Brian Hull’s Version of Disney’s ‘Let it Go’ Has Garnered Almost 9 Million YouTube HIts
Brian Hull is nothing if not humble…and talented…and a rising star.
His version of Disney’s “Let it Go” has gone viral and the will-be star has earned millions of fans in the process.
The student at Dallas Baptist University is a vocal performance major, and a self-professed “Disney nerd.”
In an attempt to enter a competition for a $100 gift card to the Disney Store, Hull made a video of himself singing “Let it Go,” from the Oscar-winning animated Disney movie “Frozen.” The video had to be submitted via YouTube so Hull, who had not originally intended to post the song online, put it up on his personal YouTube page.
It turns out that the video, which Hull did in just one take, was uploaded too late for him to win the gift card. What happened next took his breath away. As of this posting Brian Hull, who says he is receiving no monetary compensation for his YouTube video, has garnered more than 8.7 million hits. Disney executives have taken notice and offered Brian an audition.
"” I’ve been working on Kermit….he’s not quite there yet… "
The only thing that has changed, other than the notoriety, Hull says, is that he is devoting time to curating some more impressions – like those of the Muppets following the release of “Muppets Most Wanted” on March 21, 2014. “I’ve been working on Kermit…” Hull says, “He’s not quite there yet…”
