LISTEN: Lin-Manuel Miranda & Ben Platt Release New Song for March for Our Lives

March 19, 2018


Lin-Manuel Miranda is back with another Hamildrop, and this one combines two of our favorite Broadway songs for a special cause. In fact, he called on one of our favorite Broadway stars, Ben Platt, to help with the project.

Today’s release, which is titled “Found/Tonight,” is a combination of the song “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen and “Story of Tonight” from Hamilton.

"Even when the dark comes crashing through / When you need a friend to carry you / When you're broken on the ground / You will be found," Platt and Miranda sing in the collaboration, which was recorded on March 9.

"In the midst of their grief, they mobilized the youth of our nation and created a movement. This is their moment. Not just for themselves, but for all of us," Miranda said in a statement. "This song is my way of helping to raise funds and awareness for their efforts, and to say Thank You, and that we are with you so let’s keep fighting, together."

The pair released the track in the hopes of raising proceeds for the March for Our Lives initiative. The March For Our Lives is taking place on Saturday (March 24).

Miranda has been dropping a series of tracks for the Hamildrops project. He collaborated with Weird Al Yankovic last month to release “The Hamilton Polka.”
