WATCH: Child outshines Idina Menzel in singing ‘Let It Go’
Idina Menzel was at a concert in Texas when she called on children to perform onstage.
The Broadway actress, known for her formidable voice, usually involves audience participation during her shows.
After a performance of the song “Let It Go” from the Disney movie “Frozen”, she called up onstage a boy named Luke, and asked him if he knew what song was playing.
“What kind of question is that?” he said, to which the audience laughed.
Menzel explained that the boys she encountered in her concerts would tell her they preferred Justin Timberlake songs.
Luke appeared shocked and said, “Heck to the no!” As the audience cheered, he added, “I’m offended.”
The boy proceeded to stun both Menzel and the audience as he belted the chorus to the famous Disney song.
The “Rent” star asked him to do it a second time, to which Luke blew away the crowd with his powerful pipes and added his own inflections to the song.
