The Perfect Rap

The Grammy Awards got a little taste of Broadway this year AND they LOVED it.

Boricua playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda and crew appeared via satellite to show exactly why “Hamilton” is the hottest ticket on Broadway. The cast performed “Alexander Hamilton,” the lead number from the musical, which sets up the immigrant story of Hamilton – the guy on the $10 bill. Despite being in New York City, the energy from the performance was palpable all the way to Los Angeles, where the Staples Center audience watched in awe.

To cap things off, “Hamilton” won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Miranda, along with the rest of the cast, reappeared to accept the award, rapping his way through his speech.

During Pope Francis’ recent stop in Mexico City, the pontiff made a Valentine’s Day stop at Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez to visit sick children. That’s when 15-year-old cancer patient Alexia Garduño offered to sing “Ave Maria” for the pontiff. Get ready for #goosebumps.

At first, Pope Francis seemed a little hesitant to sit through an impromptu concert.

You know. It’s like when your little prima wants you to watch her practice her dance recital moves, but you want to go out.

But when she sang, the room went completely still.
