In a world where Cinderalla reigns as the Disney Princess supreme and the object of affection from little girls around the world, one wonders how many more Princesses can swoop in and find a niche of her own.
When Disney’s Frozen
premieres next month, will the two new leading ladies be able to make their mark on fans like Snow White, Aurora, Mulan, Jasmine, Tiana and Merida have before them?
Sisters, Anna and Elsa (voiced by Kirsten Bell and Idina Menzel respectively) will be vying for the attention and adoration of many a Disney fan, but one thing they will have going for them; and it’s something they have in common with Ariel, Belle, Rapunzel and even Giselle, is a killer song.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Tony® Award-winning songwriter Robert Lopez, the duo behind 8 of the songs of the Frozen
soundtrack, have immaculate resumes which includes work ranging from Winnie The Pooh
to The Book of Mormon
The duo say
a defining moment for the film’s music was after they wrote “Let It Go.” "That was our lynchpin," Robert said. "We wanted to write the biggest, beltiest diva number we could channel because we knew we had Idina Menzel—who just knocks it out of the park—and we knew her character Elsa was experiencing something epic in her life."
Another Disney darling with ties to the project is Demi Lovato. Demi lends her voice to “Let It Go” for an end credit version of the song.
"It's so relatable," said Lovato said. "Elsa is finding her identity; she's growing into who she is and she's finally accepting her own strength and magical powers. Instead of hiding it, like she's done all her life, she's letting it go and embracing it."
Demi’s version of the song was released on iTunes today
following a social media “snow storm” that led up to its release, reported PRNewsWire.com
. They reported that Demi posted to her fans to post #FrozenDemi and within 10 minutes the hashtag was trending worldwide; two hours and 300,000 posts later the song was officially unlocked on Disney’s website
. The official music video for Demi’s version will premiere on Good Morning America
on November 1.
Anna will also have her character defining anthem with ""For the First Time in Forever."The extensive soundtrack (the deluxe edition will have 27 tracks) will be available on November 25, just two days before the films premiere.
