WATCH: Auburn student covers 'Frozen' ballad

"Frozen," Disney's animated-musical spin on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen," was one of the biggest films of 2013 -- thanks in no small part to its soundtrack and the soundtrack's centerpiece ballad "Let It Go," which a lot of people love.

Last Friday, Auburn University student Caleb Hyles, 22, uploaded his own version of "Let It Go," with some pronouns gender-flipped and Hyles' deep-voiced vocals subbing in for Idina Menzel. But everything else about the song -- its soaring melody; its snow-flecked lyrics and echoing vowels; the sassy facial expressions -- remain wholly intact.
