Due to my new job, my schedule has been a bit hectic this week. I finally have some free time today! I hope you don’t mind that this blog post is Disney-related. Yes, this post is about Frozen, but hear me out before you roll your eyes and walk away. First of all, I’m going to be honest and tell you I have not actually watched the movie. As a Disney fanatic, I know that is like admitting to a crime, but I simply haven’t had an opportunity to do so. Now that my “crime” is out in the open, I want to shine a light on what I believe is a hidden gem in the soundtrack. The hype around Frozen has been unreal, and the film & music are in no way eligible for the label “underrated.” However, I think there is a song that deserves a lot more recognition. Do You Want to Build a Snowman starts out cute and transitions into a very serious and emotional song. Elsa has isolated herself from the world, and Anna knocks on her door at three different ages asking her to build a snowman. The first time she knocks, Anna is 5 years old (voiced by Katie Lopez). The second time she is 9 (voiced by Agatha Lee Monn). When Kristen Bell takes over as her singing voice the third and final time, Anna is 18. Katie and Agatha did such a great job capturing Anna’s childish innocence and personality. Well done ladies! I want to shine a very special spotlight on Kristen because she deserves so much more credit for the depth and emotion she adds to the final verse. Every time I hear her sing the lyrics, I’m a blubbering mess. I have provided a video of the scene/song down below. I highly recommend you close your eyes because even without watching, Kristen’s voice makes you feel and understand what is happening. How do I know that?? I’ve only ever heard the song. I watched the movie scene for the first time today.
I cried watching it! Did you? From the title, you would never think of this song as emotionally impactful, but it truly is. Disney tricked us!! 😂
