Broadway stars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt have been announced as special performers for March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The pair are scheduled to perform their recent collaboration "Found/Tonight," the latest in Miranda’s Hamildrops series.

The flagship March for Our Lives rally will take to the streets of Washington in protest of gun violence, with sister marches taking place all over the country. The event has been organized by survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. Prior to announcing the performance, Miranda shared that proceeds from the song "Found/Tonight" would benefit the March for Our Lives cause.

The Hamilton creator has been vocal on Twitter in support of the Parkland students.

Both he and Platt shared their excitement over performing for the benefit. 

Miranda and Platt join a star-studded list of celebrities who will perform at the rally, including Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, Common and Vic Mensa. D.C.’s March for Our Lives is one of 800 marches that will take place on March 24. The event will also stream live at noon ET on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube
