Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Platt release Hamilton/Dear Evan Hansen mash-up 'Found

The song can be purchased now, and a portion of proceeds will go to March For Our Lives Initiative.

The song was released at midnight on Monday and is No. 1 on the iTunes singles chart. The Hamilton-Dear Evan Hansen mashup is also available for free on streaming platforms like Spotify.

Its powerful message of solidarity seems to be shaping up to serve as an anthem for March For Our Lives, just ahead of nationwide marches which will take place on Saturday, March 24 to fight for gun control in the United States.

Miranda has been releasing "Hamilton"-related content each month in a series called Hamildrop".




While from fundamentally different shows set hundreds of years apart, the two songs grapple with adolescence and community.

The "Hamilton" song marks a moment when the young rebels of the American Revolution are reflecting on the potential of their contributions, collectively, to history. Miranda, Platt and Lacamoire are asserting a role for Broadway in supporting the youth-led movement for gun control that has exploded into prominence in the aftermath of the Parkland, Fla., massacre.

And the collaboration between the two musicals extends beyond Miranda and Platt. It opened on Broadway in 2016 and won six Tony Awards. Miranda and Platt have since left their shows for other projects.

This isn't the first time Miranda has used his celebrity to promote activism. That song was inspired by West Side Story's "Maria", and includes the names of all 78 towns in Puerto Rico.
