Yesterday, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dear Evan Hansen star Ben Platt released “Found Tonight”, a mash-up that mixes lyrics from songs from their respective musicals and will benefit the “March For Our Lives” student march for gun control taking place this Saturday.
The song shot to #1 on the iTunes singles chart on Monday, and appeared at #2 as of this posting.
I wanna thank the squads and producers at @DearEvanHansen and @HamiltonMusical, who've offered nothing but support, and everyone @AtlanticRecords, who scramble brilliantly when I change the plan, every month.

Thank you for your beautiful responses to #FoundTonight and for listening and downloading. I feel immeasurably lucky to get to support these inspiring kids and #MarchForOurLives. It’s a fight that is so long overdue. Here’s a photo from our first rehearsal. #GunControlNow pic.twitter.com/iCJ8A7dpYJ
