We've seen plenty of covers and even a few Idina Menzel-sung renditions of "Let it Go" since Frozen released in theaters last year, but there are other songs on the Disney film's soundtrack that deserve plenty of love, and that includes Anna's heartbreaking "Do You Want To Build a Snowman." The above video -- which has understandably been racking up views since going live late last month -- is from the Frozen cabaret many of us wish we'd been invited to attend, and has Kristen Bell singing the song, voicing all three ages of her character.
Not only does Bell sound incredible, but she also brings all the right emotion to the song. Not that I teared up or anything. Because, I mean it's just a song... about a little sister who just misses her big sister and wants things to be like they used to. Excuse me for a minute. Something in my eye...
I also love how she handles the age progression of her character through the song, and she does the keyhole part perfectly...
I was actually kind of hoping that the full recording of this Frozen cabaret had been included on the Blu-ray. Alas, we'll have to make do with the clips that have made their way online, including a snippet of Idina Menzel singing "Let it Go", and a video of Kristen Bell and Santino Fontana singing "Love is an Open Door":
Who else really wants to see Kristen Bell work with Frozen song-writers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez on something musical related in the future? We actually asked Bell about that when we spoke to her at the Veronica Mars junket. Though it sounds like her work and family commitments will keep her from heading off to New York for Broadway work in the near future, Bell did tell us that she's planning on collaborating with Robert and Kristen Lopez in the future, saying, "I would love to do a musical, and I would like to collaborate again in the future with Bobby and Kristen Lopez who wrote the music for Frozen." She added. "I think that’s going to happen."
She confirmed that she does think it's going to happen, and when we pressed her for more info, the only thing she was able to say was that it would be something related to the stage. So here's hoping that happens! In the meantime, we'll continue to appreciate what the Lopezes have already given us, including the excellent "How Did We Make Frozen" bonus feature that is on the Blu-ray. Check out an amazing snippet of that below:
