Candice Glover Sings 'Somewhere' from West Side Story: Nails It (Video)
All I can say is watch Candice Glover, listen to her sing "Somewhere" from West Side Story. I'm going to iTunes for my copy.
Here are a few other renditions of this song. First and possibly most well-known is Barbra Streisand's performance, followed by Aretha Franklin's soulful jazz version, which far fewer people have heard. More recent is Josh Grobin and Charlotte Church's duet (the song was originally a duet), and then Lea Michelle and Idina Menzel version from Glee.

Here are older versions. The duet from the 1961 movie is what made more people in American know the song because most folks did not get to Broadway to see the original cast.
