BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Local elementary school teacher Josh King is doing what he can to get his students excited for distance learning.

It's the most unique back-to-school season we've possibly ever seen, students are at home and parents are doing what they can to keep kids motivated, engaged, and entertained. To help, King created his own remix to a 'Hamilton' song for his students.

You may recognize King from viral his remix of the popular song, "Truth Hurts" by Lizzo, for his students during the morning announcements. King went viral, sending him to MTVs Video Music Awards where he’ll be a special correspondent on the red carpet, possibly getting to meet the artist who inspired his video.
