The Wizard of Oz was a huge part of my daily routine as a child. I got up, put on my ruby slippers, and then went to school. When I got home, I would do my homework while watching the 1939 movie on a very worn-out VHS and unwind at bedtime with a chapter from the book.
As much as I love the a capella group Pentatonix, I was a little hesitant to watch this stunning pop medley based on my beloved Wizard. Would they get it right? Would I be disappointed? However from the moment I pressed play I was absolutely spellbound and by the end of the video I had chills. See for yourself:
This mash-up, arranged by Todrick Hall, features songs by everyone from Taylor Swift to Frank Ocean and even has a little bite of viral Internet humor (remember “Shoes”?). It’s smart, visually appealing and the vocals are wonderful! All in all, this is definitely a video we love.
