I’m glad that they’ve been covering tunes from the Grammy Award Winning Musical “Hamilton,” because I love seeing other people’s renditions of some of my favorite songs. Musicality is […]
It makes me feel like I actually know what I’m talking about when I beg people to jam stuff like “Hamilton” and then it ends up winning the Best Musical Theatre Album at the 2016 Grammy awards.
