Auli’i Cravalho Singing “How Far I’ll Go” Stole The Show At The Oscars

If you didn’t know who Auli’i Cravalho was before, you definitely know who she is now. Last night she teamed up with Lin-Manuel to sing a song from the their hit Disney movie ‘Moana’.

Did I mention that Auli’i is only 16? This girl took the stage like a damn pro and performed better than some seasoned performers I have seen. It was something out of this world, that’s for sure.

Hell she got hit in the head with a flag and didn’t even flinch!

Check out the performance below!

She also posted this photo on Twitter later in the night. How does a 16 year old top performing at the Oscars? Maybe one day she will be up there winning an Oscar, that would be something incredible.

I have on request, please don’t give this girl her own show on Nick or Disney, she deserves better.

Kelly Clarkson’s Song From The ‘Hamilton’ Mixtape Will Make You Really Emotional

Chills. That is really all that I can say. Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite female vocalists of all time. Her voice is just so hauntingly beautiful and her cover of this song? Oh my God, it is absolute perfection. I love the original from the actual musical ‘Hamilton’, but I am so ready for this ‘Hamilton’ mixtape, you have no idea.

Take a moment and listen to this gorgeous cover, and get read to cry.

In case you aren’t familiar with the ‘Hamilton’ musical, this song takes place after Alexander and Eliza’s son dies, and they are both in mourning. You should listen to the original too, but this cover? Crying all the tears right now.

Lin-Manuel Is Releasing The Hamilton Mixtape Featuring Nas, Usher, Sia, & More!

Yes, I am one of those people who will always tell you to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack and then talk about how it changed my life while making me love musicals more. Yes, that’s me. Hello.

Well today, Lin-Manuel announced that he is releasing a mixtape featuring an incredible amount of talented singers.

Check out the track list.

So, I have listened to this album on repeat for the past five months or so, I know every line, and I am ready for this. Here I can listen to all of the incredible songs but with new vocalists? Count me in!

The only other place I can picture Ashanti, Kelly Clarkson, and Busta Rhymes being on the same album would be a “Now That’s What I Call Music” album, right?

It will be available for preorder tomorrow and will officially go on sale December 2nd.

I am willing to wait for it, are you?

Man Crush Monday: Lin-Manuel Miranda

All summer I have been listening to one album, and I believe that a lot of other people are with me when I say that I am obsessed with the ‘Hamilton’ soundtrack. My god, it is absolute perfection and even though the show is sold out until 2018 or whatever, I will listen to it on repeat until I can see it live. In my opinion it is revolutionary, and who is behind it? This man right here, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the entire script after reading a book about Alexander Hamilton.

Lin-Manuel stepped down as the lead in ‘Hamilton’ over the summer but I am absolutely positive that we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Lin-Manuel is of course extremely handsome, but it is more than that with him. He is brilliant. That simple. Anyone who can put together an entire play, movie, musical, write an entire album, in my opinion is brilliant.

For the record, he is also really funny on Twitter which you have to appreciate and seems to always respond to fans. The best was when he put together songs from Les Mis and Jay-Z, I can see that being an interesting play!

Happy Monday and if you haven’t listened to the ‘Hamilton’ soundtrack, go and do it!

Who Should’ve Replaced Lin-Manuel Miranda In ‘Hamilton’

So the creative genius that is Lin-Manuel is leaving the Broadway hit ‘Hamilton’ to probably go and write another absolute Broadway smash. It’s obvious that this show will be around for a long time and he probably doesn’t want to be completely tied down, which is understandable.

It has been announced that his replacement will be his understudy, Javier Munoz.  Munoz will officially start on July 11th as the title character.

Now, I am glad that the understudy is able to make it to the stage but there are a few people that I would have loved to see take the stage as Lin-Manuel’s replacement, at least for a short period of time.

Taye Diggs

Taye Diggs can sing, really well. He was in ‘Rent’, he was also in ‘Hedwig’, both on Broadway. He has the resume and he isn’t so bad to look at.

Donald Glover

Whether you call him Donald or Childish Gambino, I think that we can all agree that he is by far one of the most talented men in the business. He can rap, he can act, and he is so damn humble about it.

Drake

Personally, I know that Drake is a good actor. He was great on Degrassi and he can rap. He could pull off ‘Hamilton’ for sure. Drake also has zero street credit, so he could be on Broadway no issue.

Justin Timberlake

JT because, why not? I mean he can sing, he can dance, and he is one of the best entertainers of our time. He will absolutely go down at one of the best. Truthfully I am surprised he hasn’t really shown a serious interest in theater yet.

J. Cole

J.Cole would absolutely be my first choice to take over the spot for Lin-Manuel, I highly doubt that he would do it. J. Cole is a serious rapper and I couldn’t imagine him on a Broadway stage wearing tights, but I think it would be awesome. Everything that J does, he puts his heart and soul into. That would absolutely be my dream.

Who did you hope would take Lin-Manuel’s place?
