Kimbra's Disney video tribute a hit


Fans of Kimbra and Disney are going crazy for the singer's video tribute to Snow White.

The singer appeared on the We Love Disney album released late last year on which Australian and New Zealand musicians tackled classic Disney songs.

Kimbra, Dannii Minogue and Kate Miller-Heidke contributed to the record.

Kimbra chose to rework I'm Wishing from the 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The video clip was released this week.

"What happens when a VFX artist from Portland decides to insert you into a Disney classic as Snow White? #KimbrasWish," she tweeted.

The New Zealand native teamed up with filmmaker Adam C Sager, who has worked on TV shows Portlandia and Grimm.

Kimbra's portrayal of Snow White is flawlessly cut into scenes from the original movie.

She re-enacts classic scenes like sitting with the forest animals and discovering the dwarfs' home.

"I guess there's already quite a Disneyesque vibe to my own aesthetic in music. I've always been inspired by the whimsical nature of the movies and the soundtracks and also the visuals," said Kimbra in a behind-the-scenes video.

Her industry peers seem to love it.

"Craziness! Fans of @kimbramusic and Walt Disney's Snow White see here," tweeted Aussie musician Gotye, who worked with Kimbra on the hit song Somebody That I Used to Know.

Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman tweeted "This @kimbramusic vid is amazing. Tons of work went into this."

"Kimbra's Disney tribute rocks," tweeted British singer Natasha Bedingfield.
