Showing off their firepower chemistry, Idina Menzel and Josh Groban unveil the piano ballad “Lullaby” off the star-studded collaborative album Singing You Home, exclusively on Billboard Thursday (Oct. 25).
The emotionally-charged track offers a sweet melody and the heartfelt lyrics, “Rush now baby, don’t you cry/ Rest your wings my butterfly/ Peace will come to you in time/ And I will sing this lullaby.” Menzel’s recognizable silky voice soars high in the slow-simmering ballad, as Groban’s deep tenor organically adds to the captivating duet. (The two are also currently on tour together.)
Singing You Home, a bilingual children’s album focused on benefiting organizations that aid families separated at the border, is a project headed by Laura Benanti that counts on support from Broadway and music heavyweights. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kristin Chenoweth and Ingrid Michaelson are among the many contributors, and the album features an array of children’s music including a few traditional Spanish songs.
The compilation is due out Friday (Oct. 26), with all proceeds going to RAICES and ASTEP.
