Hamilton scribe and star Lin-Manuel Miranda initiated an online challenge on Monday that has fans (including some famous ones) singing their favorite songs from the Broadway smash — and all for a great cause, of course.
Miranda, in partnership with Prizeo for Immigration Heritage Month, has challenged participants to sing a song from Hamilton, post it online with the hashtag #Ham4All, and donate to Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. A $10 donation gets you the chance to win two VIP tickets to Hamilton’s opening night in Los Angeles on Aug. 16 (though, let’s be honest: most of the stars who have participated could probably snag VIP tickets on their own).
The challenge continues as Miranda debuted the video for the Hamilton Mixtape track “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done).” Rogue One actor Riz Ahmed (as Riz MC) joined K’naan, Snow Tha Product, and Residente of Calle 13 as a featured performer.
Taking him up on the offer thus far are Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, Ben Stiller, Kelly Clarkson, Hamilton alum Taran Killam (who, er, had a little trouble with lyrics even though he once starred in the show), Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez, the cast of Broadway’s Come From Away, and more. Check out some of our favorite videos below — and of course, if you’re so inclined, don’t forget to join in on the fun.
