Search “Let it Go cover” on YouTube and you will get about a million results. Some of them are cute little kids singing their heart out while others are just Demi Lovato. Frozen is the first big Disney movie that’s had this kind of following in a long long time. When was the last time you couldn’t go somewhere without hearing someone singing a tune from the latest Disney flick? Since the Lion King came out in 1994, it’s been a while.
Most of the ‘Let it Go’ covers are very forgettable, so it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd. Alex Boye succeed though with this Americanized tribal cover. It’s a crazy combination of a song from wintery Norwegian inspired movie and the warm sounds of Africa… yet it works.
Have you ever come across a crazy cover that just seems to work? Let me know in the comments.
