Idina Menzel: From 'Wicked' And 'Frozen' To A Global Concert Tour

Lots to talk about with Idina Menzel, including the world tour she's going on this summer which will take her from Seoul, South Korea to the Hollywood Bowl more than four months later.

Tony Award-winning icon Idina Menzel has a diverse career that traverses stage, film, television and music. Menzel's voice can be heard as Elsa in Disney's global box office smash Frozen, in which she sings the film's Oscar-winning song "Let It Go."

After Menzel's performance of the multi-platinum song at the 86th annual Academy Awards, she made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting. Menzel earned her first Tony nomination as Maureen in the Pulitzer Prize winner Rent, and won the award for her performance as Elphaba in Wicked.

Other notable roles include Rachel Berry's mother, Shelby Corcoran, on the hit television show Glee as well as starring opposite Susan Sarandon and Amy Adams in Disney's Enchanted. Menzel starred in her own PBS special, Barefoot at the Symphony, with an accompanying live album of the same name, and her highly successful international concert tour recently included a sold-out performance at Radio City Music Hall.

In addition to cast albums, Menzel's prolific recording career includes the solo albums I Stand, Here and Still I Can't Be Still. Her first-ever Christmas album Holiday Wishes, released October 2014 on Warner Bros.

Records, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Holiday Albums chart and is already receiving rave reviews. Menzel can currently be seen on Broadway as Elizabeth in the original production If/Then, for which she earned critical acclaim and her third Tony nomination, and performed "Always Starting Over" from the musical at this year's Tony Awards.
