Ukrainian “Let It Go” Girl Performs Again

Ukraine let it go

The worldwide response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine last month was demonstrated particularly strongly after one seven-year-old Ukrainian girl touched people’s hearts on social media with a rendition of a power ballad from the 2012 animated Disney movie Frozen. Young Ukrainian Amelia Anisovych, who was in a Ukrainian bomb shelter in Kyiv during the invasion, moved the entire bunker to silence while she sang “Let It Go” — and now that Amelia has made it to Poland with some of her family members and other Ukrainian refugees, the Ukrainian little girl performed the Ukrainian national anthem in front of thousands of people in Poland!

Caroline Bowman had previously expressed support for the young Ukrainian girl Amelia, and so had other¬†Frozen¬†cast members (including Idina Menzel, the Broadway star and acclaimed actress who originated the role of Elsa in¬†Frozen¬†and sang the original song “Let It Go”).

You can see the new performance by Ukrainian Amelia Anisovych in the Instagram post above; she performed the Ukrainian national anthem at a concert once she was in Poland. Had you previously heard about the emotionally moving “Let It Go” performance from this dear little girl, or is this the first time that you’re hearing about this Ukrainian child’s inspiring version of a song about hope?¬†¬†
