LISTEN: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt Release New Song to Benefit March for Our Lives

At midnight on Sunday, Broadway golden child Lin-Manuel Miranda and Grammy-winning singer Ben Platt released their latest #Hamildrop collaboration. A portion of proceeds from the song, called "Found/Tonight," will be donated to the March for Our Lives campaign for gun control.

The song's lyrics seem to reference the Parkland, Florida, school shooting and the burgeoning activism of student survivors. Platt described the song as a "gorgeous mashup" of "The Story of Tonight" from Hamilton and "You Will Be Found" from Dear Evan Hansen in an Instagram post announcing the drop, adding the hashtag #GunControlNow.

"We may not yet have reached our glory," Platt sings in the opening verse. "But I will gladly join the fight/And when our children tell their story, they'll tell the story of tonight."

"Found/Tonight" is the latest #Hamildrop, a yearlong project started in December that sees Miranda collaborating with different artists to release monthly Hamilton-inspired content. The ode to activism continues with both Platt and Miranda encouraging listeners to continue fighting against seemingly insurmountable odds. Both artists have been progressive voices within the entertainment industry.

"No matter what they tell you/Someone will coming running," they sing. "They'll take you home/Raise a glass to all of us/Tomorrow there'll be more of us/Telling the story of tonight/Out of the shadows."

With mushrooming social media followings and a string of high-profile television appearances, the Parkland, Florida, student survivors have emerged as the de facto leaders of the push for additional gun control legislation—and have been harassed mightily for it. Prominent conservative talking heads accused them of being "crisis actors," while others made more pointed attacks. Novice Republican politician Leslie Gibson, who had been running for a seat in Maine's House of Representatives, tweeted that 17-year-old survivor Emma Gonzalez was a "skinhead lesbian."

"There is nothing about this skinhead lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing that she has to say unless you're a frothing at the mouth moonbat," Gibson, who dropped out of the race earlier this month, tweeted.

Donald Trump Jr. also liked two tweets that pushed conspiracy theories about the teens, including one that suggested 17-year-old student David Hogg had been coached by his FBI agent father into appearing on CNN talk shows to blast President Donald Trump.

Despite the wave of abuse, the students remain resolute.

"We've had enough of thoughts and prayers," said student Delaney Tarr in a Tallahassee speech. "To every lawmaker out there: No longer can you take money from the NRA. No longer can you fly under the radar doing whatever it is that you want to do ... We are coming after every single one of you and demanding that you take action."
