To all U.S. history teachers, your job is about to get a whole lot easier.
If you don’t already blast the Hamilton soundtrack everyday in your class take an L. For those who do, feast your ears on “#HAM4BEY,” a musical medley created by Michael Korte and arranged by Jared Jenkins that combines the record-breaking musical’s hits oh Hamilton with chart-topping hits of Queen Bey. Yes, this is real. Korte and Jenkins seamlessly blend hits like “Alexander Hamilton” with “Yoncé,” which becomes “6 Inch.” The mashup features a slew of tracks including “My Shot,” “The Story of Tonight” and “The Schuyler Sisters” blended with “Survivor,” and “Countdown” making for the most lit lesson on America’s founding father. If your students can recite all of the lyrics in the mix give them an immediate “A” for the rest of the semester.
Watch as performers India Carney, Vincint, Mariah Maxwell, Jej Millanes, Kelly Margareth Lee and Jamond McCoy get in formation and slay the 6 minute mashup below.
