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.
A song dedicated to the ‘March for our Lives’ movement.
This is for students and young leaders everywhere.

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.
