John Krasinski Surprises Young Fan With All-Star Hamilton Performance Via Zoom
John Krasinski returned with the second episode of his YouTube show Some Good News last night and this time surprised a young fan by getting the original cast of Broadway's Hamilton to perform the song 'Alexander Hamilton' over Zoom.
Krasinski arranged the performance for a little girl called Aubrey who had planned to celebrate her ninth birthday with a trip to the theatre to see Hamilton - but sadly, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic the event was cancelled.
The Office star told her: "If you can't go to Hamilton, we're bringing Hamilton to you." Before sharing a virtual performance, featuring stars including Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs and Lin-Manuel Miranda who all joined in via Zoom - not bad eh?
Krasinski then promised to fly Aubrey out to Broadway later in the year so she could go and see the play.
The uplifting show sees Krasinski highlight all the good that is going on in the world, during the coronavirus crisis.
This week he praised a number of companies, sports teams and individuals that were offering up their services to make PPE for front line staff, before sharing other good news stories such as parents relishing home-schooling and those making efforts to feed the homeless and vulnerable in their area. All the feels.

Last week, Krasinski invited Steve Carell onto the show, where they chatted about The Office.
He also spoke to a young girl named Coco who recently finished her chemotherapy treatment for cancer and received a hero's welcome when she returned home, with a socially distanced parade in her street.
The feel-good show, ended with Krasinski saying: "I'm John Krasinski, and this is SGN, asking you to remember, no matter how tough life can get, there's always good in the world and we will see you next time. Good night."
