Cynthia Erivo Just Slayed A Beyoncé Song For #Ham4Ham

Cynthia is Bey.

Cynthia Erivo, Tony-winning Broadway superstar and generally beautiful human being, just performed a live rendition of Beyoncé’s “Sandcastles.”

We repeat: Cynthia Erivo, the personification of all things melodious and great, just sang a song from “Lemonade.” And somehow, the world hasn’t spun off its axis into some alternate reality where Erivo and Beyoncé are co-queens of the universe.

The cover was part of #Ham4Ham ― a series of live performances that take place outside of the Richard Rodgers Theatre, aka, the home of the musical “Hamilton.” The current “Color Purple” star stopped by to belt Bey’s slow jam to adoring fans, all the while rocking one of the best high-waisted ensembles we’ve ever seen.

And yes, as host Rory O’Malley correctly screams in the video above, Cynthia is the greatest vocal force on Broadway. Remember when she serenaded Misty Copeland with a rendition of George Gershwin’s “Summertime”?

Swoon.
