My Favorite Things: December 2015

It’s December!!!  It’s time for sweater weather, hot chocolate, and watching holiday movies!  But before that, it’s time to jump back on my favorite things for Raisa’s and Eirene’s link-up 😀

Hamilton the Musical

I’ve been a fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s work after I listened to the ‘In the Heights’ and got the chance to see it live a while back ago.  Now, Miranda is back with a fresh new musical about one of the founding fathers of America- Alexander Hamilton.

I listened to the soundtrack for Hamilton the Musical and I am HOOKED!  The mix of broadway, hip-hop, and R&B is just genius.  The music is so catchy and full of energy.  I can only imagine what it would be like to see the show live.  And despite the story in the beginnings of America, the color-blind casting also just really makes me happy :’D  As Lin-Manuel Miranda explained, “This is a story about America then, told by America now.  It looks like America now.”

Highlights: King George’s break up song with America, “You’ll Be Back” and Thomas Jefferson’s “Whaaaaaaat”
