10 Moments That Celebrate Lin-Manuel Miranda Every Day

News   10 Moments That Celebrate Lin-Manuel Miranda Every Day
 
Happy Birthday to the incomparable Lin-Manuel Miranda! Not only is he an accomplished composer, lyricist, and performer, but he is well-known for his genuine enthusiasm for interacting with his fans. On Twitter, Lin-Manuel asked for no presents (and no cookies, which frankly, seems like a mistake), so we are celebrating his talented fans who are always celebrating him. Raise your glass.

1. “Blackout” Remix

Trey Curtis samples “Blackout” from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights in his gritty, electronic track. We have a feeling LMM and Alex Lacamoire would love the arranging of the sample, the strings, and hip hop beats.

2. Drama Kids Prepare for History Test

Thomas Sanders always makes hilarious vines, but this one is too true. Drama kids everywhere rejoice whenever they take a history tests and see questions about A. Ham.

3. “The Schuyler Sisters” Cover

Shannon Brielle flawlessly sings and raps every part as well as ~lays a sick beat~ with her beat boxing and other vocalizations in this “The Schuyler Sisters” cover. Can we please get a rap off between Shannon and Renee Elise Goldsberry, please?

4. Poor Peggy

Kathleen Cameron takes dub-smashing to a whole new level. She applies Hamilton lyrics to her life in ways that are funny but also pretty real. How does she think of them all?! There’s so many more where this dub-smash came from.

5. In The Heights Medley

While there’s nothing like the original arrangements of In the Heights, there’s something so beautiful about this stripped down, piano medley.

6. High School Musical + Hamilton Mash Up

The Disney - Hamilton mash-up we didn’t know we needed.

7. American Sign Language “Burn” Cover

This makes us wish the Spring Awakening and Hamilton casts would do a collaboration. LMM and Michael Arden are you listening?!

8. In The Heights - Hamilton Mash Up
