Lin-Manuel Miranda And His Family Recreate 'Sound Of Music' Scene In Video From Their Vacation

"When you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything!"

While he may be known for his performance in Broadway's Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda and his family recently took on a different musical during their family vacation in Austria. 

"The movie we saw the most, growing up, was The Sound of Music," Miranda explains to Ellen DeGeneres during an interview. "And my dad, in his own mind, is Maria von Trapp." So in Austria, his father "hired a film crew, and had us sing 'Do Re-Mi' in all the spots where they filmed the movie." 


The resulting footage, an epic tribute to the popular film, has since been uploaded to The Ellen Show's YouTube channel — much to our delight. 

So whether you're a Hamilton fan, a Sound of Music fan, or both, be sure to check out this beautiful, nostalgic home movie courtesy of Lin-Manuel Miranda himself.
