Watch This Epic ‘Hamilton’ & Beyoncé Mash-Up #Ham4Bey


The Hamilton musical has been in the news once again, thanks to a Twitter beef with Donald Trump, but this is much more enjoyable than thinking of that nonsense.

Los Angeles based artist Michael Korte came up with the idea for #Ham4Bey, a mash-up of songs from the Broadway smash with classic Beyoncé tracks. The seven-minute performance features songs such as “Alexander Hamilton,” “Partition,” “Helpless,” “6 Inch,” “Crazy in Love,” “Wait for It,” “Dangerously in Love,” “My Shot” “Survivor,” “Guns and Ships,” “Irreplaceable,” “The Story of Tonight,” “Countdown” and more.

Created by Korte and arranged by Jared Jenkins, the medley is performed by a group of powerful singers and rappers including India Carney, Vincint, Mariah Maxwell, Jej Millanes, Kelly Margareth Lee and Jamond McCoy.
