Building

Building on a sense of positivism , I found this video on YouTube.
Not seeing the movie The Greatest Showman yet, I was still aware of this song which has become the film's anthem.
This video is a presentation of the song for the first time with the film's singing cast, and it's a revelation to watch.
The energy, the emotion and the fact Hugh Jackman cries make it a special moment all caught unexpectedly on camera
Enjoy

  10. I have watched this amazing clip several times and it continues to blow me away! The love is palpable and the talent tremendous. This is a movie to see for sure. Hugh Jackman has come a long way from Wolverine to starring in musicals and has done amazing in all! Of course he is surrounded by talent like this!

  11. Do try to catch the film at the cinema, JayGee. I saw it in December, having just compiled, unfortunately, my 10 Favourites of 2017, not imagining that this film ought to have been included, which it would have deserved. Today, it's still, amazingly, raking it in at cinemas, currently at something like #5, some 18 weeks later! A clear case of the public disagreeing with the almost unanimously less-than-enthusiastic critics' reviews :-http://raybeard.blogspot.co.uk/2017/12/film-greatest-showman.html

  17. I love a strong narrative in music, you can see, hear and feel the energy and emotion in that room. I hear a choir master one time say, you can't sing about hurt, until you have been hurt, you can't capture love, until you have been in love. The feeling comes from deep within, you can't fake it.

  19. I loved this movie! My Retired Man groaned when the picture first started but when it was over he said that it was great and very entertaining. The music and energy was fantastic. In my opinion, it was the best movie of last year.
