    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Let It Go” is a song from Disney’s 2013 animated feature film, Frozen, with music and lyrics composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. The song was performed in the film by American actress and singer Idina Menzel in her role as Queen Elsa, after an ostracized Elsa abandons her kingdom when her magical ability to create and control ice is discovered by the public. Up in the mountains, away from confused and suspicious onlookers, she realizes that she no longer needs to hide her abilities, and declares herself free from the restrictions she’s had to endure since childhood. She rejoices in finally being able to use her powers without fear, manipulating snow and ice to generate a magnificent castle for herself.

    “Let It Go” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 86th Academy Awards, where the song was performed live by Menzel.


    “Let It Go” was the first song that Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez wrote for the film. The duo took inspiration from other Disney films such as The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast and various artists including Adele, Aimee Mann, Lady Gaga, Avril Lavigne, and Carole King. The song finally came together one day as the couple walked together from their home in Park Slope to nearby Prospect Park while they were “thinking from an emo kind of place.”

    Although unintentional, the song’s composition was pivotal in the film’s characterization of Elsa. Although Elsa was originally written as a villain, co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee gradually rewrote Elsa into one of the film’s protagonists after “Let It Go” was composed.

    “Let It Go” is overall in the key of A♭ major, but begins in the relative minor (F minor). The song is in quadruple meter, and has a fast tempo of around 137 beats per minute. The vocal range spans from F3 to E♭5
    Anderson-Lopez and Lopez specifically wrote the song for Idina Menzel, referring to her as “one of the most glorious voices of Broadway and an icon in musical theater.” Menzel’s vocal range was taken under consideration during the music’s composition.
