Let it go

Let it Go, as performed by the brilliant Idina Menzel from Disney’s Frozen. We went to see this film over the christmas holidays and loved it. Great story, fabulous characters and some wonderful songs. This has to be the standout one though, and has, quite rightly, been nominated for Best Song at the Oscars.

Now need to introduce daughter to Wicked, which also features Idina Menzel…

Oh, Oscar
