“There are about 3 million notes in a two-and-a-half-hour musical; being a perfectionist, it took me a long time to realize that if I’m hitting 75 percent of them, I’m succeeding. Performing isn’t only about the acrobatics and the high notes: It’s staying in the moment, connecting with the audience in an authentic way, and making yourself real to them through the music”, she said after her highly publicized gig.

Maybe she had trouble hitting the high notes of “Let it Go”, but if you heard her belting out the National Anthem at Super Bowl 2015, well she absolutely nailed it. Watch Idina Menzel National Anthem at Super Bowl 2015.
