The Tony winner for Dear Evan Hansen stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new album Sing to Me Instead.

Ben Platt visited Jimmy Kimmel Live this week to perform “Grow As We Go” from his new album, also taking the time to talk about his future plans—and love for Beyoncé.

The 25-year old Emmy, Grammy, and Tony winning performer released his first solo album Sing to Me Instead earlier this year, including several music videos. Watch Platt perform the song above.

Kimmel and the Dear Evan Hansen star also talked about his dreams for an Oscar, completing his EGOT. “I’m trying not to rush to it because then once that happens, it’s like OK, see you later,” said Platt. “I’m just trying to let it come to me,” he added, comparing it to waiting for a relationship to start naturally.
