Last weekend, Frozen became the highest-grossing animated film in history when it surpassed previous record-holder Toy Story 3, which had held the record for over three years. The music of Frozen is one of the biggest reasons why its popularity has soared, though other aspects of the film such as the great voice work also came together to form a great final product. After the break, watch Kristen Bell, voice of Anna, sing “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” live, and witness both great music and acting on stage!
Prior to the Academy Awards, Disney held a one-night-only celebration of Frozen‘s music at the Vibrato Grill Jazz Club in Los Angeles, California. Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana took to the stage together for the first (and likely, last) time ever to speak about the music and their characters, as well as perform their songs from the film. We have seen portions of the performances, but Disney has (thankfully!) been slowly releasing more.
Bell gives what is one of the strongest performances in the film, with the transition from her goofy, clumsy side to her more emotional side happening seamlessly. It also helps that Bell, like the other voice actors in the film, is talented in the musical department. Watch her live performance of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” below, where she sings as all three variations of her character, which includes her younger selves:
Frozen is now available on Blu-ray and DVD! If you, somehow, have not yet picked up a copy, the film is available on Amazon.
