This week's Music Monday has been switched out for Musical Monday in honor of the Tony Awards last night. Everything that opened the show for host James Corden was perfection and I'm here to relive it with you all.
The Artist: James Corden, the company of Broadway's Hamilton and the company of the Tony Awards
The Musical Event: The opening numbers of the 70th Annual Tony Awards
Why it’s been stuck in your head: Last night's Tony Awards (AKA the Hamilton Awards) showcased James Corden in a perfect way. While the show was dedicated to those who lost their lives in the Orlando massacre just that morning, it was clear that the attendees, presenters, and host did not have those people far from their thoughts. James Corden was able to perfectly blend the somber tone of the day with the spectacle that the Tonys usually provides for the Broadway community and those who love it.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you love Broadway as much as my cohost and I do, you don't want to miss this amazing Tony Award performance.
