Let It Go | #MusicMonday

As its Monday, that means its time for a new song.
This weeks choice of song is from one of my all time favourite films, Frozen! It was hard to chose only one song but in the end I settled for....

'Let it go' by Elsa (Voice by Indina Menzel) 

This is a song from Disney's 2013 animated film, Frozen. This particular song was performed by American actress and singer, Indina Menzel as her role, Queen Elsa.
The song starts when Elsa's magical ability to create and control ice is discovered, she leaves the castle and heads up in the mountains away from everyone. She realises that she no longer needs to hide her powers. She "declares herself free" from the set backs and restrictions she had to go through since childhood. 
During the song she uses her powers without fear, manipulating snow and ice to form a breathtaking castle for herself, away from the world.

"Let It Go" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 86th Academy Awards, where the song was preformed live by Indina Menzel. 
It is the first song ever, from a Disney animated musical to reach the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1995 when "Colours of the Wind" sung by Vanessa Williams from Pocahontas reached number four.
This is also Menzel's first single to reach the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first Tony Award winner for acting to ever get in the top 10!

On December 6th 2013, Walt Disney Animation Studios released a video of the full "Let it Go" sequence as seen in the movie which has over 200,000 views!

If you haven't seen this film already, I would definitely recommend it as it is AMAZINGGGG!

Hope you liked this weeks song choice and I will see you next Music Monday with another brand new song!
