Unless you have been living a rock for the past five or six years, there is an almost impenetrable level of certainty that you have heard about Hamilton the musical at this current point in time. It is a Broadway show that received an unprecedented amount of press coverage from every corner of the globe, and when you go to see it you would realize that all of the hype was well deserved without a shadow of a doubt because suffice it to say that this is a show that has had a lot of effort put into it and has songs that would have been chart toppers even if they had been released independently.
As a result of the fact that this is the case, people that listen to Hamilton music are often really curious about the man that wrote this musical. He has become a bit of legendary figure because of his sudden rise to fame, and his name is Lin Manuel Miranda. He is the son of immigrants who wanted to write a musical about American history that would use a cast that reflects the demographic makeup of the States as they exist today.
Miranda has started to become a leading force in the world of music and he has begun making musicals that are going straight to cinemas as well. Watching anything that he has made is very likely going to result in you having a wonderful time. His singing voice is unmatched, but it is perhaps his songwriting skill that sets him apart from everyone else due to the reason that he manages to write that are both deep and evocative as well as catchy and fun.
