They go together like Mariah Carey and ‘The Lion King,’ baby! Ex-‘American Idol’ finalist Todrick Hall teamed with Shoshana Bean for a perfect medley of R&B-inspired Disney hits. Listen up!
Todrick Hall, 30, first introduced us to his golden voice on American Idol‘s ninth season, and thankfully it’s not the last we’re hearing of the singer. Todrick enlisted Broadway superstar Shoshana Bean, 37, for an epic twist on Disney classics, taking our favorite movie tunes and turning them into smooth R&B jams. So cool!
Todrick Hall: Ex ‘Idol’ Finalist Sings Disney R&B Mashup
Talk about talent! Who would have ever thought that Ginuwine and The Little Mermaid would pair flawlessly, or that “This Is How We Do It” is basically Aladdin‘s “One Jump Ahead”? It was right there in front of us the whole time. Genius move, Todrick and Shoshana!
The biggest Disney animated hits of the 90s mixed up with the biggest R&B hits of the 90s? Perfection. The two YouTubers’ seriously got creative with their video, backing each mashup with a matching Disney-themed set and perfectly 90s-inspired costumes.
Think a red fanny pack and a shell bra top to highlight their Prince Eric and Ariel ensembles. Clashing animal prints (so many animal prints) for their Simba and Nala phase, and some truly stunning vests and overalls for their Aladdin and Princess Jasmine outfits. It’s called fashion; look it up.
Let’s see what they do with the 80s now!
Todrick’s Taking That Magic Carpet All The Way To The Top
Todrick ended the video with a special message just for fans: he’s going on tour this summer! He’ll be performing all his hits from his YouTube channel on the ToddlerzBall tour, and surely that includes all of these new classics created in this video.
Now we just have one question: when is Todrick’s album coming out? Though you can get the mashups on iTunes, we’d love to have a full album featuring Todrick’s amazing voice to listen to all day long. We’re not going to miss this tour!
