Kristen Bell’s Bedtime Song Is A Shoutout To Parents Everywhere
Kristen Bell ― known for her acting skills and her vocal talents ― has provided a song for parents to help them get their kids to sleep. But it has a major twist.
During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday, the star of “The Good Place” channeled her role as Princess Anna in “Frozen” and sang a version of the film’s song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”
Kimmel asked the actress and mom of two to sing the song after pointing out that, as Princess Anna, she wasn’t a part of Disney’s project in which parents can call 1-877-7-MICKEY to hear classic characters offer kids a good-night message. Bell’s version of the song, which can be heard in the video above, is definitely a shoutout more for parents than kids.
This funny and relatable version is reminiscent of the time Jennifer Garner read the book Go the F**k to Sleep on video for Vanity Fair. And who can forget when Samuel L. Jackson recorded the audio version of the same story — or when LeVar Burton, host of “Reading Rainbow,” read it to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals?
Bedtime with kids ― sometimes you have to laugh so you don’t cry.
