Watching Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. Singing ‘Ave Maria’ Will Soothe Your Soul

Depending on your political affiliation, today may have been a rough day. But regardless of whether you’re celebrating or mourning last night’s election results, Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. is here to soothe you with song. In this Facebook Live video for the New York Times, Odom Jr. sings two tunes off his upcoming Christmas album, and trust us: Even if you don’t like Christmas music or have a strict moratorium on keeping it shelved until the day after Thanksgiving, you should listen to him sing a few tracks right now. The emotional healing properties of Odom Jr.’s silken voice serenading you with “Ave Maria” and “Winter Song” should not be underestimated.
