If you follow me on instagram you know that my kids and I have a serious case of Hamilaria. We’ve been smitten with Hamilton all year (I was lucky enough to see the show with the entire original cast right after it came out, back when tickets were “Normal Broadway Expensive” as opposed to “Hamilton-Obscene-Expensive.” It is such an incredible show, and we’ve had the soundtrack on repeat since then.
We’ve also made tributes:
And we’ve mourned losses:
And drawn pictures of our favorite characters.
We are just a smidge obsessed.
And today, we are giddy with anticipation of the new Hamilton Mixtape – an entire album of covers. Kelly Clarkson singing It’s Quiet Uptown, Ashanti (with JaRule!) singing Helpless, and Jimmy Fallon singing You’ll Be Back. I AM SO HERE FOR THIS.
