Alexander Hamilton!

I so rarely update this page, but this one deserves a mention.  I first played the Hamilton CDs in the car a couple of months ago. Immediately upon hearing the songs, Angelina was singing along. More importantly, she started to ask questions about the American Revolution and all the characters involved. She wanted to study history and learn more.

Then she wanted to sing. So she gathered a group of friends together to perform the opening number for her school's talent show.  They worked hard for a week, but mostly, they had fun rehearsing (which involved a lot of trampoline play time).

"Pride is not the word I'm looking for. There is so much more inside me now."

Here's the video of the performance.
