Currently on tour as Aaron Burr in the national tour of Hamilton, two-time Tony nominee Joshua Henry revealed to The Wrap the next tour he really wants to be on: Bruno Mars'.

Henry is a huge fan of the four-time Grammy-winning artist. “They’re like the new Earth, Wind & Fire,” Henry said. “Best concert I’ve ever seen.”

Henry made his appeal official by singing a bit from Mars' hit record. “I play guitar; I can sing a little bit. I’m just letting you know,” he said. “I got you, put me in the back.” Watch the video, in which Henry also impersonates Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, below:

Henry, who originated the role of Aaron Burr in the Chicago engagement of Hamilton prior to going on tour, was most recently on Broadway in Shuffle Along... in 2016. Prior to that, he starred opposite Sutton Foster in Violet. His additional Broadway credits include Bring It On, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, American Idiot, The Scottsboro Boys (for which he earned a Tony nomination), and In The Heights.
