Hot Clip of the Day: Purlie Star Melba Moore Takes You to Infinity & Beyond with "I've Got Love"

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.
"I Got Love" (Melba Moore, Purlie)
Ulterior Motives: Purlie opened today at the Broadway Theatre, and showstopper Melba Moore went on to win a Tony Award for her performance as Lutiebelle.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: When Melba gets up from that chair on that "love, love, love" at 1:16, it's like sitting on top of a roller coaster giddy for the fall that's about to come. My personal fave moment is 2:33 for "bye bye blues"—when the roller coaster basically just flips upside and goes to the side all at once.
