CMA Country Christmas
The CMA Country Christmas taping took place last night in Nashville, TN and Idina was a big part of it performing three songs! First ‘Do you hear what I hear’ with the kids, next an amazing ‘Let it Go’ duet with Jennifer Nettles (video below) and lastly, ‘White Christmas’. Make sure not to miss it on TV next month, CMa Country Christmas airs Monday December 1st, 8pm ET on ABC.
During the taping Idina announced she’s going on tour! There’s probably going to be an official announcement in the coming weeks since the special is supposed to air in December, so we’ll know more about it soon. So exciting!
Over 200 pictures of the taping are now in the gallery. Enjoy!
Let it Go with Jennifer Nettles
Poll Time: Past Theatre
Time for a new poll! What show, that you haven’t seen Idina in, would you have liked to see her live at the time? Not including If/Then because she’s still doing that one.
You can choose up to 2 shows this time. So Wicked plus one more, ok?
Read more about all these shows in our Theatre page, which includes links to the gallery so you can see pics of each production as well.
Idina to perform at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Sting, Idina Menzel and the cast of “Sesame Street” will be among the stars celebrating at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Macy’s announced Monday that Kiss, Meghan Trainor, Quvenzhane Wallis and Renee Fleming also will be part of the lineup on Nov. 27.
The special will air at 9 a.m. EST on NBC. Macy’s says more than 8,000 people will participate in the event.
Let’s do a little Throwback Monday and take a look at Idina’s previous Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in 2008, performing in the M&M’s float!
Slow week in Idinaland while we wait for the big surprise reveal! I’d ask what you think it is but I think the guessing game has turned to “when do you think it’s going to be revealed?” by now ;)
So anyway, while we exercise our patience and test our let it go skills, I’ve compiled a short list of some of the things that happened this week all in one post.
Canada AM Interview
On Wednesday morning, Idina talked about Holiday Wishes, Frozen and If/Then. Cute little interview. Click below to go to the interview site.
Halloween at If/Then
Everyone in the If/Then pit dressed as Idina for Halloween and Carmel Dean (If/Then’s conductor) posted the pictures to her twitter:
Random Gallery Updates
Mostly stage door pics sent by awesome fans (send yours!) and some other random pictures that I still have lying around.
Site Info / Help the site
I updated the “donate” page with other non-money ways you can help the site if you feel like doing so. Read about it here.
And I’m going to use this short tidbit here to say first, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has sent pictures and/or commented about the site recently, you’re awesome. And secondly, I’m slowing down the site work the next 6-8 weeks so if you send anything I might take a while to reply. Worry not, all the latest news and events will still be posted as they happen, here or on twitter.
To finish this post on a fun note, great video taken last night by @srodillado
Funny thing tonight @Ifthenmusical.@idinamenzel was talking when she noticed me filming and then commented not to focus on her bottom but top. She is a funny funny woman.
Before pics, and if you follow Idina-Here on twitter you already know, I’ve “reactivated” the site’s tumblr so you can follow us there now! Click here to visit and follow. You can also always find the link to both our twitter and tumblr to the right of our navigation menu.
As for pictures… I’ve updated several albums in the gallery, find the album list and links below. One of today’s addition is the If/Then Stage Door album, to which you can contribute! So far I’ve only added the very crappy pictures I took last month and a few others that aren’t fan pics. If you have stage door pics you’d like to share please send them to flor[at]idina-here.com and let me know date the pics were taken and how you’d like to be credited.
