A little Ukrainian girl is capturing the hearts of millions around the world with her adorable rendition of the Disney song ‘Let It Go’ sung in an underground bunker.
Ukraine has been seeing one of its darkest days ever and so it is so emotional to see a little girl courageously belt out a song in front of a group of people taking refuge in a bomb shelter.
As she sings the first few lines of ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s Frozen, the crowd of people in the bunker becomes silent and enjoys her sweet rendition. The video was captured in a bomb shelter in Kyiv, Ukraine, where people are taking shelter from the Russian attacks.
The video got more than 14 million views after it was shared on Twitter Sunday.

People commented on the video saying, “I understood literally everything she sang and I don’t speak a lick of Ukrainian that I know of, keep all of your heads up!”
Another user said, “Beautiful singing voice, but no child should ever be going through this situation in their lifetime.”
The video got noticed by Idina Menzel, who originally sang the song in the role of Elsa in Frozen. She tweeted, “We see you. We really, really see you.”

Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who co-wrote the music for Frozen was also moved by the little girl’s rendition and wrote, “Dear Little Girl with the beautiful voice,” she wrote. “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!”
Josh Gad, who had voiced the character of Olaf the snowman, wrote, “My heart is overwhelmed. These poor children. These poor people. I want to hug and protect this and every other child in danger right now and I feel helpless.”
This little girl may be in one of the most terrible situations of her life but her love for singing and for music hasn’t gone. She is encouraging everyone in the bunker with her songs and being a ray of light amid the darkness all around her.
Let’s pray to God for protection and mercy on the Ukrainian people. May this war end and may peace and joy fill the hearts of people there again. Amen.
