The ladies looked absolutely incredible with Phillipa in a black jumpsuit with a white stripe down each leg, Renée in a striped jumpsuit with ruffled sleeves, and Jasmine kept it classic in a black jumpsuit with a v-neck. Love it! Their performance was nothing short of amazing. You could not help but be in awe of the girls’ amazing harmonies as they sang “America The Beautiful.” The ladies brought a feminist spin to the famous song. They added one extra word to the final lyric in the song. “And crown thy good with brotherhood – and sisterhood from sea to shining sea,” they sang. It was a powerful moment that the crowd really appreciated and cheered loudly for. You go, girls!
While all three of the actresses have moved onto other projects, they all reached the highest levels of fame in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. They starred as the Schuyler Sisters and their characters were based off the real sisters from Alexander Hamilton’s era. Phillipa played Eliza, who was Hamilton’s wife. While Renée was Angelica, the sister who secretly loved Hamilton and Jasmine portrayed Peggy. The three performed the hit “Schuyler Sisters” number in the first act of the musical.
