Which album finally drove Beyoncé‘s self-titled album out of the top Billboard spot a few weeks ago? It wasn’t Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 or Lorde‘s Pure Heroine. It was the soundtrack to Disney’s surprise smash hit Frozen. The film has amassed over $3.3 million since its release in November and a sing-along version is on its way. The soundtrack seems to be catching on due to the overwhelming popularity of the song, “Let It Go.” The song, which is sung by living Broadway legend Idina Menzel in the film and by Demi Lovato on the pop charts, has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song. So, naturally, it’s been covered by thousands of teenaged aspiring Broadway belters, hoards of enthusiastic four year olds and even by a music box. So we’re breaking down the 7 best covers of “Let It Go” online that are worth taking a gander at.
Idina Menzel, whose original version can be found here, has mentioned that she gets sent tons of YouTube clips of kids covering her ballad. This particular version, however, not only has the blended vocals of two four year old sisters letting it go on “Let It Go,” but it also has the visuals. You can apparently thank (or blame) their father for recording them and sharing it online.
