World Idol? I guess not!
Hi guys, since I had done Let it Go for Frozen, now it's Mulan's turn for her pop version of Reflection. Ready?
Mandarin Chinese (Coco Lee)
This was the first version that I heard and it's sung by Coco Lee, her version is the only authentic as it is sung in Mandarin and was Asia's answer to Christina Aguilera (no puns intended), who sang the original and in Spanish. I wish they do a duet sometimes in the near future!
English (Christina Aguilera & Jackie Evancho)
The original version that started it all, I fell in love with this version as Christina has an amazing voice and she is my favourite singer. Jackie Evancho also did a cover version of it and her rendition is another amazing performance, so check it out!
Spanish (Christina Aguilera & Lucero)
I was actually very surprise that Lucero also did her rendition and the music video is also identical to Christina's! Both version are amazing and I am very neutral with both versions, Spanish is a very romantic language to listen to.
Korean (Lena Park)
Although I love Korean Music, Lena starts of as very soft as a shy innocent Korean girl before gradually coming out of the shell as the song progresses. I personally think this is how the song should sound like, so good job Lena!
French (Melanie Cohl)
Another romantic language, just so you know that the singer is a Belgian and her voice eerily reminds of Anais Delva, the French singer who voiced Elsa in the French dubbing of Frozen at some parts.
Once again, she starts of as very soft during the first verse and comes out strong during the first chorus. She is another singer that does this song justice, buon fortuna!
Brazilian Portuguese (Sandy)
My opinion overall is similar to the Latin American version, mainly because they sound similar and one thing is that her voice is very soothing.
Polish (Edyta Gorniak)
This version is actually my least favourite, because she sounds like she is dragging the notes while singing. Maybe that's just me, but she is very smooth during the chorus!
Thai (Ai Phanni Wiranukun)
I love how the song becomes a soft rock version, instead of the same intro that we hear in previous pop version that I listed it here. I guess that they want to make it more upbeat, so congratulations Thailand and deepest condolence to the Royal Family on the demise of your King there.
Cantonese (Kelly Chen)
She is another amazing singer, when I first saw photos of her, I was surprise that she looks very Japanese. But she is originally from Hong Kong and this is the only Cantonese song that I really like, unlike many Disney movies that were dub in Cantonese.
When My Reflection Show?
So here are my favourite international pop versions, do you have a favourite in mind?
The one that started it all!
Hello Jackie, we meet again.
Coco Lee, Asia's Christina Aguilera.
Even better than Christina! (get my sarcasm)
Syria is classy!!
Looks like Lucero's younger sister!!
There is something about you, Edyna!
Kelly Clarkson! No, it's Kelly Chen!!
