On Today Wednesday morning, Lin-Manuel Miranda unveiled the video for “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)” from The Hamilton Mixtape.
The song, featuring K’naan, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC (also known as The Night Of actor Riz Ahmed) and Residente, gives voice to perspectives of immigrants from a number of nationalities, and the visual representation is even more compelling.
The video, directed by Tomás Whitmore and executive produced by Robert Rodriguez and Miranda, highlights immigrants getting the job done—making American flags, working in factories, cleaning and washing dishes, etc.
The release coincides with a current sweepstakes in which Hamilton fans can win seats to the long-awaited opening of the Tony Award-winning show in Los Angeles, as well as a chance to meet Miranda and attend the star-studded after party. To enter, you must donate at least $10 to the Immigrants: We Get The Job Done Coalition, an alliance of immigrant-focused non-profits throughout the U.S.
Miranda has been promoting the contest with the #Ham4All challenge, in which fans make a donation and tweet a video of themselves singing their favorite Hamilton song. The challenge has already gained support from celebrities like Kelly Clarkson, Ben Stiller, Shonda Rhimes and Gina Rodriguez, who have also urged others to join in.
