Lin Manuel-Miranda To Take Over Empire State Building

The Empire State Building announced the completion of the entirely re-imagined Observatory Experience with the opening of its redesigned 80th floor.

To celebrate the unveiling, the Empire State Building will premiere a new music video starring Pulitzer-Prize winning actor, composer, and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda. Set to his love-letter to New York, "Cheering For Me Now," the video will feature a new music-to-light show designed by world-renowned lighting artist Marc Brickman and footage of Lin-Manuel exploring the all-new Observatory Experience.

The video will premiere on November 27, on CBS This Morning’s live broadcast and will be posted exclusively on the Empire State Building’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page.

Fans in New York can watch the music-to-light show live on the building that night at 8 p.m. while listening to the song on iHeartRadio Broadway.

Tickets can be pre-purchased online at or in real time on-site at kiosks located on the second and 86th floor. Stay connected on social via #ESBReimagined.
