Subscribe for more official content from Ben Platt:
Fans worldwide fell head over heels for Ben Platt during his Tony® Award-winning turn in the title role of Dear Evan Hansen and on-screen in films such as the Pitch Perfect franchise. As the vocalist, actor, and performer sang life into a host of nuanced and fascinating characters, audiences embraced his voice wholeheartedly. By dusting off the piano, picking up a pen, and singing his own truth straight from the heart, he shared another side of himself as a solo artist.
Ben achieved superstar status as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen, originating the lead role. The New York Times lauded him as a “breakout star,” and he went on to receive the 2017 Tony® Award for “Best Actor in a Musical.” Other honors included “Best Musical Theater Album” at the 2018 GRAMMY® Awards for the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen, “Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program” at the Daytime EMMY® Awards for a cast performance of “You Will Be Found” on The Today Show, and more. Not to mention, he joined forces with Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda to craft a mash-up of “The Story of Tonight” and “You Will Be Found,” benefiting the “March for Our Lives” anti-gun violence movement.
Signed to Atlantic Records by Chairman and C.E.O. Craig Kallman and President of A&R Pete Ganbarg, he explored his formative influences, ranging from timeless singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Carole King to legendary crooners like Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles, and Stevie Wonder. As a result, the music delivers confessional lyricism by way of soulful intimacy as part of one cohesive narrative on his 2019 full-length debut, Sing To Me Instead. The 12-track album, which was primarily produced by Jenn Decilveo, chronicles the highs and lows of a transformative relationship. Showcasing his story, Ben penned several songs solo and co-wrote the remainder of material alongside the likes of Ben Abraham, Eg White, Nate Cyphert, Michael Pollack, and more.

    His voice is unreal. But no matter what he sings all I hear is Evan Hansen. Doesn’t matter who else does that role, it will always be his.

    It took me some time to gather the courage to finally come hear his song and I'm amazed, it's even better than I thought it'd be. The lyrics, the actors, Ben himself, everything is so beautiful and the stories were so different but all of them conveyed the song's message. I'm in love with this song and will keep on supporting Ben's works.

    I just started listening to your music recently after becoming obsessed with the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack, and let me tell you, so far I have not been disappointed! A lot of the songs are very relatable or cover issues that I have struggled with. This song is so beautiful to me, as I am someone who is terrified of the far future and getting old, and the symbolism of the video is absolutely amazing!

    "Will I get to know myself in the place I am?" I really needed that, Ben. The last year had me really struggling. Like, it was bad. I thought I was never going to be okay with where I was in life, but, I'm starting to think I can.

    Why does this only have 600k views? The vocals are amazing, the visual is amazing, and the message is incredible! Yet songs like 7 Rings (no hate on sister Ariana, she’s truly a queen) have over millions of views.

    I love you, Ben. Thank you for existing.

  • Em

    If Disney ever casts for a Hunchback of Notre Dame live action, I hope Ben gets considered for Quasimodo. He has such a vulnerable side to his voice and his vibrato is perfect for the character.
