The catchy song from the soundtrack of the new Disney Animated Film Frozen “Let It Go” is nominated for Musical Score in this year’s OSCARS.
The song is composed by Robert Lopez. Born from a half-Filipino father and a Scottish-American mother, Lopez wasn’t fortunate to take home the said award in the recently concluded Golden Globes Awards, but Hollywood insiders say that the said song is a strong contender in the Academy Awards.
Let It Go is currently enjoying the top spot in the US airwaves and is the most downloaded song in the internet these days.
In the movie, the song was sung by Idina Menzel. Menzel is the wife of actor Taye Diggs and more popularly known as the mother of Rachel in the television hit series, GLEE.
Frozen is about two sisters, Elsa and Anna. Elsa was born with the power to turn everything she touches to snow. However, due to an accident when they were little, Anna was stripped off of her memories regarding Elsa’s condition.
This is the first-ever Disney movie that true love did not involve a Prince saving the Princess, it was all about the love and bond between the two sisters.
Frozen is breaking records not just in the US but also around the world. It even broke The Lion King’s record for the top-grossing film on its opening day, making it Disney’s highest grossing movie of all time.
