Hot Clip of the Day: Motown's Jesse Nager Brings All the Soul to Sondheim's "Move On"
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.
"Move On" (Jesse Nager, Sunday in the Park with George)
Ulterior Motives: As Motown grooves its way back to Broadway this week, BBox highlights a new star each day with Before They Were (Motown) Stars. Today, we meet Jesse Nager, the sensational tenor starring as Smokey Robinson.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Slay, Jesse. Those vocals are so legit throughout but it's like rocket into space from 1:35-1:55. I'd download this as a single.
Check out the all-new Motown at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre.
