by BroadwayBox Staff
Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"Speak Lord/Churches" (Daniel J. Watts, featuring Derrick Baskin)
Ulterior Motives: Activist, poet, & actor Daniel J. Watts (Hamilton) takes the stage, along with cast members from Hamilton, On Your Feet! and Shuffle Along, at Webster Hall on July 31 to perform Daniel J. Watts' THE JAM: LOVE TERRORISTS (A Benefit for Orlando), in association with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: First off, Difficult People and Memphis' Derrick Baskin sounds incredible kicking it off, then Daniel J. Watts (in that awesome hat) just takes the ball and runs.
