This week, Broadway legend Idina Menzel visits Google to discuss
her career, her personal life, and her new album "idina." She first
rose to fame for her role as ‘Maureen’ in the popular Broadway
musical RENT. Her career continued to take off when she
won a Tony Award for her role as ‘Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the
West,’ in the smash hit musical, WICKED. But it was her
role as ‘Elsa’ in Disney’s Oscar-winning film Frozen, the
second highest grossing animated film of all time, that truly
launched her into superstardom.
Menzel performed the film’s signature song “Let It Go,” which became an instant international phenomenon, winning the Oscar for Best Original Song and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. The track reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Menzel the first artist with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.
