SEATTLE — The former Utah 3-year-old who went viral with her own renditions of several Disney songs is back at it with a new video.
Claire Ryann Crosby and her dad, Dave Crosby, are originally from Utah but are now living in the Seattle area. The duo went viral after Crosby posted a video of Claire sweetly singing “Part of Your World” from the 1989 Disney classic, “The Little Mermaid.” The impressive vocals of the 3-year-old quickly garnered international attention, and the YouTube video has since been viewed more than 10 million times.
In June, Claire and her videographer father traveled to Utah so they could recreate the duet from “Tangled” at the annual Lantern Fest. Now, in their latest video, Claire visited the Seattle Chinese Garden to create her own rendition of “Reflections” from Disney’s “Mulan.”
At 3 years old, Claire is impressive not only because she can clearly pronounce all the words and even has vibrato, but also because she perfectly encapsulates the mood of each song she sings and uses the right inflections to convey the feeling behind the words.
She does a fantastic job portraying the mournful Mulan while singing about being the perfect daughter.
“Although she plays the part well, in real life, Claire is definitely the perfect daughter,” Crosby wrote in the video description.
