Anyone who wants an excuse to turn off the Disney channel to watch the All-Star baseball game on July 15 can just tell their daughters that Elsa herself is singing prior to the start of the game. That’s right, Idina Menzel, the beautiful Broadway star who just so happens to provide the voice for Elsa, the Ice Queen in Disney’s hit movie, Frozen, is going to perform the national anthem before the game begins. So it’s not a live performance of “Let it Go,” but there’s no denying she could sing anything and make it beautiful.
The game is being held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota next week. Menzel is slated to perform the national anthem prior to the start of the game, as well as a pre-game concert. Her presence is part of the honor being bestowed upon the winners of the MLB, Target and PEOPLE’s All-Star Teachers program. The All-Star Teachers were chosen by the public for their outstanding jobs in the classroom and for their schools. Out of the thousands of nominated teachers, 30 were chosen by you, the public, to be recognized at this year’s All-Star game for their gift in the classroom.
In the few days leading up to the game, Minneapolis is going to become a concert city. Also performing during All-Star week is Aloe Blacc. He’ll sing two of his hit songs before the Home Run Derby on July 14. In the days leading up to the Home Run Derby, Imagine Dragons, Panic! At the Disco and O.A.R. will also hold performances in Minneapolis. These performances range in venue, time and dates.
Dads looking forward to a little All-Star game action can just convince their daughters to hand over the remote controls and take a look at the woman behind Elsa’s voice.
