Today is the 260th Birthday of the man we all know on the 10 dollar bill as ALEXANDER HAMILTON. On this same day 5 years ago, Lin-Manuel Miranda took center stage at Lincoln Center during their Great American Songbook concert series giving the audience a sneak preview of what would go on to become his now worldwide hit Hamilton: An American Musical.

This performance was from the concert presenting an early rendition of the fan favorite and the show’s anthem MY SHOT along with a future Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (while he was doing Memphis The Musical on Broadway).

Alexander Hamilton was born on this day in 1757. Five years ago today in a performance for Lincoln Center?s American Songbook, Lin-Manuel Miranda presented 12 songs from a new project ?The Hamilton Mixtape? that formed the basis of the phenomenal Broadway hit, Hamilton: An American Musical. Here?s one of the musical?s signature songs, ?My Shot,? recorded in front of a live audience in its premiere performance at the Appel Room. ?My Shot? is one of the tracks on the just-released compilation, also called ?The Hamilton Mixtape,? of covers of some 20 songs by a Who?s Who of musical artists.
