Video: Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande Sing ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ for Happy Hippie Foundation
Music Artist’s Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande have joined forces to re-make the hit song, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
Cyrus thanked Grande on Facebook on the Backyard Sessions page saying,
“Soooooo thankful for Ariana Grande for being a part of the #backyardsessions!! You’re the sweetest little #happyhippie bear-mouse ever! Loooooove you The Happy Hippie Foundation #HappyHippiePresents #dontdreamitsover”
The video is to benefit The Happy Hippie Foundation, Miley‘s new foundation to help homeless youth. Miley and Ariana looked adorable in their cute onesies. Miley’s onesie is a unicorn while Ariana’s is either a mouse or a bear. It appears to be a mouse but when Miley asked Grande, she didn’t know what she was wearing.
The video is super fun to watch, as we see the singers relaxed and acting naturally. Miley lost her place in the song, which she admitted to, because she was busy flirting.
The Happy Hippie Foundation is a charity created by Miley Cyrus, following the MTV Awards show last year when she sent a young man named Jesse on stage to accept an award on her behalf. Bringing awareness to homelessness he took the award and honored millions of runaways and homeless youth in the United States. Jesse made a plea to viewers to visit Miley’s Facebook page, to donate money to My Friend’s Place, the Los Angeles organization that first introduced Miley to Jesse that same week. Cyrus and Jesse raised more than $200,000 in 24 hours.
Fast forward to May 2015, Miley officially launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit that “rallies young people to fight injustice,” with a series of exclusive “Backyard Sessions” shot at her own house. Some of the performances are with Ariana Grande, Laura Jane Grace (the transgender lead singer of punk band, Against Me), Joan Jett and Melanie Sefka.
Cyrus is hoping the Facebook videos of the songs will prompt viewers to donate, and the funds will be used to help create digital support groups for vulnerable kids and their families—an attempt to help prevent some of the 40 percent of homeless youth who identify as LGBT from being rejected and running away in the first place.
Hopefully the digital support groups will become more and Miley will expand so that homeless people have a place to go or someone to speak to during their time of need.
