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.

"Raise You Up" / "Just Be" from Kinky Boots (Billy Porter, Stark Sands and Company)


Ulterior Motives: We are sending Happy Birthday wishes to Tony winner Ms. Cyndi Lauper. Cyndi wrote the score to the fabulous 2013 Tony winning musical Kinky Boots. Cyndi also appeared on the Broadway stage making her Broadway debut in Roundabout's The Threepenny Opera opposite Alan Cumming in 2006.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Any opportunity to further highlight the special Thanksgiving Parade ensemble Tony winner Billy Porter wore as Lola while giving his captivating performance, we will celebrate it. Billy and Stark were such a dynamic duo in this show. Our ultimate moment of the clip is "Just Be"'s steps to the secret of success: 3:01 - 3:27's moment: "You change the world when you change your mind!"
