lin“Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda brought Broadway to tears with an emotional tribute to the victims of the Orlando massacre at the 70th Tony Awards on Sunday night.

While accepting the award for best original score, a grateful Miranda, the creator and star of the musical phenomenon, read a sonnet to the Beacon Theater audience in New York.

“When senseless acts of tragedy reminds us that nothing here is promised. Not one day,” he said in reference to the Orlando massacre. “This show is proof that history remembers, we live through times when hate and fear seem stronger, we rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer.”

He added: “Love is love is love is love is love, and love cannot be killed or swept aside. Fill the world with music, love and pride.”
