At 9:40 in the morning, this video made my day.
I have an exam later at 6 o’ clock in the evening, but hearing Lin and Ben sing this amazing piece together is truly magical.
And apparently, this is for the March for Our Lives initiative, so let me just copy paste the caption here so you’d have the important links and to give credit to the amazing people behind this wonderful video.
