THE NFL DRAFTS ORIGINAL HAMILTON CAST FOR SUPER BOWL

In a poignant and perhaps symbolic move, the NFL is reuniting some of the Original cast members from the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit Hamilton to sing "America the Beautiful" during pregame festivities at Super Bowl 51

Renee Elise Goldsberry, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Phillipa Soo, who starred as the Schuyler Sisters, will perform live prior to kickoff 2/5, before the Atlanta Falcons face the New England Patriots.  

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda acknowledged the news on Twitter with a great visual. 

The Hamilton players join Capitol Records Nashville's Luke Bryan, who is slated to perform the national anthem during the game's opening ceremony and Interscope's Lady Gaga, who will headline the halftime show.
