If You Weren’t Already Aware, Here’s More Proof That Kristen Bell Is Amazingly Talented

For her performance as Princess Anna in Frozen, Kristen Bell surprised many viewers who were previously unaware of her impressive background in musical theater. And the actress only reinforced her incredible multihyphenate talent during a live concert performance of the film's songs alongside the rest of the cast.

The event was held back in February, but the footage has slowly leaked in the last couple of months, and the best video making the rounds this morning is “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” Bell delightfully tackled the entire song in the voice of Anna through every stage of her childhood, and she hits every characterization (child, preteen, young adult) perfectly. (In the film, the younger parts are sung by the children Agatha Lee Monn and Katie Lopez, respectively.) To go straight to the performance, skip ahead to 1:00.
