There are few artists who can tell a story with their voices quite like Kelly Clarkson. And while we’ve admittedly never seen Hamilton, we were excited when we heard that Clarkson contributed a song to the Hamilton Mixtape, a collection of re-imagined songs from the Broadway show.
Well, the song has hit the Internet and caused people around the world to ugly cry, including Hamilton-creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s sister.
Don’t believe us? Listen to Clarkson’s take on “It’s Quiet Uptown”:
Spoiler alert, according to those who have seen the show, this song is sung by Hamilton’s sister after the title character’s son is killed in a duel. And…cue the ugly cry.
