Frozen seems to be the movie of the season, and the talented a capella group Pentatonix brings the soundtrack to surging new life through their hilarious medley parody.
Featuring band members Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi and Kirstin Maldonado, the re-imagined performance includes the songs “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?,” “For the First Time in Forever,” “Love Is an Open Door” and “Let It Go” from the magical Disney film. This latest extravaganza is part of Grassi and Hoying’s online series, Superfruit.
The trio, which first sang together in high school, perform in the comfort of their apartment, complete with a white backdrop, blonde wigs and paper “salad” plates. Maldonado even lends her luscious brunette locks as a costume piece throughout the clip, only adding to the elevated nature of the effort. Of course, by the end, they fold under the pressure of their own adorable laughter.
While this performance isn’t the group’s typical harmonious a capella affair, it is just as gorgeously interpreted. They could very well flip the film’s catalogue on its head in the future. Side note: Are we the only ones that miss Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola?
Word on the street is that Frozen is headed to Broadway. If we were producers, we’d sign these kids up ASAP.
