'Hamilton' Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Song to Benefit Gun Control Campaign

'Hamilton' Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Song to Benefit Gun Control Campaign

A portion of the proceeds from the single will go to the March For Our Lives Initiative, which supports a demonstration taking place in Washington on 24 March demanding an end to gun violence and mass shootings in American schools. The march was organized by survivors of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman High School in Parklands, Fla. The production, arrangement, and orchestration was done by Alex Lacamoire, and is a mashup of Hamilton's "The Story of Tonight" and Dear Evan Hansen's "You Will Be Found". "Not just for themselves, but for all of us", Miranda said in a statement.

The two songs combine into the track "Found/Tonight", which is accompanied by a new music video, recorded at Atlantic Records' studios.

The Hamildrop for March is a duet called "Found Tonight" with Dear Evan Hansen's Ben Platt, bringing together two of the most popular leads of two of most popular musicals. Hamilton's "Story of Tonight" depicts the burgeoning revolutionaries on the cusp of fighting for America's independence reflecting on impact and legacy.

And the collaboration between the two musicals extends beyond Miranda and Platt.

In a series of tweets, Miranda thanked Dear Evan Hansen creators Benj Pasek and Justin Paul for their "immediate YES and moving mountains to be there". "I also cried", he added. It opened on Broadway in 2016 and won six Tony Awards.

Since Hamilton catapulted Miranda's fame, the performer and songwriter has come to use his platform to spread awareness and raise funds for different causes. That song was inspired by West Side Story's "Maria", and includes the names of all 78 towns in Puerto Rico.
