'Hamilton' cast performs for George H.W. Bush in his office
HOUSTON — Former President George H.W. Bush says "history never sounded so powerful."
The touring company of the Tony-winning musical "Hamilton" gave the Republican a special performance in his Houston office on Tuesday.
Bush tweeted it was a "complete joy to welcome the 'HamFam.'" The 93-year-old says he'll never forget it.
