Best “Let it Go” Cover. Ever.

I have been watching plenty of covers of the Frozen songs, as I’ve been trying to find the greatest covers to share with you guys. 

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!

Such a pretty smile!
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!

They are all so talented!

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.)

  3. I'm glad you agree, Dewey :)

    I will have to watch the video when I'm alone in the lab tonight...but I'm sure it will be amazing.

  4. Wow can't believe that big voice came from such a small little girl. I agree he does remind me of a Rafiki, and the africanization of the song just adds to an already wonderful song.

  5. Cheryl, I was also blown away by her voice! I was not expecting it at all!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Alex Boye looks like Rafiki ;) The africanization is amazing, only thing better would be some Norwegian chanting, since that's where Frozen is based off of.
