The 2016 Hamilton mixtape invited musicians to remix songs from the musical's cast recording and now one of the tracks has its own music video. "Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)" is performed by K'naan, Residente, Riz MC (a.k.a. Rogue One's Riz Ahmed), and Snow Tha Product. And the video blends the song's powerful pro-immigrant message with equally evocative visuals.
The video is part of the #Ham4All challenge, which sprung up around a Prizeo competition Lin-Manuel Miranda is running to raise money for the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. For a $10 donation, fans can be entered to win VIP tickets to the opening night of Hamilton in Los Angeles. And Miranda is also encouraging entrants to upload a video of themselves singing a portion of the Hamilton cast recording and then challenge their friends to do the same.

Since then a whole bunch of celebrities have gotten in on the action too. For instance, young Beguiled actors Emma Howard, Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke uploaded an adorable "Schuyler Sisters" music video featuring cameos from Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning.
