Watch original Hamilton cast perform Helpless with The Roots

What do you do when you can’t be in the room where it happens together? Well, you make it happen in all your individual rooms.

The original Broadway cast of Hamilton reunited — virtually, of course — to perform “Helpless” as part of Global Citizen’sGlobal Goal: Unite for Our Future concert special. Joining them wereJimmy FallonandThe Roots, who provided musical accompaniment with household instruments (and some regular instruments) for the romantic bop.

A filmed version ofHamiltonwill arrive on Disney+ on July 3, finally giving those who couldn’t score tickets (most of us, in other words) the opportunity to see the original cast perform the smash-hit musical. In the meantime, the Global Goalspecial will air Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, hosted byDwayne Johnsonand featuring performances byShakira,Coldplay,Jennifer Hudson,Miley Cyrus, and more.

You can watch the full performance of “Helpless” above.
