Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Raising Money For The March For Our Lives Organization With A Benefit Song

This mashup of two Broadway hits is amazing.

Lin-Manuel Miranda knows how to use music to break down barriers and activate social good for causes close to him. His latest project, “Found Tonight” with Ben Platt is raising money and awareness for the March for Our Lives happening on March 24. Several hundred sister marches have sprung up across the country to coincide with the main march in Washington.

According to CNN, the song was created by Tony-winning orchestrator Alex Lacamoire who has won Tony awards for his work on “Hamilton” and “Dear Evan Hansen.” Platt was part of the cast of “Dear Evan Hansen.” The song, titled “Found Tonight,” is a mash-up of “The Story of Tonight” from “Hamilton” and “You Will Be Found” from “Dear Evan Hansen.”

A portion of the proceeds of the song are going to be donated to the March for Our Lives organization. The March for Our Lives organization pushing for gun reform to make school shootings a thing of the past. Students of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school that killed 17 people started the organization.

Miranda has used music to change the way people think about history with “Hamilton.” The show became a cultural phenomenon because of the way he was able to use hip hop and people of color to tell the story of America’s founding. Last year, Miranda also used music to bring attentiona nd musch needed financial relief to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. “Almost Like Praying” took all the names of Puerto Rico’s cities and towns and turned them into a song to raise money for the island.
