Actor John Krasinski wants to bring people some good news. 

And he did that Sunday — surprising a little girl over Zoom with a performance from the hit musical “Hamilton” featuring the original cast on his new YouTube series, “The Good News.” 

Krasinski told Aubrey, a 9-year-old girl who was supposed to see “Hamilton” for her birthday before it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, that he would fly her and her mom to New York to see the musical on Broadway once social distancing is over. 

But then the twist got even better. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda joined the call and performed the song “Alexander Hamilton” with Daveed Diggs, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry and Phillipa Soo.
