Lin-Manuel Miranda Pens New Song For 'In The Heights' Film


On this year's Oscars red carpet, Lin-Manuel Miranda revealed to Variety that he wrote a new song for the In The Heights film! He describes the new song; “It’s a summer jam… I just wanted to write a song where we get to hang with the characters a little longer and it'll be sung by some of the principal actors in the movie.” The song will play during the closing credits.
