Frozen was an instant hit in theatres, and “Let It Go” has spawned a lot of great covers.

And some covers that are a bit more…colorful.

Like this one using clips from Batman & Robin with Mr. Freeze singing the song. Let’s just say my nerd heart singing right along with him.

Shout out to Mark Schroeder, who does a killer Arnold voice.

I’ve found a new favorite comedian/singer, and her name is Christina Bianco. She has the unique talent of having perfect comedic timing, and gorgeous voice, and a terrifyingly accurate ability to sing like some of the greats.

I’m talking Christina Aguilera, Bernadette Peters, and Kristen Chenowith, just to name a few. And it’s not just her voice. She’s got those mannerisms down pat.

My two favorite videos are below:

In the first one, she sings “O Holy Night.” It really shows off her vocal talents, and the crowd is quiet enough that you can actually hear every note.


 
This video really shows how easily she can jump back and forth between different voices. And that Kristen Chenowith, man. It’s so spot on.


 
My favorite voices are Beradette Peters, Kristen Chenowith, and Julie Andrews. Which are yours?

You can watch more videos of her on her YouTube channel.

I know not all of you guys are into rap music, but this comes off much more like spoken word. It’s a beautiful song with a beautiful message. A friend sent this to me and I just had to share.


 
Same love. <3

Guaranteed to be the greatest 38 seconds of your day.

You might recall that one of my all-time favorite videos on YouTube is Heather Traska’s “One Woman A Capella Disney Medley.” It’s quite possibly the most intricate and well put together video I’ve ever seen.

And guess what? She just released her second one! It features a lot more villains, including a quick cameo of her as Hades. If you know anything about me, you’ll know my love for Disney’s Hercules has no bounds.

Check out part two right here!


 
Which was your favorite part?

Wednesday’s post was a bit heavy, and in the wake of everything, I think we all need a dose of cuteness, don’t you?

I literally can’t stop watching this video. And I can’t stop laughing. HE’S SO ADORABLE.

I just couldn’t help myself as soon as I saw this video. I had to share it with you guys.

Hilarious and obviously talented, this guy is spot on with the lyrics to these songs. I love the way he executed it too!


 

Which one was your favorite? I’m pretty particular to Pocahontas’. I hope he does a second one!

(P.S. This guy is really clever. Check out his YouTube channel.)

My initial plan for today was to give you guys a run down on what I thought of The Host. However, that plan was quickly laid to rest when I found out we’re embargoed, even after being told something different at the event.

Bummer.

So, instead, I’ve got another featured video for you guys. I usually try not to do them back-to-back like this, but this one is so beautiful and powerful I couldn’t pass it up. I came across it thanks to the ever-fabulous Kait Nolan, who posted it on Friday.

This resonates with me, not as someone who got bullied, but as someone who was often neglected in school. I was always one step out of sync with everyone else, and although it usually didn’t bother me, I can’t say that I never wished, for once, that one of the popular kids would invite me to sit with them at lunch.

I’m much more confident today than I was back then, and that simply came from accepting I was different. From being proud that I wasn’t the same as everyone else. That I had higher aspirations and an outlook that meant I never quite saw things the same way as my peers.

I hope this poem and video helps other people realize they are who they are, and the sooner they accept that, the better off they’ll be.

Please share it with someone you think will appreciate it.

What I wouldn’t give to play ONE of these instruments HALF as well as she does.

Do you ever feel like some people are just too talented for their own good?

“Every day we read stories about our troubled youth, and if you are our future, then what a glorious future South Africa has.”

It doesn’t matter if you are South African or not, this video is one of the most beautiful and touching things I’ve ever seen. If she is our future, then what a glorious future this world has.
