This Guy Can Sing “Let It Go” In The Voice of 21 Different Disney Characters

The best "Let It Go" cover yet?

When 22-year-old Brian Hull heard about a gift card contest that asked competitors to contribute their own cover of the song  ”Let It Go” from “Frozen,” he got to work on recording one — in the voices of 21 different Disney and Pixar characters. The vocal performance major at Dallas Baptist University brings the voices of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Sebastian The Crab, Tigger, Goofy and many others with impersonations you have to hear to believe. It’s almost scary how many voices he can do in rapid succesion!  If this kid does not have a voiceover contact already, Disney doesn’t know what it’s doing.  [USA Today]

“[Lady Gaga is] the first person I’ve brought directly into a performance. Other artists have wanted me to vomit on them but I said no! I chose her because I knew she understood what it was all about. She appreciates performance art. So doing that stuff live with her, with that kind of energy from the crowd, was really amazing. … We didn’t glamorize anything. All of my performances are meant to inspire viewers to question the concept of classic beauty and femininity, rather than perpetuate those standards girls and women are faced with every day; the ones that cause eating disorders in the first place! I think there’s an obvious difference between using my body to create something beautiful and to express myself rather than using it to harm myself and conform to society’s standards. My work rebels against those standards! I do understand how it could be triggering to some, but as an artist I can’t censor myself to keep everyone happy.”

Excuse me, but I’m still giving for having a hard time tearing away my side-eye from Millie Brown, the self-described “vomit artist” who barfed on Lady Gaga onstage during a SXSW show last week. Brown has been artistically puking in public for years (she claims to do it “every couple months”) and said Gaga invited her onstage to shove her fingers down her throat and barf green liquid after they both realized they were at SXSW. Pop star Demi Lovato, who has suffered from an eating disorder, accused to the two women of “glamorizing eating disorders,” tweeting, “Putting the word ART in it isn’t a free card to do what you want without consequence.” But Millie Brown is an artiste and she says pish posh to that: she told BULLET magazine that the performance was supposed to be about “the idea of purging all that bad energy and getting rid of it.” Okay, sure, whatever. As someone who has a dear friend with an eating disorder, I still can’t get past how Brown is essentially teaching people how to be bulimic by sticking their fingers down their throats. Art fart.
