Xmas came early for “Hamilton” supporters.
Lin-Manuel Miranda published his last “Hamilton” tune as part of the HamilDrops show, and “One Last Time (44 re mix)” contains former President barackobama.
Over track, Obama recites a departure in George Washington’s farewell address. “Nevertheless, in reviewing the events of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it likely I could have committed many errors,” Obama is heard saying.
“I shall also carry with me the hope my state will watch them with sanity and after 45 years of my entire life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as I myself must soon be on the mansions of relaxation.”
“I anticipate with pleasing expectation that retreat in which I promise myself to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my own fellow-citizens, the benign influence of good laws under a completely absolutely free government, the ever-favorite object of my heart, and the joyful reward, as I hope, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers,” Obama states.
The former President has been an early endorser of both Miranda and his hit musical. The show’s cast performed at the WhiteHouse in 2016.
