FEATURING ARIANA GRANDE, BILLY PORTER & JOSH GAD
28 NOVEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Tony® award-winning actress and singer Idina Menzel presents a sensational brand new album, Christmas: A Season of Love, out on Decca Records US/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. The album coincides with her starring role in Disney’s Frozen 2, which achieved record-breaking box office numbers following its opening weekend this month.
Produced by veteran A&R Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, The Pussycat Dolls), the album features chart-topping pop singer Ariana Grande, Broadway icon Billy Porter, Frozen favourite Josh Gad and Idina’s husband, Aaron Lohr. Christmas: A Season of Love sparkles with big-band energy, swinging holiday classics and brand new original songs.
Ariana Grande joins Idina on “A Hand for Mrs. Claus”, one of the new, original songs written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the dream-team behind Frozen’s award-winning smash “Let It Go”.
Broadway star, singer and Emmy® winning actor Billy Porter duets with Idina on “I Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”, a song originally made famous by Dean Martin. Here, it is a vibrant, thrilling number that showcases the best of both artists’ range and style. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a little Frozen – Idina is joined by friend and Frozen co-star Josh Gad, the loveable voice behind Olaf. They perform “We Wish You the Merriest”, made famous by dynamic duo Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.
Idina also brings her incredible voice to Christmas classics, such as “O Holy Night/Ave Maria”, “Winter Wonderland/Christmas", “Baby Please Come Home”, and “Sleigh Ride". She is joined by her husband on the romantic classic, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.
Idina Menzel originated the role of 'Maureen' in the Tony-winning Broadway musical RENT, and rose to international fame following her Tony Award win for her role as 'Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West,' in the smash musical, WICKED. Her voice can be heard as ‘Elsa’ in Disney’s Oscar-winning blockbuster Frozen, one of the highest grossing animated films of all time. The film’s showstopper “Let It Go,” sung by Idina, became an instant international phenomenon, winning the Oscar for Best Original and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. This new Christmas album is sure to be a hit with Idina’s legions of fans around the world.
