"Let It Go" is a 2013 musical pop song composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and performed by American voice actor and singer Idina Menzel, which was originally featured in the soundtrack for Disney's 2013 computer-animated feature film Frozen.

Origin

The song was performed in the film Frozen[3] by American actress and singer Idina Menzel in her role as Queen Elsa (shown below).
