Idina to perform at the MLB All-Star game

We can’t promise a stadium sing-along of “Let It Go,” but Idina Menzel will definitely hit it out of the park next Tuesday, July 15, when she performs at the All-Star baseball game in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Broadway star and Frozen actress will sing the national anthem – and give a pre-game concert – at Target Field, helping to honor the winners of Target, PEOPLE and Major League Baseball’s All-Star Teachers program before the big game.

Joining Menzel in the All-Star Week fun is up-and-comer Aloe Blacc, who will perform “Wake Me Up” and “Can You Do This” prior to the July 14 Home Run Derby. A few days before that, over the course of the weekend, Panic! At the Disco, O.A.R. and Imagine Dragons will entertain fans, too.

The All-Star Game airs at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX on Tuesday, July 15.


Changing of the Guard Part Troix

Changing of the Guard Part Troix

Hi everyone! Erin here – your old webmaster (2009-2011) and now Idina’s Digital Strategy Manager.

As many of you may remember, periodically we change Webmasters at Idina-Here to keep things fresh and focused; new blood, if you will. In 2009, I inherited this site from its amazing founder, Kim. In 2011, I passed it to my good and longtime friend, Jill. This time has come again.

I want to thank Jill for her contributions and dedication to the site the last few years (2011-2014). She is a great friend and fan and the site wouldn’t have survived without her.

Now, the fresh blood: Flor is our new webmaster. (Group: Hi, Flor!) She has been a fan for many years and is an experienced webmaster and website designer. In fact, she’s responsible for many of the designs you see right here on Idina-Here! I trust she will continue improving this great site to keep it the amazing resource the three of us have built.

Stay tuned for some exciting changes and updates – and Flor’s first post!

Updates, updates and more updates!

Updates, updates and more updates!

Whew, lots going on!

There’s a nice little article on USA Today about handling Broadway and motherhood.


And Idina has been selected as one of Variety’s Power of Women New York honorees.

Idina Menzel on summer camp of A Broader Way: “It’s about using the arts to help girls find their own voice,” says Menzel. “There’s a lot of young women who don’t know how to use their voice literally and figuratively. These girls get to be the authors of their own life.”

“I loved being able to reinvent myself during the summer, and not be judged by the same group of kids I saw in school.”
