The great Lin-Manuel Miranda has met another fan of his hit score from the Disney movie Encanto, world-renowned pianist, Lang Lang.
Earlier today, Lin posted a clip of the acclaimed musician putting his own spin on his hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”
Lin wrote of the video, “I was lucky enough to meet @langlangpiano in early March this year. We were in a room with a piano, and he said, ‘Can I play you something?’ , then it happened. He made “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” sound like I wrote it over cocktails with George Gershwin. I was the blown up emoji for over 4 minutes. His version of the song is available to stream now and I’m very grateful to him. Enjoy Rhapsody Chez Bruno ❤️❤️❤️”
