Hot Clip of the Day: We Think of This Phantom "All I Ask Of You" Cover Fondly with Ewoldt and Ingram
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.
"All I Ask Of You" from The Phantom of the Opera (Ali Ewoldt and Rodney Ingram)
Ulterior Motives: May marks Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. An actress who made AAPI history on Broadway in 2016 is Ms. Ali Ewoldt who was cast as the first Asian-American Christine Daae on Broadway in The Phantom of the Opera. Ali is an extraordinary Broadway and national tour vet having appeared in beloved titles like Les Misérables, West Side Story and The King and I. In this video, Ali delivers a gorgeous version of the beloved romantic ballad from the show with her Raoul, Rodney Ingraham, in a sweet, acoustic ukulele version as part of our Broadway Unplugged series.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: It is such an awesome opportunity to hear this tune in this easy listening way. Ali and Rodney harmonize so beautifully together. We know that Ali can absolutely soar with her spectacular soprano voice but it's so wonderful to hear her so gorgeously perform this love song unplugged and to a ukulele! This radio worthy version makes 2:05 - 2:36 our ultimate moment. The harmonies, the sweetness, the easy breezy quality? We'll be thinking of this cover fondly!
