The other day, I posted a video of Lin-Manuel Miranda singing a duet with Lea Salonga outside the theater of Hamilton to entertain the waiting crowd. I thought it would be appropriate to veer off in the Miranda direction after a few days in Salonga Land.
I've posted this video a while back, and even if you missed it there, you may way have seen it elsewhere. It's made the rounds -- because it's so wonderful. But I've watched it numerous time, so I figure even if you've seen it, it'll still be a joy seeing it again.
You may recall in the Miranda-Salonga video, she surprises him with a song that he had once written for a former girlfriend (who it turns out is now friends with Salonga). He appropriately is mortified, in part I assume because he's now married.
Which brings us to this video.
It's from his wedding that begins with a toast by his father-in-law. I'll say nothing more than that. Other than -- it's a joy.
