The latest “Hamildrop” is more than just a theater lover’s dream come true — it’s a Broadway mashup with a powerful message and a plan to make change.

Lin-Manuel Miranda teamed up with Tony winner Ben Platt for a collaboration of songs from both of their hit musicals, Hamilton’s “The Story of Tonight” and “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. The result, “Found/Tonight,” was released on Monday at midnight.

Platt and Miranda start out by swapping parts, with the 24-year-old Pitch Perfect actor singing the lyrics from “The Story of Tonight” before Miranda, 38, takes on a few lines from Dear Evan Hansen.

“Even when the dark comes crashing through/When you need a friend to carry you/When you’re broken on the ground/You will be found,” they sing together in the mashup arranged by Hamilton orchestrator Alex Lacamoire.

The song’s take on a new meaning in light of last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17, with both tunes encouraging listeners to persevere in the face of hardship.

A portion of the proceeds from “Found/Tonight” will go to the March for Our Lives, which is being held in Washington, D.C., on March 24 to protest gun violence.
