I would never have imagined these two musicals meshed together but this collaboration is pure genius, Both Ben and Lin-Manuels"s voices blend in a brilliant, moving way, The arrangement is simply glorious. Broadway fans should be delighted with this gem, And the music supports a great cause.
As a fan of Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, AND Alex Lacamoire, I was intrigued by this mashup. Add in Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and I was sold, even if the profits weren't going to an excellent cause. I had zero expectations, because these two shows couldn't be more different if they tried, and I was blown away. Lacamoire's arrangement dovetails the two songs nicely into a cohesive ballad, and Platt's voice manages to blend nicely with Miranda's, when it could easily have overpowered.
Unbelievable! The voices of Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt just mesh together beautifully. And the mashup of the two songs, with a little of For Forever blended in, is amazing! The cause the song represents is so worthy of this beautiful production. I listen to it several times a day!
Lin Manuel Miranda collaborates with Ben Platt to produce a haunting musical event. Two songs interwoven into a a tapestry of sound and emotion. This is beautiful beyond hope. Buy a copy, be a a mensch.
Love the individual artists and their songs and cannot LOVE this collaboration more especially the purpose for which it was done. Tears were literally falling the first time I heard this great duet and mash-up of their songs..
