"What we got is love even when the sinners hate us / We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us / We sing out, we got the rhythm and the true on our side / We cut through the divide and we do it with pride," Miranda, 36, raps. "A generation of innovators enabled to patiently wait for change 'cause change is what they've been afraid of / the malevolence can wait, raise a level of debate, celebrate, elevate."

A day after the mass shooting in Orlando, Miranda used his acceptance speech at the Tony Awards to pay tribute to those slain. "Senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised, not one day," he declared. "We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall and light from dying embers remembrance that hope and love last forever. Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside."
