'Hamilton' star records excuse video for teen who missed exam
'Hamilton' star Lin-Manuel Miranda recorded an excuse video for 16-year-old Luke Stevens who missed his history exam.

A Broadway superstar recorded an epic excuse video for a teenager who missed their history exam.

"Miss Rosner this is Lin-Manuel Miranda, I'm sorry he can't be in your history class right now but he's with me," Lin-Manuel Miranda said. "We're gonna go over the Bill of Rights and anything you may be covering right now; we cover a lot of it in about two and a half hours of Hamilton but we're gonna go over it in specifics now, so this is not lost time. Thank you -- thank you for excusing him from class."

The 'Hamilton' star recorded the video message for 16-year-old Luke Stevens while attending an event in Atlanta.

The event was organized by Stevens' mom, Tamara Stevens, a local political activist.

His teacher later tweeted she was freaking out when she saw the video.
