So I’m totally in the right to say this is the best “Let it Go” cover out there.
Seriously: You. Must. Listen.
Video from YouTube.
Why exactly does this cover blow my mind?
One, all the singers are freaking amazing. Alex Boye is really cool, and he reminds me of a humanized Rafiki. The children’s choir sends chills down my spine whenever they start singing. But the most amazing one of all is soloist Lexi Walker. Man, does she have an incredible voice, and she’s only 11 years old!

The instant she started singing, my jaw dropped.

Secondly, the idea of “Africanizing” the song is pure genius. One reason I love The Lion King is for all the African chanting put in. So to add that to one of my new favorite Disney songs is good on my list. I just wish I knew the translation.
And the kids are just all so cute! The ones who get to star as Frozen characters have such adorable yet simple costumes (TDM, take note). These kids were formerly known as the 2002 Olympics choir, and they’ve been doing a lot of professional recordings! Yay for kid power!

Finally, how far is Utah from Atchison, Kansas? Because I definitely want to visit this ice castle now!
In all honesty, I now believe that instead of Demi Lovato’s pop version (which I strongly dislike, but that’s a post for another time), Disney should have done a version of “Let it Go” with Idina and/or Lexi singing with a child’s choir in the background.
See you all real soon!
(PS: Alex Boye, with all this popularity, will probably put the song iTunes and Amazon, but for now you can buy it HERE.)
