” Casey & I have always wanted to record our own version of this Beatles song. It’s lyrics ring true today in America… and all over the world. Here’s to our hopes for this country and liberty and justice for all.” – Haley Reinhart.
“Free as a Bird is a song originally written and recorded in 1977 as a home demo by John Lennon, formerly of the Beatles. In 1995, 25 years after their break-up and 15 years after Lennon was murdered, the band released a studio version incorporating contributions from his surviving bandmates Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.”

In a recent interview, Haley said that she wanted to make sure fans will be able to get refunds before any tour announcements can be made due to the Worldwide pandemic.
Haley made the announcement today on her social media:
“I’m super bummed to announce that my U.S. tour has been CANCELLED due to the pandemic. Best believe I’ll get my booty back out there ASAP. I know most artists are going through the same thing and I feel for all of ’em…and, of course, I feel for all of the FANS!!! I want to ensure that those who have already purchased tickets will get a full refund.
If you purchased online, you should receive your money back in the next few days. Anyone with questions about their refund can reach out directly to the point of purchase. Anybody willing can certainly donate their purchase to the venues that are also hurting, but that is entirely up to you. Thank you to everyone that planned on coming to see me and the boys tear it up on stage!!! I am eternally grateful for your support. Thank you for listening to all the music that my soul expresses into song. Please continue to listen to your favorite artists, be well, and love each other..Until next time. X“
Haley recently released a new single, her cover of Janis Joplin’s iconic tune, “Piece of My Heart”. A song she performed on Idol, Piece of My Heart is a long time family favorite often performed by her Mom, Patti, with their band Midnight and Harry, Haley’s Dad, on guitar. Harry and Patti are on Haley’s new single, recording their parts in Chicago and Haley producing the single in LA.
“This song and I have history. At this point in my life, it actually feels like it has a piece of my heart haha… I’ve grown up listening to my Mom bring the house down singing this with her powerful vocals, and my dad shredding guitar right next to her… My parents and their band “Midnight” have always picked the most quintessential yet eclectic songs to perform that define classic rock. Piece of My Heart takes me right back home with them in Chicago. I also chose to perform it live on American Idol when I was on the show, which allowed me to showcase my rock n roll roots. These days, I perform it with my own band on tour and also with rock legends, such as Robby Krieger from The Doors. I can’t escape this song no matter where I go! 😉”
Haley recently appeared on Lance Bass’ podcast to promote and perform “Piece of My Heart” and “Creep” and to sing Happy Birthday to the former NSYNC member:
“Piece of My Heart” is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all streaming services.
