Idina Menzel really “let it go” during her New Year’s Eve performance, and her fans won’t let her forget it. On Wednesday, (Dec. 31) Idina helped ring in 2015 by singing the Frozen hit “Let It Go” at Times Square.
Apparently fans had some issues with how Menzel hit the final few notes of the single, but the singer could really care less. She recently took to Twitter to teach the haters that is she much more than just a song and we love her for it.
“How do you define success,” she wrote. “There are about 3 million notes in a two-and-a-half-hour musical; being a perfectionist, it took me a long time to realize that if I’m hitting 75 percent of them, I’m succeeding. Performing isn’t only about the acrobatics and the high notes: It’s staying in the moment, connecting with the audience in an authentic way, and making yourself real to them through music. I am more than the notes I hit, and that’s how I try to approach my life. You can’t get it all right all the time, but you can try your best. If you’ve done that, all that’s left is to accept your shorcomings and have the courage to try and overcome them.”
And let’s not forget the interview that she had with Huffpost Entertainment saying “‘Let It Go’ is not the kind of song you can wake up and roll out of bed and sing.”
You tell ’em Idina!
