What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

All I Ask

bell 1At a time when it seems like we are constantly bombarded with news of violence and death and intolerance and unrest, we all need something beautiful. This blog is my small daily contribution. And while it never feels like enough, I think it’s important that we continue to work hard to put out more good than bad in the world. I wish us all comfort and peace. ❤

Now, back to our regularly-scheduled program.

Every so often, I forget to turn off autoplay on YouTube. The things that come up are sometimes related to what just played, sometimes not. They are sometimes intriguing or bizarre, occasionally hilarious, and, on rare occasions, truly spectacular. This is one of the latter.

The music is John Saga’s very good cover of Adele’s All I Ask. The original is beautiful, and Saga does a really nice job of covering it. What really struck me, though, is the choreography. Zowie!

The piece is choreographed by Will B. Bell, and beautifully danced by  Dj Smart and Zola Williams. To quote one of the YouTube commenters, “They have most definitely NOT skipped leg day.”

These two beautiful young people are no strangers to Bell’s choreography. Here they are dancing to Love in the Dark.

Bell can also be seen dancing to his own choreography in a few of the videos on his channel. He’s every bit as remarkable a dancer as he is a choreographer.

  1. I didn’t get a chance to view your post today before I had to leave for work which is my usual norm. I had a good day at work which was made even better by coming home to this feel good post. Thanks!

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the daily dose of the beauty around us. It is so disheartening to witness so much of what is going on in the world, but your contribution is very much appreciated.
