The song, which was performed live by the students at O'Donnell's annual Building Dreams for Kids Gala in October, is available for digital download by clicking here.
"I know what it's liked to be saved by a school," said founder O'Donnell (Fiddler on the Roof, Seussical) in a statement. "By a Sondheim song. By a cast of people who understand that being different is your biggest strength in life. That's Rosie's Theater Kids."
Songwriters Jamail and Karr donated "Sing My Own Way" to RTKids, allowing all proceeds to support the non-profit organization.
RTKids is an arts organization dedicated to "enriching the lives of children through the arts. They serve students who otherwise not have the opportunity to experience theatre, positively changing the trajectory of their lives by providing comprehensive classes in music, dance, and drama; thoughtful mentoring; and structured academic guidance. Its goal is to inspire excellence, motivate learning, uplift the human spirit, build confidence, and spark a lifelong appreciation for the arts."
