Hamilton has been taking the world by storm.

Or more like taking over the world in general. Honestly? I would let Lin-Manuel Miranda be our benevolent world leader. I think we can unite under him.


Until that day comes, however, we have the excellent cast recording of Hamilton and a promise of a filmed performance of the original cast to let our hearts soar.

The popularity of Hamilton has parlayed into various service works with the cast of the show. Various schools and students have performed on the stage of the show with their #EduHam. In addition to this, some members of the cast have appeared on PBS as well.

Essentially, they are using the show to help educate and get interest in both history and the arts.

One PBS show that we all still love? Arthur.

Who doesn’t love the show about Arthur the Aardvark and his educational adventures with his friends?

Plus the show has an amazing and happy theme song. Like seriously, I think we can just transmit good vibes throughout the world with this tune. Thank you, Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers!

Well in continuing with Hamilton‘s respect and love for PBS programming, Anthony Ramos (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (Maria Reynolds and Margarita “Peggy” Schuyler Van Rensselaer) performed the theme for Arthur.

The Instagram post, which has the description of Arthur After Dark, was posted to Ramos’ Instagram. And it is pretty freaking amazing to listen to this mellow and jazzy rendition from two talented singers.

Pretty awesome, right?
