Theatre favorites have been reacting and sharing on Twitter a video of a little girl in a Ukrainian shelter singing Frozen's "Let It Go." Twitter user @Ankita20200 posted the video March 6.

The post has received attention from Kristen Anderson-Lopez who co-wrote the songs for Frozen. In a tweet, the writer responded, "Dear Little Girl with the beautiful voice, My husband and I wrote this song as part of a story about healing a family in pain. The way you sing it is like a magic trick that spreads the light in your heart and heals everyone who hears it. Keep singing! We are listening!"
