  • PowerSaver

    This is so much better than the original, Rihanna’s singing was like her claws on the chalkboard. there are obviously a lot of talented ppl who are not famous, and this makes me wonder how some other ppl got in the biz

    Great video. Great artists. Lin Manuel Miranda is brilliant! Did you see his HSM2 spoof? I wish he was still starring in “In The Heights”, because he was perfect in it! I can’t imagine anyone else playing Usnavi, but it looks like Kyle will bring a different energy to the role. Go see this tour!
