WHO IS SHE: Idina Menzel is a singer, songwriter and actress who became a star on Broadway in “Rent,” earning a Tony Award nomination in 1996. In 2003, she won the Tony for Best Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Elphaba in “Wicked.” Menzel starred in the Disney film “Enchanted” in 2007 and in the television series “Glee” from 2010 through 2013. Menzel finally broke through as a singer with her performance of the song “Let it Go,” in the Disney animated film “Frozen.” The song reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won both an Oscar and Grammy. Menzel followed up the success with the 2014 album “Holiday Wishes” which reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Although her debut album was released back in 1998, Idina Menzel didn’t experience true stardom as a pop singer until 2013 when “Let it Go” from the film “Frozen” reached the upper regions of the pop charts. Up till that point Menzel was primarily a star on Broadway and a television and film actress. But “Let it Go” re-launched her music career to whole new audience. On Saturday she comes to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to show off her powerful voice and perform songs such as “Queen of Swords,” “Small World,” “Bridge over Troubled Water” and “Let it Go.”
WHAT’S NEW: Menzel’s latest album “Idina” was released in September of 2016.
