Lin-Manuel Miranda is Broadway’s King – bad ass and an honor for me to sing and rap the music he’s created for our movie. Creator and star of HAMILTON and IN THE HEIGHTS – as a composer and lyricist it’s been an unreal “Master Class” for me to witness and learn. I’m just trying to keep up?. I have a feeling our animated musical is gonna be insanely dope.#Disney #MOANA #DontSleepOnMySpitSkills #NOV2016
