Watch Idina Menzel Receive Billboard Women in Music Honor

first_img View Comments On December 12, Broadway star and Frozen queen Idina Menzel received the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the 2014 Billboard Women in Music Awards. Check out her heartfelt acceptance speech below. “I have yearned for so long to be accepted by the people in this room,” she says, “never realizing that until I could finally surrender and just sing music that I love…this moment right here and right now would never happen.” It’s been a huge year for the If/Then star, but, according to Menzel, “It’s simply a personal breakthrough for me. It’s the irony of being given a song all about accepting who you are and unleashing your power.” If you’re not teary-eyed yet, take a look at the surprise tribute performance from the BroaderWay Choir, an organization she co-founded that organizes fine arts programming for girls in urban communities. You’ll probably recognize the two tunes. Take it away, ladies! Star Filescenter_img Idina Menzellast_img
