Disney’s “Frozen” on Kid Tune Tuesday…

I know, I said I wouldn’t be back here in a while. Unless…

I heard some great kid music I just knew you had to hear. And I have.  So I’m jumping on here quick to let you know about it.

This past weekend on a whim, we took the kids to see Disney’s new animated film Frozen.  It was fun, exciting, a great story line, lovely characters…and fantastic music.

Don’t get me started on how much I love Olaf the snowman’s dreamy “In Summer.”  I’ve been singing this in my best faux musical theater voice pretty much non-stop since we saw the film.  The kids pretend to roll their eyes and make their ears bleed, but secretly, I think they love it.
The soundtrack is so enchanting and moving that I didn’t even wait to get to my car in the theater parking lot before I had downloaded the whole thing on iTunes.

Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for musicals.  Maybe it’s because I hear songs and singing like this and regret not scratched that itch to try my hand at musical theater when I was younger.  Or maybe it’s because the songs are effortlessly woven in to a strong story line that sweeps me up in that warm Disney blanket of magic and wonder and amazement.  Seeing my daughter’s reaction, the large grin on her face and the twinkle in her eye throughout the songs makes the soundtrack even more enticing.

And who knew that the adorable Kristen Bell could sing?  Reading up on her, she went to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for musical theater, and it shows in her strong vocals.  “For the First Time in Forever” and “Love Is An Open Door” are two delightful songs that provide a platform for Bell to shine.

But the song from the Frozen soundtrack that makes my hair stand on end, gets me choked up and then has me scouring the internet for local voice lessons is Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go.”

Sung as Elsa, the newly coronated Queen with a icy curse, she flees her kingdom for refuge and solace in the mountains.

I mean, come on.  It’s Idina Menzel.  I dare you not to feel something as she belts out this empowering song.  Rumor has it, this is  an Oscar contender for Best Song, and it should be.

Luckily for all of us, Disney has released this scene from Frozen for my kids to watch over and over and over again.  The animation in this scene is incredible, as you watch Elsa create a breathtaking ice castle with her newly tested powers.  It’s even my son‘s favorite scene and song from the album.



  1. You had me at Kristen Bell! That girl has a dreamy voice. It’s awesome when a movie has the characters for the kids to love and the storyline/music for the parents to identify with.

    • KB does have a pretty great voice. And I agree, the movie was a hit across the demographics of our family! Have you seen Frozen yet?

  2. We LOVED FRozen! My girls, my husband and myself all loved it. I love the theme of sisterly love. It was the perfect movie to take our girls to see, especially with all the 6 & 8 year old bickering. And they just won’t stop singing the soundtrack and I really love hearing them sing Let it Go! It’s a good lesson for all of us. Let the bullshit go and just be ourselves! Happy New Year, sweetie! Here’s to much success and happiness!

  1. […] Not to brag or anything, but I used to have a reputation of being an Ice Queen.  And no, I don’t mean like Elsa. […]
