Little Lin Manuel is celebrating 38 years, for me this is amazing. Miranda is a composer, lyricist, playwright, and actor. This proud Puerto Rican created and starred in the Broadway musicals " In the Heights" "Hamilton" Co-wrote the songs for Disney's Moana soundtrack and is the co-star in the upcoming film Mary Poppins Returns. Miranda's awards include a Pulitzer Prize, three Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, a MacArthur Fellowship, and three Tony Awards.

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Lin Manuel Miranda, the author of Hamilton received a political infusion from his father, Luis A Miranda Jr, Managing Partner at MirRam Group. As News Director, I worked with Luis at TV 47 while he was a political correspondent for Telemundo, in our New Jersey studios. He has also served as a director at the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, held managerial positions at the Community Service Society, the NYC Department of Employment, the NYC Board of Education, and Aspira. In the 1980s Luis was a special advisor for Hispanic Affairs to Mayor Edward I. Koch and Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Luis And Lin-Manuel Miranda: One Heritage, Two Generations NBC News
