'Hamilton' star sings a different tune but still sounds great
What is "Hamilton" up to these days? The talented Julius Thomas III, who starred as Alexander Hamilton in the national touring production of the mega-hit musical, is still performing and he gave us a sneak preview of his upcoming new show.

It's a tough time. You deserve to hear the star of Hamilton sing you Christmas songs.

Julius Thomas III was San Francisco's Hamilton in the BroadwaySF production at the Orpheum. Since the production closed down due to the pandemic in the Spring, Thomas has been cooking up a way to bring his voice back to the Bay Area. Now, he's preparing a Christmas concert you can watch from home.

"I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite holiday stories and holiday songs for the whole family," Thomas told ABC7 News anchor Reggie Aqui.

Thomas gave ABC7 News a sneak peek of what to expect at his concert. To hear his take on "I'll be Home for Christmas" and why he'll be including The Jackson 5 but not Destiny's Child (shade alert!) click on the clip above.

And to get tickets to see the concert on Saturday, December 19th at 3 p.m.
