The song also features vocals from Tony nominee Christopher Jackson, who played Washington in “Hamilton.” The track was produced by Grammy-winning gospel singer BeBe Winans and Tony and Grammy winner Alex Lacamoire.

Miranda performed his song “Alexander Hamilton” at the White House in 2009 when Obama was in office. He went on to write “Hamilton,” which hit Broadway in 2015 and became a cultural phenomenon, winning 11 Tonys, a Pulitzer Prize and a Kennedy Center Honor.
