Hamilton cast members release "The Election of 2022" song

(NEW YORK, NY) -- Hamiltonin partnership with Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote, have released “The Election of 2022,” a lyric rewrite video for National Voter Registration Day promoting the importance of voting.  The song directs viewers to Hamilton’s Ham4Progress website, which includes When We All Vote’s tools and resources for people to understand what’s needed to vote in their state.

The video features cast members from the Hamilton Broadway company including Miguel Cervantes, Tamar Greene, Aubin Wise, Lauren Boyd, Shonica Gooden, Roddy Kennedy and Gabriella Sorrentino. The new lyrics are by Hamilton’s musical director, Ian Weinberger.

Hamilton’s previous Get Out the Vote initiatives have included working with VoteRiders & VoteForward, resulting in more than 7,000 Hamilton volunteers contacting over 340,000 voters through direct letter writing campaigns. 

Ham4Progress is a community highlighting social justice causes, a gathering place for meaningful discussion, and a platform for organizations Hamilton supports. Run by a diverse collective of Hamilton cast members and staff, this is a platform where Hamilton inspires its community, fans, and company members to action. 

Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now.  Featuring​ a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony​®​, Grammy​®​, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
