Think you’ve heard every single version of Frozen‘s “Let it Go” that is available in the world?
Well, you might be wrong about that because it was revealed that Disney release a record which features 50 different versions of the hit song this past Tuesday (April 15). Originally sang by Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem, up to you), the song was first cover by pop star Demi Lovato before the film hit theaters and became a hands down hit following the onslaught of the world covering it and even crooning it out on the car.
Don’t lie, you’ve done it too.
The album will feature version of the song sang in different languages including Arabic, Dutch, Finnish, German Greek and many, many more. The album is currently available on Amazon and can be purchase there. Some behind-the-mic footage from the recordings has been made available; watch it now.
Frozen has now broken so many records, it’s hard to keep it in check. The soundtrack has spent ten weeks at number one on the Billboard 200, has gone platinum selling over 2.1 millions copies, made composer Robert Lopez the youngest person to become an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) and parents are shelling out thousand so their children can get official Disney merchandise from the film.
When you have a hit, you have a hit. Lion King, beware, Elsa and Anna are coming for your title.
Last night, Idina Menzel or shall we call her Adele Nazeem took to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform her Academy Award winning song “Let it Go” from Frozen.
The cute video features Fallon, The Roots and Menzel playing kiddie instruments that you would find in a music class at your local elementary school including the likes of a small electronic piano, a color xylophone, a triangle and a couple of blocks.
If the scene looks familiar to you, then you’d be right. Last Summer, Fallon did the same kind of skit with Robin Thicke where they performed “Blurred Lines” with the same kiddie instruments.
Watch the adorable clip below and have fun singing along to it.
If you were the small percentage that did not tune in to see the Oscars, then don’t worry, it was long and boring except for the parts that host Ellen DeGeneres was on-screen including making fun of people, giving out pizza and crashing Twitter with “The Worlds Most Retweeted” picture.
During the show, several artists took to the stage to perform their Oscar nominated songs. Pharrell with his Smokey the Bear hat took to the stage for the Despicable Me 2 theme and radio hit, “Happy” with a group of dancer. The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O. and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig performed “The Moon Song” from Her while U2 paid tribute to Nelson Mandela with “Ordinary Love” from Mandela. Idina Menzel got in touch with Snow Queen, Elsa to perform “Let it Go” from Frozen after John Travolta-gate.
With the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz is upon us and P!nk was asked to honor it by performing “Over the Rainbow.” Bette Midler sang “Wind Beneath My Wings” as part of the ‘In Memorium’ for all the fallen heroes of Hollywood.
