LATINO VOICES

Young Lin-Manuel Miranda Remixing Pop Songs As Salsa Hits Is Swoonworthy

Watch him dance to Destiny's Child, Britney Spears, N'SYNC and more!

Lin-Manuel Miranda once admitted that Marc Anthony is one of his “pop-culture dads,” and now he's shown fans a video that proves it. 

The Boricua genius gave his Twitter followers a gem from his college days on Monday, and shared a video of himself performing at the "Expresiones" Latino talent show during his junior year at Wesleyan University. He was 20 years old. 

The "Hamilton" creator and star was inspired to share the video as a way to join in on the yearly online tradition of sharing memes at then end of April of Justin Timberlake telling you "It's gonna be May."

As his talent, Miranda remixed well-known songs of the late '90s and early 2000s into Marc Anthony-style salsa hits, and he started with N'SYNC's "It's Gonna Be Me." The now 36-year-old star then quickly went on to do other classics like Britney Spears' "Oops, I Did It Again" and Destiny's Child's "Say My Name."

We think Marc Anthony would be proud! Check out Miranda's singing (and his Salsa moves) in the video below:
