Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is joining Pearl Jam on December 16th, for Art And Activism - an online conversation about their artistic inspirations and why they use their microphones for activism. The event will also money to engage the Georgia Latino community in advance of the January 5th runoff election.
Ahead of the event, Lin-Manuel Miranda has shared a cover of ‘Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town’ by Pearl Jam - a band that he says “has made an impact on me since I was a teenager”.
Lin goes on to say
“I’ve long admired Pearl Jam’s music and commitment to advocacy – and their music has made an impact on me since I was a teenager. I haven’t met them yet, but have wanted to for a long time. We thought it would be fun to meet in front of our fans, while raising awareness and resources to make sure we get out the vote for the Georgia runoff election.”
