Lindsey Stirling Covers BEAUTY AND THE BEAST’s Songs

Back in the early days of Lindsey Stirling‘s rise to YouTube and music stardom, she often performed epic violin covers of movie and video game themes while sharing her love of cosplay as well. Now that Stirling is on tour, she rarely gets a chance to revisit her roots…but when she does, it’s a very special occasion!Just in time for Beauty and the Beast‘s live-action remake later this week, Stirling has posted a video she filmed while on tour in which she covered many of the best songs by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman. Naturally, Stirling performed while wearing a recreation of Belle’s famous blue dress from Disney’s animated classic. And in a clever way of mashing up her cosplay character and herself, Stirling’s cover of “Belle” was filmed while she walked around the various stagehands who were setting up one of her concerts.There may have been some in-jokes happening during Stirling’s covers for “Something There” and “Gaston,” as the various members of her team assumed similar roles to their animated counterparts. By the time that “Be Our Guest” came up, Stirling let her fans get in on the fun as she greeted them in costume and even danced alongside them for the video. She followed that with a stunning reprise of “Belle.” Naturally, the only way to close out the video was with a cover of the “Beauty and the Beast” title theme. As a whole, the video was simply breathtaking.What did you think about Stirling’s new Beauty and the Beast video?
