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.
"Up" (The Cast of Sing Street)
Ulterior Motives: Listen "Up" (and bookmark this link) as this Thursday, April 30th, the Broadway cast of Sing Street is doing something very special. The cast is coming together for a special half hour concert from their homes (Ireland, Great Britain, New York, California and more) to perform (instruments and all) on Facebook Live from 6:30pm - 7pm EST.
The event is called SING STREET: Grounded - At Home With The Broadway Cast. We'll be hearing Sing Street tunes "Up," "Drive It Like You Stole It, "Go Now," and the extra special "Love and Stars" - the world premiere new song for the Broadway production. "Up" has been on repeat forever because it is just the dreamiest so we can't wait what "Love and Stars" has in store. This special livestream is to benefit The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City & Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. A donate button will be available on the Facebook Live or you can donate directly to either of the charities' websites.
The show's creative team is stellar with direction by Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent), book by Tony Award winner Enda Walsh (Once) and choreography by Obie Award winner Sonya Tayeh (Moulin Rouge). The Facebook Live broadcast will be available on demand until Monday May 4 at 6:30pm EST. To experience it live, set a reminder for Thursday April 30th at 6:30pm EST for this exciting event.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: We need to talk about the lyrics. Usually we call out a harmony or a high belting moment but here - the lyrics starting right at 8 seconds in through 0:51 are so gorgeously cinematic. Shout out to Gary Clark (front man of Danny Wilson) and John Carney ("Modern Love") for capturing feelings so picture perfectly. John Carney also wrote and directed the film the musical is based on (which we want to watch immediately).
