“Let It Go”

The Washington Post Sunday - - BOOK WORLD -

For bet­ter or worse, this power bal­lad from Dis­ney’s “Frozen” was ab­so­lutely in­escapable in 2014, and it scaled the charts in two sep­a­rate it­er­a­tions — the dra­matic ver­sion that ap­pears in the film (sung by the char­ac­ter Queen Elsa, voiced in song by Id­ina Men­zel), and a brisker ver­sion sung by plucky pop singer Demi Lo­vato. If any­thing, the ubiq­uity of “Let it Go” proved that fic­tional mu­sic is flex­i­ble: A tune that be­longs to one an­i­mated char­ac­ter could be sung by two dis­tinct hu­man voices.
