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.

"When I Marry Mister Snow" from Carousel (Audra McDonald)

Ulterior Motives: A showtune with "snow" in the title while the Northeast is hit with a winter storm - too literal? Honestly, anytime we can feature the impeccable acting and pristine vocals of Broadway's own Audra McDonald, the better. This clip is from Audra's second Broadway show and her first Tony Award winning performance in the 1994 Broadway revival of Carousel. If you haven't listened to the cast album, give it a spin because the score, orchestrated by Tony Award winner William David Brohn is lush and gorgeous sweeping through the Rodgers and Hammerstein score.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Julie Jordan (Sally Murphy) and Carrie Pipperidge's friendship is so evident in this clip. Our ultimate moment is at 0:58-1:41 where it feels like we are taking a peek into a conversation between best friends while Audra's beautiful, stunning voice is full of honesty conveying what happened between her and her fisherman beau Enoch Snow.
