Video Break Time: Andrew Winghart's "Cry Me a River" Is Crazy Good, You Guys
Some monster hit songs die quickly; some only get better with age. Falling squarely in the latter category is Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River,” which, at 15 years young, is still better than 90 percent of the stuff on the radio today. And choreographer/A.C.E. Award winner/genius Andrew Winghart knows it.
Winghart chose the timeless track for his latest concept video, creating a “river” of 36 (!) women to embody the swirl of emotions surrounding a breakup. He does a brilliant job harnessing the power of numbers, and soloist George Lawrence II (eee, “SYT” George! We’ve missed you!) gives a poignant performance at the center of the deluge.
Btw: If you’re a big Winghart fan (which you are, of course), let’s just say you’ll especially enjoy our April issue. Make sure it’s headed your way!
