Straight No Chaser is a 10-man a cappella group specializing in Christmas songs; their offbeat rendition of "Twelve Days of Christmas
" got them a record deal.
They needed a female voice for this song, so they enlisted Kristen Bell, a singer/actress who voiced Anna in the Disney movie Frozen
, and gained a legion of fans from her starring role on the TV series (and movie) Veronica Mars
. Bell says she had a lot of fun working on this song. "The lyrics are smart and creative, and musically it was a blast to sing a cappella with Straight No Chaser," she said. "I'm excited to be part of what could be a Christmas classic for our current generation."
