Tyra Banks, actress, model, and aspiring singer. Well, she's not so much an aspiring singer as she is an aspiring karaoke buddy of Frozen's Idina Menzel. Menzel's rendition of 'Let It Go' recently won an Oscar after the song's popularity reached an all-time high following the release of 'Frozen' and the film's crossing of $1 billion at the global box office.
Tyra jokingly uploaded a vine video of her own rendition of 'Let It Go', complete with a Frozen barbie thrown into the mix. She tweeted the video to Idina Menzel, writing, "What do you think @idinamenzel? Does the cold bother YOU?"
Idina took it in very good humor, replying, "@tyrabanks omg. Hysterical. When we doing karaoke?" We've clearly got another budding friendship here, but considering Frozen's popularity, it's not altogether that surprising. Let It Go has become a cultural staple, and most kids [and many adults] have the song's lyrics committed to memory after watching the movie half a dozen times.
Considering that this is Disney's most popular and profitable film in ages, the movie's obviously found its place in pop culture, helped along by its Oscar wins and phenomenal box office. And I'm sure Tyra's and Idina's twitter exchange only helped that, what with both of the actresses' popularity among the Twitter-sphere and the Internet. Plus, Let It Go is so catchy that no matter where you hear the song, you end up humming the lyrics later. Obviously, the Oscar win for Best Song is well deserved, and helped one of its writers land an EGOT [the rare quartet of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony].
yesss when are you releasing new music tyra?
