Hot Clip of the Day: Turn Up The A/C, Christopher Jackson's Singing "Benny's Dispatch!"
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.
"Benny's Dispatch" from In The Heights (Christopher Jackson and Mandy Gonzalez)
Ulterior Motives: Check 1, 2, 3! Your favorite taxi dispatcher in the Heights and Hamilton's George Washington, Christopher Jackson's awesome vocals can be dispatched to your living room next month!

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: In The Heights was such a fabulous showcase for Christopher's gorgeous singing voice and his effortless rap prowess. Our ultimate moment has to be at 0:54-1:13 when he turned the energy up one afternoon in a bookstore like it was a Friday night with your friends on the dance floor. He is such a fantastic performer!
