Corey Hawkins Wants to Make It Easier for the Next Kid

In 2017, actor Corey Hawkins was filming a movie in Toronto when he got a call from the producers of the U. S. Open. The singer they had booked to perform at the start of the men's singles final had fallen through—would Hawkins like to do it? "I was like, 'So, you all want me to do what?'" he recalls. "They were like, 'Sing "God Bless America" while the planes fly over.' I'm like, 'Okay.'" Within twenty-four hours, on September 10, Hawkins was at Arthur Ashe Stadium, in Queens, belting his heart out. He didn't know it at the time, but among the 23,000 people in the stands sat Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Hawkins's performance was an informal audition for the film adaptation of the playwright's breakout musical, In the Heights.
