Hamilton’s Schuyler Sisters Just Added the Word ‘Sisterhood’ to America the Beautiful


To kick off Super Bowl LI, Hamilton’s Schuyler Sisters (Phillipa Soo, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Jasmine Cephas Jones) performed a gorgeous a cappella rendition of “America the Beautiful.” Their flawless harmonies are sure to hit that happy place in your Hamilton-loving heart, and no one will blame you if you feel the need to watch the whole thing on repeat for, let’s say, ever.

But just slaying the song itself isn’t enough. These three took it upon themselves to include women in the sequel, making a slight (and long-needed) addition to one specific lyric. When singing about crowning the country’s good with brotherhood, they slipped in a lilting “and sisterhood” to finish out the sentiment.

Can we all just decide to make this a permanent addition to the song?
