FOUND TONIGHT

HamilDrop: Ben Platt & Lin Manuel Miranda Mashup “Found Tonight”

FOR THE KIDS

Found Tonight with Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and all of Troupe 10036

I’m an ardent fan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an amazing talent.

His Puerto Rican roots make it even more significant for me.

He has shown immense interest in social causes.

Benjamin Schiff Platt (born September 24, 1993) is an American actor and singer known for originating the role of the title character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, a performance for which he has won numerous awards.

Here you have two amazing talents joined for a common cause for the future of the children of this nation.

The heart-stopping anthem released on Monday,  March 19, by Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt to celebrate the “March For Our Lives” gun violence prevention actions this weekend needs no introduction, only some background.

The three-minute song, “Found Tonight,” mashes up Miranda’s “Story Of Tonight” from his smash musical “Hamilton” and the song “You Will Be Found,” from Platt’s star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This means the song draws from one story about teenage revolutionaries, and another about teens triumphing over despair.

The song begins with a rewritten line from “Hamilton” – instead of “we may not live to sing our glory,”

Platt sings, “we may not yet have reached our glory.”

All the proceeds from downloads of the song go to “March For Our Lives,” a gun violence prevention demonstration that will take place on March 24 in Washington DC.

Platt’s extraordinary gift for vulnerability and vocal sublimity are on display here, as is Miranda’s once-in-a-generation passion.

#HamiltonCast …. “To VP-elect Pence …. Message on behalf of ALL of us …. “!!

~~November 19, 2016~~ 

REPRESENT ALL OF US

We all should know, by now, what HAMILTON is.

It’s a totally successful Broadway show which made history with the number of Tony nominations and wins it has received.

Notice Mr. Donald’s reaction to the message delivered by the cast!

How petty, insignificant and unreal can he be?

Harassment? Apology? Why?

There was none of that!

Can’t VP-elec Pence defend himself …

(if there was a need for such defense?)

Vice-president elect Mike Pence made a surprise visit to watch the award-winning Broadway show Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre Friday night, November 18, and received a loud chorus of boos from the audience as he made way to his seat.

At the conclusion of the show, cast members addressed Pence’s appearance – as a group locked in hand-to-hand – behind Brandon Victor Dixon who delivered the message noted above.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Sonnet/Speech …. “Love is Love is Love is Love …. “!!


Ham

~~June 13, 2016~~ 

TONY AWARDS 2016

On Sunday, June 12, when Mr. Miranda accepted his award for best score for “Hamilton” at the Tony Awards, his second Tony win in this category, he said he was too old to freestyle.

So he wrote a sonnet instead, addressing his love for his wife, Vanessa Nadal, as well as the shooting massacre that left 50 people dead early Sunday in Orlando, Fla.

RBLine

My wife’s the reason anything gets done
She nudges me towards promise by degrees
She is a perfect symphony of one
Our son is her most beautiful reprise.
We chase the melodies that seem to find us
Until they’re finished songs and start to play
When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
That nothing here is promised, not one day.
This show is proof that history remembers
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.
I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story
Now fill the world with music, love and pride.

~Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Sonnet/Speech from the 2016 Tonys~

~~Published on Jun 12, 2016~~

God bless you, Lin-Manuel. Pray for Orlando.Pray for an end to hate in all its twisted forms. And most importantly, pray for love.

I haven’t been fortunate enough to see Lin-Manuel in Hamilton (and I’m sure now I never will)… But the first time I saw him interviewed, I became a huge fan. And my love for him grows more and more with every public statement he makes.
Passion for your art is a rare, beautiful, and precious thing. I’ve never seen anyone exude passion — and COMPASSION — as much as Lin-Manuel does.

This sonnet is (rightfully) getting worldwide attention, but you can find the same humanity throughout his work, and his life.
We so rarely reward art in its purest, most authentic form. For that reason alone, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s well-deserved success feels like a victory for artistic souls everywhere. I hope he never stops creating, and inspiring, and challenging us to do better.

Thanks for reading this far. Thanks for the upvotes and comments. Please keep the discussion civil. Above all, take care of each other.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
