If you thought you were the only obsessive HamFan out there, think again. Scores of celebrities have been in the room where it happens, and now they’re singing the Hamilton soundtrack for a good cause. This week, Lin-Manuel Miranda has been orchestrating (and retweeting) the #Ham4All Challenge, and everyone from your favorite Broadway stars to A-list celebrities have performed reprises and then challenged two friends to do the same. So far there’s Jonathan Groff as Angelica, Tatiana Maslany doing quadruple duty and Josh Groban making you cry yet again. But that’s not all: You can try to blow us all away with your pipes too.
All you have to do to enter is make a donation and sing your own variation of the musical’s hit songs. As inspiration, check out the brand-new #Ham4Ham and instrumentals soundtrack. (Fine, you’re welcome to skip the singing part and just donate, but we know you don’t want to throw away your shot at rapping “Guns and Ships” into a hairbrush.)
We didn’t even mention the best part yet: By donating at least $10 to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a VIP trip for two to the Los Angeles opening night of the Hamilton tour on August 16. Hey, it’s probably easier than winning the ticket lottery.
