The show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, has launched a contest in support of the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition, challenging fans to donate to the charity and sing a snippet of Hamilton for a chance to win tickets to the L.A. premiere. Video submissions have been asked to include the hashtag #Ham4All.
So far, a number of stars have contributed their own donations and performances, including Ben Stiller, "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Office's Rainn Wilson, recent Hamilton cast addition Taran Killam, NBA star Steph Curry, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Melissa Fumero, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, the original American Idol Kelly Clarkson and TV showrunner extraordinaire Shonda Rhimes.
Killam and Stiller both nominated Josh Groban, though he's yet to take them up on it. Other celebrities with an open invite include HAIM, Stephanie Beatriz, Scott Foley, Olivia Munn and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Hamilton hits L.A. in August, and you can find full details about the contest here. See some of the star-studded entries below.
@stephencurry30 and I are collaborating with Lin-Manuel Miranda to raise money for a coalition of immigration organizations. We all feel strongly about supporting these important organizations fighting to protect immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers who want to make a better life for themselves and their families. The grand prize winner will join us and Lin-Manuel at the LA opening on August 16th. We think that this will be the biggest Hamilton sweepstakes yet, but we need your help… Head over to prizeo.com/Hamilton for more details. #HAM4ALL @oliviamunn @therock
