Time for some comedy.
Malinda Kathleen Reese is an actress, singer and dancer from the USA. She started her YouTube channel in 2010 but it didn't take off until 4 years later when she took the lyrics of Let It Snow, from the Disney film Frozen, put them in Google Translate and have it translate the lyrics from one language to another, using the previous translation as the source of the next one, and finally back into English. She then sang the resultant lyrics to the original tune and backing. This video then went viral and started the hilarious series Google Translate Sings where she inflicts the same treatment to other well known songs.
Brian Hull is an actor, impressionist, singer, and comedian from the USA. He started his YouTube channel in 2009 but became famous in 2014 when a video of him singing Let It Go, from the 2013 movie Frozen, in the voices of various Disney and Pixar characters went viral. Since then he has been given work as a voice actor while continuing as a regular YouTube contributer.
Friend Like Me was originally released as a part of the soundtrack for the 1992 film Aladdin and was sung by Robin Williams, as the Genie, in the movie. In the movie the song is used by the Genie to explain to Aladdin that he can have anything he wants through the Genie‘s magic as reward for releasing the Genie from the lamp. This is another song in the Google Translates series and is a great addition to the series. Although Malinda gets top billing for this song most of the singing is from Brian who sings a very different song than in the earlier version that was included on the blog, I guess that’s one of the advantages of having the song published on your channel.
