The Obama Foundation's global summit wrapped up its second and final day on Wednesday night with a star-studded concert at the new Wintrust Arena.
As expected, Chance the Rapper, The National and Gloria Estefan all performed. But there were a few surprises along the way too, including an unexpected appearance by Nas (who was memorably introduced by Master of None's Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari).
But one of the most memorable music moments came when Hamilton creator—and "full-time" ambassador for Puerto Rico relief—Lin-Manuel Miranda joined Chance onstage, along with Chance's frequent collaborator Francis and the Lights, for a rendition of Hamilton's "Dear Theodosia."
You can watch the entire concert in the clip directly below. (It also includes Chance being joined onstage by the First Family.) The "Dear Theodosia" performance starts at around the 2:09:00 point. There's another video (via Stereogum), although of lesser quality, below, too.
It was a full day for Miranda in particular, who also stopped by the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to advocate for assistance in Puerto Rico and joined Chicago native Common earlier on Wednesday, at the Summit, where perhaps inevitably, an impromptu (and pretty impressive) freestyle broke out between the two.
