But animated movie fans will recognize her as the voice of ice queen Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen.” She performed the film’s signature anthem, “Let It Go,” in 2014 at the 86th Academy Awards, where it won an Oscar for best original song.
Menzel will appear next in Lifetime’s remake of “Beaches,” channeling Bette Midler as entertainer C.C. Bloom. The TV movie premieres at 8 p.m. Sunday; Warner Bros. Records released the accompanying soundtrack Jan. 13.
Menzel has released six albums as a solo artist, including 2016’s “idina.”
Tickets for her Aug. 27 concert cost $53.50 to $104.50, and go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Jan. 27. (An artist presale starts at 10 a.m. Friday.)
