Idina Menzel celebrated the release of her new album with a free concert for fans at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday! Idina performed Small World, Queen of Swords, Everybody Knows, I See You, Perfect Story, and Like Lightning. After the party, Idina surprised fans at Industry Bar in NYC.
On Friday, Idina signed copies of the album at Barnes & Noble in NYC! Here are photos I took at the event. It was so much fun and it was great to finally meet Idina properly!
