On the first period of my first day of my freshman year my APGOPO teacher had this playing when we walked in and it made me open up to other people and, of course, get into this amazing musical, I'm so happy that I got to see this.

I hope these videos will remain on the Whitehouse. gov site after Trump takes office. They are a gift to everyone who can't afford or go see this incredible work of art in person and it would be a terrible loss if they were removed.

Setting aside the brilliance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's lyrics, his genius truly lies in his insight. My school History classes talked about the American Revolution in rather sterile terms, promoting the image of rich, old, White, colonial land owners with an air of sophistication, elegance, and civility. I never learned the Founding Father's stories. Miranda dug deeper, and what he found was Hip Hop. BRILLIANT!!!

By the way, it isn't in this video, but I love the musicial's repeated use of, "I'm not gonna throw away my shot," knowing that Hamilton was ultimately killed in a duel, while firing his own pistol up. He literally threw away his shot, and it cost him is life.

Lin is actually kinda similar to Hamilton. They are both very hardworking. And they started at the bottom and made their way to the top.

Yeah, while I can understand why this would be the song to sing in order to showcase his idea for the album, Lin-Manuel Miranda didn't have himself in mind when he created Aaron Burr's parts.

Guys , this was done in 2009 , 7 years before we got to see it on stage and in its full glory.People were laughing because the idea of turning the story of a founding father into a hip pop musical is a crazy idea, and we all know that Lin-Manuel Miranda executed it brilliantly in 2015.

This really is a brilliant example on to keep pushing froward your dreams. And god they laughed then but now, wow. I've never been so intrigued in American history before. And well that says as bit considering I'm Australian and want to specialize in British history. A thing I'm laughed at for.

I wonder if when he wrote this song/performed it here that he pictured himself being Alexander Hamilton. Probably not because I think this was before he thought of it being a whole musical, just a mixtape.

Guys, they're not laughing AT him. They laughed because the first Treasurer of the U.S being associated with hip hop would never normally cross your mind, so it's unique. And also he set them up to laugh because honestly , who wouldn't?
