“I’ve long admired Pearl Jam’s music and commitment to advocacy — and their music has made an impact on me since I was a teenager,” Miranda said.

“I haven’t met them yet, but have wanted to for a long time. We thought it would be fun to meet in front of our fans, while raising awareness and resources to make sure we get out the vote for the Georgia runoff election," the Broadway star said.

Tickets for the livestreamed fundraiser, hosted by Georgia-born comedian Wayne Brady, are available with a minimum $10 donation.
