Times may be hard, but there is still joy to be found, even after a long week. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a moment of emotional release. Welcome to Playbill's Feel Good Friday feature.
Hamilton's Tamar Greene was preparing for a concert in Syracuse earlier this week when inspiration struck. Greene, who currently stars as George Washington in the megahit musical, became a father this past June to a beautiful and bright eyed son, Amari-Josiah.
While rehearsing the song "Wheels of a Dream" from Ragtime, Greene swept his three month old son into his arms, performing the tender promise song to the cooingly appreciative infant as his wife, The Phantom of the Opera alum Lindsay Roberts Greene, took a brief video of the pair.
The video has since gone viral, with many celebrating the earnest love between the pair. Tony winner Donna Murphy described the moment as "beautiful and glorious", Kristin Chenoweth declared the video tear-inducing and "gorgeous," and Rachel Bay Jones underlined the beauty of his son's face watching with rapt attention. Tony nominee Joshua Henry said that the video was "too much for words," Kate Rockwell expressed that it left her heart "exploded," and EGOT winner Viola Davis shared the video with the caption "What a beautiful gift. Beautiful. This took my breath away."
Check out video of the tender moment above, and check back next Friday for another feel good feature.
