Hamilton composer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and former Dear Evan Hansen front man Ben Platt are heading down to Washington, DC to show their support for the #MarchForOurLives initiative. The duo recently released a mash-up from their two shows called "Found/Tonight," taking "The Story of Tonight" and "You Will Be Found" and creating a powerful, modern-day protest song.
A portion of the proceeds from downloads and streams of the song will be donated to the #MarchForOurLives initiative, a movement to encourage common sense gun control legislation around the country.
The two tweeted about their appearance...
Unbelievably proud to say I get to march with @Lin_Manuel alongside the incredible students of #MarchForOurLives in DC on Saturday, and perform #FoundTonight. It’s been a privilege to follow their example and it’ll be a privilege to stand beside them. #GunControlNow pic.twitter.com/yUyyol8Z0D— Ben Platt (@BenSPLATT) March 22, 2018
