This is possibly the best adaptation of Cinderella to have ever been made! Former American Idol contestant Todrick Hall has created a YouTube musical of the classic story using only Beyonce’s music as its narrative. Watch the video here:
The Sasha Fierce twist on the fairytale is more than just creative. Everything is perfectly timed, and the Beyonce songs chosen all fit for the key moments in the story we grew up loving.
Of course, Todrick did spice things up a bit. Forget godmothers -- in this story, Cinderonce gets her very own Fairy Drag Mother, played by Shangela from RuPaul’s Drag Race. And instead of a boring gown, Shangela gives Cinderonce a Freakum Dress for the ball. Todrick also lends his amazing vocals to many of the tracks; he also makes a perfect Prince Charming!
We also have to applaud the genius in using Beyonce’s Countdown to signal the clock striking midnight, and the happy ending dance to Love On Top. All in all, we think this video would be Beyonce-approved!
