Taylor Swift knows how to “Let It Go.”
The hottest recording artist in pop music today recently completed the American leg of her “1989 World Tour” in Tampa, leaving her audience with a special cover of “Let It Go” that included its original singer, Idina Menzel. Swift also donned an Olaf-themed Halloween costume while being joined by Alessia Cara for the final American concert of the tour, the New York Fox affiliate reported this weekend.
All in average day’s work for Taylor Swift, who has made guest appearances at her concert a nightly occurrence.
Before heading to Asia on her next leg of the tour, Taylor rocked Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. More than 50,000 fans were estimated to be at the concert Saturday night.
Swift started the show wearing an Olaf costume, the popular talking snowman from Frozen. Then, Idina Menzel took the stage to sing “Let It Go,” wearing the familiar blue dress and cape from her voiced character in the movie. After singing the opening lyrics to the song, both she and Taylor stripped down into another outfit to continue their cover of Disney’s chart-topping song.
After singing “Let It Go,” Swift enjoyed the company of “Here” singer Alessia Cara. She and the Canadian singer tackled Cara’s hit to the delight of her audience.
Taylor joined company even more rare than her own squad this week, according to Billboard. The music industry news outlet reported that Swift and her album 1989 joined only four other artists who have had an album spend its entire first year in the top 10 for album sales. Taylor has sold the equivalent of 5.4 million albums in the compilation’s 52 weeks. The artists who join Taylor Swift on this exclusive list are Bruce Springsteen, Adele, Fleetwood Mac, and Celine Dion.
This year has been a banner year for Swift. Her fifth and most recent single to be released from her album, “Wildest Dreams,” debuted in August and has quickly become the next hit in a succession of more than a dozen for Taylor.
Taylor was also the talk of the town before and after the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Prior to the night, Swift and fellow female artists Nicki Minaj were engaged in a brief and well-publicized war of words on Twitter. The misunderstanding was soon resolved, and Nicki and Taylor publicly displayed their friendship in an opening performance. Swift claimed the most wins of any artist that night, taking home Moonmen for, among other things, Best Female Performance and Best Music Video.
In addition to her critically acclaimed and commercial success as a singer, Taylor is adding television awards to her mantle. Swift took home an Emmy this year for work as a producer on the video for the hit single “Blank Space.” The win was an unexpected one for Swift, who thought someone was playing a prank on her after the announcement.
Disney recently released an album of famous movie songs covered by current artists, the Inquisitr reported. On the album We Love Disney, several popular singers cover familiar songs. Actress Lucy Hale joined Rascal Flatts for their cover on “Let It Go,” the second time that the popular Frozen song has been covered in this ongoing Disney musical series.
Menzel is the voice behind Elsa, the queen in Disney’s Frozen. Menzel is the woman responsible for the original vocals on “Let It Go,” which has become one of the most recognizable songs in the world.
