This week’s “Song of the Week” (and the very first of my “Song of the Week Series” is none other than “Let it Go” from Disney’s latest and greatest motion picture “Frozen.”
First of all, Idina Menzel plays the character of Elsa, who sings this song. Anyone who knows me knows that this is a huge sell for me. I adore her and long to belt like she can (some days I feel like I’m getting close!). The scene in the movie has a great message about accepting yourself for who you are, even if you are different, and embracing it rather than trying to hide from it. Story of my life!
If you’re a Wicked the musical fan, you will notice some striking similarities between Elphaba’s empowering moments and Elsa’s moment here. In the movie theater with my in-laws and hubby, which was my first exposure to this song, I got that goose bumpy, giddy, emotional fulfillment from a song that I hadn’t felt in quite some time. It was nice to have that feeling back.
Most of my weekly picks won’t have this long explanation, but I felt this song should, because I love it for so many reasons.
