It seems the internet has an insatiable capacity for churning out new renditions of "Let It Go," the Academy Award-nominated song from Disney's Frozen. And that's fine by us! We've seen the multi-language version, the baby version, the explicit version, and still can't get enough of this stunning song in any and every incarnation. People all across the world have been belting it out along with Broadway star Idina Menzel, whether it be in their own fan-made tributes or at the special Sing-A-Long rerelease. But one wonderfully talented songstress is showing us all how a cavalcade of divas would handle the already iconic number.
Tastefully Offensive tipped us off to Christina Bianco's "Let It Go" cover. In the clip above, Bianco proves impressive not only at singing the demanding song, but also at impersonating a wide range of singers, including Idina Menzel, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion, Kristin Chenoweth, Adele, Julie Andrews, Barbara Streisand, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and Liza Minnelli. No one has let it go like this before! Bianco positively kills it, between the signature inflections of these pop stars and Broadway legends, to their distinctive physicalities.
This performance was captured live from her appearances at Birdland in New York City, on February 10th, 2014. But you might recognize Bianco from another impression-packed performance she belted out last summer at Manhattan's the supper club 54 Below. There, late into an open-mic night, she performed "Total Eclipse of the Heart" as nearly all of the above talent, as well as Judy Garland, Patti Lupone, Edith Piaf, Bette Midler, Bernadette Peters, Gwen Stefani, Zooey Deschanel, Shakira, and Norah Jones!
Or maybe you saw her take her many voices to Ellen last September? There she performed "Total Eclipse of the Heart" with Ellen calling the shots on who sings what part.
And, as it's Presidents' Day, let's have Bianco sing us out with "The National Anthem." Or rather, let's have her sing us out with "The National Anthem" as Christina Aguilera, Kristin Chenoweth and Celine Dion.
