Broadway Royalty Sara Bareilles and Leslie Odom, Jr. Stun With Anti-Trump Song

Popstar-turned-Broadway composer Sara Bareilles and Hamilton Tony winner Leslie Odom, Jr. have teamed up to deliver a haunting election song from Obama's perspective.

When two of Broadway's biggest names team up to tear Trump apart, you'll want to listen up. NPR's This American Life commissioned pop star and Waitress on Broadway songstress Sara Bareilles to write a piece from Barack Obama's perspective on Trump and this election, and what she came up with is pretty chilling. Even better, Hamilton's original Aaron Burr and this year's Tony winner Leslie Odom, Jr. came on board to perform this masterpiece as gorgeously as you'd expect. Aptly titled "Seriously," this song includes hard-hitting lyrics, strings for days, and a message that'll have you nodding your head in agreement for all 3+ minutes.  Now, hit play and prepare to be amazed:

"Seriously?" indeed. Sara's nailed how we feel inside, and Leslie's brought it to life. We'd love to see more from these two as a team, but hopefully, it'll only be songs about how great the election went after November 8th.
