The writer of Let It Go from the hit movie Frozen is floored by the little girl who went viral for her rendition from a bomb shelter in Ukraine.
Kristen Anderson-Lopez created the track alongside husband Robert Lopez and was sung by Idina Menzel.
Earlier this week a clip of a young girl named Amelia, went viral across social media after being originally posted to Facebook by Marta Smekhova.
Amelia can be seen singing the hit track in Ukrainian while in a bomb shelter in the capital Kyiv. The adults sheltering with her all turn to listen, stunned by her performance, while they record the girl on their phones.
Smekhova’s post has since been viewed 100,000 times and quickly went viral after being posted across social media.
She wrote: “Dear Little Girl with the beautiful voice, my husband and I wrote this song as part of a story about healing a family in pain.”
“The way you sing it is like a magic trick that spreads the light in your heart and heals everyone who hears it. Keep singing! We are listening!”
But Anderson-Lopez wasn’t the only Frozen cast member who caught the video. Menzel also saw the clip and shared her thoughts.
The singer wrote on Twitter: “We see you. We really, really see you.” Many others have been blown away by the little girl’s rendition.
One user shared: “In the mist of destruction and death, this beautiful little girl brings light when everything must feel so dark. Amelia.”
While another said: “Imagine a little girl in a bomb shelter finding out the song she sang was heard by the songwriter & the artist who sang the song in the movie. The applause seemed to surprise & delight her. Sing on, the world wants to hear you!”
Followed by: “Your song has never been sung with such poignant beauty. My little [granddaughters] (who also have front teeth missing!) sing it over & over like so many little girls around the world, but Amelia in Kyiv is simply unforgettable. Let us hope peace can go to them soon.”
With a background in the creative and educational fields, Amelia Finefrock is freelance writer, singer-songwriter and nanny based in Chicago.
