The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

HOUS­TON — For­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush says “history never sounded so pow­er­ful.”

The tour­ing com­pany of the Tony-win­ning mu­si­cal “Hamil­ton” gave the Repub­li­can a spe­cial per­for­mance in his Hous­ton of­fice on Tues­day.

Bush tweeted it was a “com­plete joy to wel­come the ‘HamFam.’ ” The 93-year-old says he’ll never for­get it.

“Hamil­ton” cre­ator Lin Manuel Mi­randa tweeted it was an honor.

The 41st U.S. pres­i­dent was re­leased from a hos­pi­tal ear­lier this month af­ter con­tract­ing an in­fec­tion. Bush was ad­mit­ted to the hos­pi­tal on April 22, one day af­ter the fu­neral for his 92year-old wife, Barbara.
