Idina Menzel is a Tony Award-winning, powerhouse multi-hyphenate—singer, songwriter, film and television actress, Broadway star and philanthropist. She rose to fame for her role as Maureen in Rent, and her career took off when she won a Tony for her role as Elphaba in the smash musical Wicked.

Menzel’s voice can be heard as Elsa in Disney’s Academy Award-winning Frozen, the second highest-grossing animated film of all time. The song “Let It Go” became an instant international phenomenon, winning the Oscar for Best Original Song, the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media and reaching no. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

A skillful songwriter, Menzel’s prolific recording career includes multiple cast albums and the solo albums Still I Can’t Be Still, Here, I Stand and idina., which reached the Top 30 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts upon its release in 2016.

Menzel’s many award-winning collaborators include Nile Rodgers (Chic, Diana Ross, Beyonce), Justin Tranter (Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez), Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), Sir Nolan (Shawn Mendes, Carly Rae Jepsen), Jim Eliot (Elie Goulding, Kylie Minogue), and more.

This past fall, Menzel released her electrifying dance project Drama Queen via BMG. A departure from what she’s released in the past, Drama Queen showcases Menzel’s powerhouse vocals through disco-infused beats and soaring anthems.


Listening to Idina Menzel sing is pure joy anywhere.
