Happy Music Monday to all. As you know, the Disney’s Frozen has continually received rave reviews from critics and every day viewers. The music in the movie is bangin’, and the song “Let It Go” is particularly noteworthy. Since the movie’s release and increased popularity in the song, many covers have been done. Here are a few of my faves.
1. “Let it Go/Let Her Go Mashup” by Sam Tsui
This cover is by Youtube musician Sam Tsui, and it is so majestic. Tsui effortlessly intermingles the Frozen song with Passenger’s hit “Let Her Go,” without missing a beat. It sounds as if the two songs are actually one. This cover is so clever and Tsui sounds and looks so triumphant as he sings, I could watch it on repeat for a good while.
2. “Bet It Go”
This video is a mash up of “Let it Go” played over the scene in High School Musical 2 where Zac Efron leaps around the golf course singing “Bet On It.” This video is pretty close to perfection. The big moments in the song match the big moments in Efron’s cheesy choreography, making for a hilarious dance number.
3. “Let it Go” by Alex Boye (Africianized Tribal Cover) Ft. One Voice Children’s Choir
This song is so powerful. The African tribal deal humming in the background serves as a wonderful backdrop for this powerful little girl to sing her heart out. She looks like she’s about 9 years old, but she is so good! When the rest of the choir comes out, I can’t handle how wonderful it is. They sound so angelic and powerful and magnificent.
4. “Maddie and Zoe Sing ‘Let it Go’ from Disney’s Frozen”
This video consists of two adorable 4-year-old girls singing the song. Although many parts of the song prove to be difficult to understand, it is so gosh darn cute I can’t help but love it. The expressions on both girls’ faces are hysterical, and even though the don’t sing on key, they do a heck of a lot better than I would have.
Have a great week, and thanks for reading
Happy Monday everyone! Freshly Brewed and Out of the Dawg House, Butler’s female and male a Capella groups, had their spring concerts this weekend. They were both absolutely wonderful and I cannot get over how talented they all are.
Friday night was Freshly Brewed’s concert. As I have mentioned before, my friend Allie is in Freshly Brewed, so I always get extra excited to see them sing. They sang a great variety of songs ranging from “Yesterday” by The Beatles, to “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran, to a sweet Kanye mash-up. The highlight of the evening, by far, was when Allie had a solo! She sang “The Call” by Regina Spektor. I already loved this song, and hearing Allie sing it gave me goosebumps.
Satruday was Out of the Dawg House’s concert, and they were stupdenous. They sang a variety of songs as well. My fave was probably “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison. A close second, though, was “Staying Alive” by The Bee Gees. They were super entertaining and made funny commentary inbetween songs, which made the concert even better.
I’ve mentioned before how I have no musical talent whatsoever, causing me to be super excited and inspired by those who do. Both a Capella groups were so great and I loved both of the concerts so much. I even bought a Freshly Brewed sweatshirt and Out of the Dawg House t-shirt. #Number1Fan. I wore my sweatshirt yesterday and got asked several times if I was in Freshly Brewed, prompting me to explain that I’m just a creepy wanna be. #ADayInTheLife
P.S. I linked both groups’ Facebook pages, so go and like them!!
Best of luck on finals and have a great week
“The Call” performed by Freshly Brewed
Happy Thursday everybody! Since I posted a vlog on Monday instead of the classic Music Monday, I thought I would discuss some music today! Since I have been home for break, I have been watching loads of television. I love lounging around all day, and since I was sick last week, I had the perfect excuse to do just that. I took this prime lounging time to begin catching up on this past season of The Voice.
The season 3 finale of The Voice was about a week ago, so I am a little late to the party. Nonetheless, I have been watching feverishly. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the show, contestants try out, and compete, to be the next great singer. The unique part of the show is that the singing hopefuls audition with the judge’s backs to them. This way the contestant’s looks do not play in to whether or not they make the cut. The four coaches, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera, sit with their backs to the contestants and turn around when they like what they hear, welcoming the singer onto their team, thusly welcoming them to the show.
Every single person who auditions is so incredibly talented! They all make me feel sufficiently inadequate with my musical abilities, but then again, so do most people. As if the talent wasn’t enough to hook me, the always attractive Adam Levine is a coach. *Swoon* I am probably almost halfway through the season so far, but I thought I would share some of my favorite performances with you. I hope everyone is enjoying break, and thanks for reading
Mackenzie Bourg “Pumped Up Kicks”
Melanie Martinez “Toxic”
Trevin Hunte vs. Amanda Brown “Vision of Love”
Happy Music Monday! On Friday night, Freshly Brewed, the women’s a Cappella group on campus, had their first concert. As I mentioned in my post about Out of the Dawg House, I am fascinated by people with musical abilities. My friend Allie is in Freshly Brewed, so I have basically been looking forward to hearing her sing all semester!
Out of the Dawg House opened the concert and they were perfect as always (their concert was on Saturday night, but I went to the Nutcracker instead, so unfortunately I missed it)! The concert was so good! The girls sang a variety of songs, including a lot of mash-ups.They did one Harry Potter themed song where they whipped out Potter glasses, thus proving that they are in fact as cool as I thought they were. They also came and serenaded the girls in the Schwitzer lobby earlier in the week to encourage people to come to the concert. They were seriously fantastic and I cannot wait for the next concert! Here are a few of their songs! Have a fantastic week and thanks for reading
