Idina Menzel to Receive Honors at 2014 Billboard Women in Music Awards

Ariana Grande and Idina Menzel will be two of the honorees at this year’s Billboard Women in Music Awards, joining Taylor Swift as recipients at the Dec. 12 event in New York City.

Grande will receive the 2014 Billboard Rising Star award and Menzel will accept the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award, a new honor at the awards event that’s now in its ninth year. Swift has been previously named the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year.

Tony Award-winning icon Menzel voiced Elsa in Disney’s massive global hit Frozen, in which she sings the film’s Oscar-winning song “Let It Go” that’s become a new classic in the Disney cartoon canon. With this song, she made history this year as the first singer with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.

“I’m so honored to receive the Breakthrough Artist Award from Billboard,” said Menzel. “This has definitely been an amazing breakthrough year and I’m thrilled and humbled by it all, including this wonderful award.”

Menzel is currently starring in the Broadway production If/Then and her Christmas album Holiday Wishes debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart, at its release last month.

“For Idina Menzel, who has influenced the charts for decades, 2014 was an utterly remarkable year by any measure,” said Min. “We are so proud to be able to give the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award to someone who so richly deserves it, and continues to both surprise and profoundly shape the industry.”
