In honor of Valentine’s Day the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen released a very touching video this afternoon. Boyfriends Ben Levi Ross and Taylor Trensch, who have both played the title role in the musical, performed a special rendition of “Only Us”, a love ballad from the show.

Ross went on to write about the video on his Instagram story. “Hopefully this video means something to the kids who are LGBTQ+ and don’t feel comfortable or safe enough to celebrate Valentine’s Day with their crush out in public. Hopefully this video shows that to be on Broadway you don’t have to change a single thing about your identity.” Ross and Trensch are accompanied in the video by orchestrator Alex Lacamoirepianist Austin Cook, guitarist Matt Sangiovanni, bassist Matt Rubano, and violinist Mona Tian.
