Today’s videopolis is something new to me in Disney fandom. YouTuber June Asai put together an imaginative cover of the opening song “Little Town” from Disney’s animated classic “Beauty and the Beast.” Not only does Asai sing all the parts, she plays each of the 38 characters, with a modern twist on the costumes. She then digitally inserts them in modern street scenes, but still it feels like Beauty and the Beast.
According to her bio, June Asia is a Japanese American singer/songwriter and actress. She credits living abroad for expanding her perspective on culture and music. Asai may be just another YouTuber trying to make her mark among the millions of artists, but at least her work is original.
