This Kid Gets Caught On Camera, Dancing And Rapping To One Of His Favorite Songs From ‘Hamilton’

At only 6 years old, Tristan Cordero has become one of the biggest little “Hamilton” fans around. According to his mom, Mariela Cordero, Tristan keeps a poster of Lin-Manuel Miranda in his room and has memorized almost every song from the famed hip-hop musical. Recently, Cordero caught her son on camera in full “Hamilton” mode. The video reached more than 2,000 retweets in just a short period of time, and it’s not hard to see why. So cute!

Here’s the clip of Tristan dancing and rapping along to every word of “Guns and Ships.”

Even though Tristan knows the “Hamilton” soundtrack like the back of his hand, “Guns and Ships” is his absolute favorite song, if you can’t tell by the video. Cordero tells mitú that this past August, Tristan had the opportunity to watch “Hamilton” on Broadway for the first time ever. He was thrilled and even more so when he was randomly selected to go backstage to meet the “Hamilton” cast.

Lin-Manuel Miranda even retweeted the video himself, giving him his ? of approval.

And Tristan isn’t the only one in the family who gets in the “Hamilton” spirit.

For Halloween last year, Tristan dressed up as Hamilton, while his mom, dad, and sister joined him as Lafayette, George Washington, and King George. Mariela tells mitú that what Tristan loves most about “Hamilton” is the music. We won’t be surprised if we see him on the Broadway stage someday!
