In the fourth release of Lin-Manuel Miranda's #Hamildrop series, the Hamilton creator offered fans a blend of two of the most recent Tony-winning Best Musicals.
The mash-up arrangement of Hamilton’s “Story of Tonight” and Dear Evan Hansen’s “You Will Be Found” dropped at midnight March 19. The recording features vocals by both Miranda and fellow Tony winner Ben Platt, who originated the title role in Dear Evan Hansen. Listen to their duet “Found Tonight” in the music video above.

. Proceeds from downloads will go to March for Our Lives, the student-led movement focused on ending gun violence and mass shootings.
Platt exited the Broadway production of the Benj Pasek and Justin Paul musical in November, going on to sign a contract with Atlantic Records and board the upcoming film Love & Oatmeal.
The #Hamildrop series offers new Hamilton-inspired content every month through December. Last month, Weird Al Yankovic released “The Hamilton Polka” March 2 (though Miranda called it a “February 30” release, making “Found Tonight” the official March drop).
The monthly project launched in December with the Decemberists musicalizing cut lyrics from the 2016 Tony-winning Best Musical, which would have been sung by a Benjamin Franklin character.
