Idina Menzel interview

Seacrest interviews Menzel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her hit single Let It Go. 

I’m not sick of it, honestly I wanted a hit song my whole life. “I’ve been around trying to do my thing and I’ve had my ups and downs, and I never would have thought that this song from this movie would help break these barriers and up my profile.
