Idina Menzel’s career is exploding. 2014 was a major year for the singer and 2015 will be no different- hoping to launch her into the stratosphere as an untouchable star. And wow, did she start off the year with a bang. Singing the National Anthem in front of millions is not a bad way to spend your weekend- it’s a terrifying way to spend your weekend. But Menzel did it with incredible strength- belting out each note in her iconic vibrato. And she got all the lyrics down, something we can’t say about every performance (cough cough Christina Aguilera). After an unfortunate note gone wrong on New Year’s Eve, Menzel has proved she can not just sing live but pierce the cold, crisp air with each note. We love you, Idina. And now we have another reason too.
