  • Hamilton Visits and Performs at the White House

President Obama and first Lady Michelle Obama host the cast of Hamilton at the White House.

The hottest sensation on Broadway visits the big house of the United States. That’s right! The highest grossing play on Broadway to date, Hamilton has been praised for their performance all across the country.

It is a must see for anyone who enjoys great music and concept. The play is about the life of Alexander Hamilton, the U.S. founding father and first U.S. treasury secretary and features a diverse cast who were all invited to the White House to meet President Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

They celebrated the visit with hashtag Ham4Bam. The President was excited to host the cast at the White House saying that it was the only thing he and former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney agreed on. 

The President and his family enjoyed a performance from the cast in which they performed the opening “Alexander Hamilton” song followed by “My Shot,” which Hamilton sings about his chance to make it.

President Obama then stepped out in The Rose Garden with the a Marine band drummer and Grammy-celebrated composer Lin-Manuel Miranda who was the creator of Hamilton.

He then asked Lin to rap off the cue card that he would be holding which included words like “Supreme Court,” “carbon footprint,” and “Obamacare”.

The rapper picked up the beat and sang on the spot as President Obama kept changing the cards. The song went something like; “He’s throwing up some words, I’m getting to say some freestyling that you never heard,” Miranda raps. “Constitution, the POTUS, I’m freestyling, you know this.

POTUS is holding up the signs I’m not done. This is the Oval Office, Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m there. It’s so much more intimidating than if it was square,” he observes. “Opportunity knocks, and I can’t stop. I’m here with the president and my pops. And yo the mic drops.” 

The performance was much appreciated by President Obama who claimed that the video of the rap video will go viral. The public was able to watch some of the performance online at Whitehouse.gov.
