Vocalist and Pixar animator Nick Pitera is known for his one man a capella covers and various other solo vocal pursuits on YouTube. He first grabbed my attention back in 2007, with his cover of “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin (yes, he sings both the male and female parts).
As we are in the weeks leading up to Halloween, YouTube channel Oh My Disney has treated us to Nick Pitera’s one man a acapella of Danny Elfman’s “This Is Halloween” from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I cannot post this cover of “This is Halloween” without including the Portal version “This Is Aperture” that surfaced early 2012. The jury is out as to which is better, but of course it is difficult to top the original.
