Do you want to build a snowman? No! I want to hear Kristen Bell sing. Seriously, the girl has chops I didn't know existed until I saw Frozen. When I heard that my favorite sloth-loving actress was playing opposite one of my favorite Broadway stars Idina Menzel, I was a teensy bit nervous to see if she'd be able to hold her own.
Kristen did not disappoint. I know Idina has gotten most of the musical attention from the Oscar-winning "Let It Go," but Kristen's solo song, "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" is spectacular in its own right. And if it didn't make you tear up when you saw it the first (or fourth) time, then we have nothing in common and I won't share my wine or tissues with you.
Anyway, a video of Kristen singing the song live at concert in February has gone viral, and girl was amazing. Not only did she sing it flawlessly, but she sang all three of Princess Anna's parts!
If you haven't seen the movie, this song begins when Anna and Elsa are children, moves into the tween years, and ends with Anna as a young woman, devastated over the death of her parents (I told you we couldn't be friends if you didn't cry over this -- it would be like not crying when Simba's dad died).
In the movie, other actors were used for Anna's younger voices, but Kristen recreated them by singing in different octaves and adopting the different attitudes of an impatient (and a little squeaky!) child and impetuous tween.
Take a look -- it's amazing.
Were you impressed by the vocal talents in Frozen?
