“Let it go! let it go! Can’t hold it back anymore.”
Are just a few lines from Disney’s latest animation hit that captured not only kids but also adults? Not only is the great storyline the only reason for Disney’s Frozen being a block buster hit. It is to be noted that the songs used in this film also made it an icon. Original Soundtracks (OST) such as Let it Go will forever be part of history.
Surprisingly, the author behind the famous hit song Let it Go, as performed by Idina Menzel (as Elsa), is of Filipino decent.
The recent Oscars gave the Fil-Am songwriter Robert Lopez a prestigious award as best song on the recent 86th Academy Awards. Thus completing the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) collection in a row. Putting the 39 year old song writer in the line of elite group of people who won four top entertainment awards with the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Richard Rodgers.
Robert and his wife Kristen received the award at the Dolby theater on Sunday night dedicating it to their daughters Katie and Annie who served as inspiration in creating the song.
Let it go and Do you wanna build a snowman, were instant hits and the Pinoys even made eight different covers of these songs. The beki (gay) version making the most fun on it.
