Hot Clip of the Day: Hamilton OBC Throwback in Honor of Some Good News
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.
"Alexander Hamilton" (The Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton)
Ulterior Motives: John Krasinski, actual angel from NBC's The Office and Amazon's Jack Ryan launched a YouTube channel Some Good News. According to his channel - his goal is to spread some good news with the world, which we could all use these days. Recently, Krasinski came across a tweet from a girl named Aubrey who was unable to see a production of Hamilton in Jacksonville, Florida for her 9th birthday. With help from Mary Poppins (!) and some familiar Broadway faces, Aubrey got quite the surprise! We're throwing it back four years ago when local D.C. students were invited to The White House, under former President Obama's administration, for a special performance by this multi-talented cast.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Love 11:13-11:41 - Leslie Odom Jr as Aaron Burr's breakdown is right in the song's groove. He attacks every single consonant. The energy behind these lines is palpable.
