Hot Clip of the Day: Rejoice with Soara-Joye Ross & the Company of The First Noel
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.
"O Come, Come Emmanuel" (Soara-Joye Ross & Company, The First Noel)
Ulterior Motives: This holiday season, the legendary Apollo Theater presents Classical Theatre of Harlem's musical The First Noel. The show blends an original score with reimagined classic carols as it follows three generations of a Harlem family affected by the tragic loss of a loved one. Running December 10-18.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Soara-Joye Ross (who you may remember as the fierce Princess Who Kissed the Frog from Disenchanted) absolutely brings you to church in this number. Her part starts around 1:03 but you are not ready for 2:13-2:35—she is melting faces and taking names.
