And I would like to share with you
The most amazing songs.
Contemporary musicals like Hamilton and Six have cultivated a new audience and an even greater extension of the musical theatre community. I love contemporary musicals as well as the traditional musicals, and there are ten songs I love especially that I’d love to introduce to you (that you may never have heard of before).
I hope you’ll enjoy listening to them and be sure to leave a comment to let me know what songs you think are underappreciated!
