang the song during his audition for the hit Fox series.
Morrison unveiled his first single, ‘Summer Rain,’ in February, and will embark on a full US tour in support of his debut album, beginning on June 18. ‘Over the Rainbow’ will be available on iTunes on April 12.
