THE HOLDERNESS FAMILY: (Rapping) I am not throwing away this mask.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning I'm Noel King. "Hamilton" will be on Disney Plus this weekend. In time for the streaming release, The Holderness Family, who are known for their YouTube parodies, have made their own version, but they don't debate the Constitution.

KING: Their message - just agree, wear a tiny flippin' mask. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
