We know from Kristen Bell’s impressive performance in Frozen that she has got some serious pipes on her and that may have inspired her to make the goofy 2014 song with the cappella group ‘Straight No Chaser’. The silly song was an ode to The Times We Live In Now and was called Text Me Merry Christmas.
