Tunes for Tuesday: Ain't Your Mama, by Jennifer Lopez

Admittedly, I've been a bit out of the loop, music-wise. Between the eye surgeries and hanging out at home with the kitchen remodel, my workouts have been sporadic at best and when I do plug in the iPod, I'm catching up on podcasts. But! My eyes are good, the kitchen's nearly done and I can get back to a regular routine again -- which means downloading a bunch more Rock My Run mixes and catching up on the gym's music mix.

Tunes for Tuesday: My Shot, by the Cast of Hamilton

The Broadway show Hamilton is super popular in our house. Have we seen it? No, but I bought the teenager the cast album and he has it memorized by now. So in honor of the show getting a record 16 Tony nominations today, here's a White House performance of My Shot.

... and here's the teenager practicing his part of the rap battle for his musical theater class:


This is the intersection of AP US History, musical theater class and a love of the #Hamilton cast recording.

Tunes for Tuesday: 'Hamilton' cast performs at the White House

Here's a double feature (because I couldn't find one video with both performances that was embeddable!). On Monday the cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton traveled to the White House to take part in a workshop and Q&A with DC-area high school students as well as perform a few songs from their show for the kids as well as President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Biden and other fancy dignitaries.
