The composer described the amazing moment he shared the song with his Hamilton cohorts, saying, "I got a screening together for the Hamilton cast and crew, so it was really fun, because we just burst into cheers."
In December, Abrams appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he revealed how the songwriting process between him and Miranda got underway.
