Video: Todrick Hall, from Arlington, is well on his way to taking over YouTube
He retells the story of Cinderella through Beyonce's music. Genius.
“Cinderonce” by Todrick Hall
It’s safe to say that Arlington native Todrick Hall has had a pretty good week. Thanks to his “Cinderonce” video (above) the former American Idol contestant turned YouTube royalty garnered shout outs from Entertainment Weekly, SPIN, and Glamour, just to name a few.
The video’s concept is simple: a retelling of the classic “Cinderella” story set to the tunes of Beyonce. In just the three days its been online, the video has racked close to 400,000 views.
Don’t think of this as Hall’s first success on YouTube, though. Hall has nabbed millions of views on his YouTube channel with video’s poking fun at everything from “The Hunger Games” to “Mean Girls.”
