Let this Beyoncé-Hamilton mash-up make your day
'Hamilton' playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda is very impressed
The mash-up of the year is here and it's a compilation of some of Beyoncé's and Broadway musical Hamilton's best hits hence the name #HAM4BEY. The 7-minute clip sees singers Jej Millanes, Jamond McCoy, Vincint, India Carney, Mariah Maxwell, and Kelly Margareth Lee belting the lyrics to Alexander Hamilton, Yoncé, 6 Inch, My Shot, The Story of Tonight, Survivor, Countdown and many more. You can thank Michael Korte and Jared Jenkins for the awesome medley.
"The inspiration was bred from fantasy – I wanted to do the impossible, selfishly combine two of my favourite things, Queen Bey and King Ham," Michael told Mashable. "The video is so important NOW as it is 7 minutes of soul-hugging joy and an unapologetic celebration of diversity in a time where many are questioning what the future holds."
Even Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the music, lyrics and book for Hamilton, has given the mash-up his stamp of approval.
THIS lives at the intersection of my interests. https://t.co/NRep3vHVrl— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) November 22, 2016
