The man behind the hit musical "Hamilton" announced on Monday, June 26th that he is raising money for the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition, named after the crowd-pleasing line from the show. But, there's a twist.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who recently discovered he would be inducted into the Walk of Fame, challenges fans not only to donate but to post videos singing parts of the musical. Using the hashtag #Ham4All, he took to Twitter, his go-to platform, and began by daring all four of the "Hamilton" companies -- as well as the original cast -- to post videos of themselves singing a part that was not theirs.

Those who donate and post videos then challenge others to do the same. A donation of at least $10 will enter folks in Miranda's latest Prizeo contest, the winner of which will get VIP tickets to see the "Hamilton" L.A. opening night performance, and the chance to attend the afterparty with Miranda himself. The stakes are high, but so is a number of fun participants seem to be having with the challenge.

Celebrities join in on the fun

Besides the stars of the musical, including Latina Broadway veterans Mandy Gonzalez and Karen Olivo (who coincidentally both worked with Miranda on his musical "In The Heights"), many other celebrities have already jumped onboard. It's no surprise that many of the celebrities who have already sung and donated are Latino, but stars of every race and ethnicity have been working for the cause.

TV writer Shonda Rhimes, comedian Ben Stiller, singer Kelly Clarkson, and actress Eva Longoria are just some of the big names that have accepted the challenge.

The cast of the Netflix series "One Day at a Time," an important show in terms of Latino representation, collectively posted a video singing/rapping the opening song from the musical. They then challenged the cast of another important show for Latinos, "Jane the Virgin." Jaime Camil, Justin Baldoni, and Gina Rodriguez herself have already completed the challenge individually.

There is a lot of love and support within the community:

If there's one thing Miranda is good at, it's bringing people together, especially for a noble cause.

So what is the coalition?

While the challenge is fun, the purpose is to raise money for the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. First and foremost, it is a part of the non-profit Hispanic Federation. But don't let the name fool you; it isn't just for the benefit of the Latino community. It is made up of twelve organizations across the country that work to help and empower immigrants, refugees, and asylees. Members of the coalition include the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Service, Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus, and Inc./Haitian Women of Miami.

The Coalition was launched just this year, but with the help of #Ham4All, it looks promising. The challenge is inspired by the fact that June is Immigration Heritage Month, and the L.A. production of "Hamilton" is quickly approaching, opening Wednesday, August 16th.

While Miranda has worked with Prizeo in the past to raise money using his last performance in New York, and the Chicago and San Francisco openings as an incentive, he claims that this contest is the biggest yet. Miranda has been on a retweeting spree since the contest began and given his Twitter history, there's no reason to believe he'll stop anytime soon.
