This Pop Version of 'Les Miserables' Is All Sorts of Awesome!

We’ve seen many actors and singers take a stab at songs from Les Miserables, but this pop version of the musical is a super original one that we’re loving!

Natalie Weiss, a Broadway performer who has appeared in the stage production of the classic musical, performed a medley of songs from the show all with a pop twist during her recent concert in London.

During the medley, you’ll hear Christina Aguilera‘s “Beautiful,” Mariah Carey‘s “Hero,” and more woven into the melody of the songs. So cool!
