We just couldn’t ‘Let it go’ when Kensington mums was invited to the star studded Frozen sing-along at the Royal Albert hall. The Albert Hall exploded with an incredible 5,000 strong frozen fans of all ages singing along to Disney’s Frozen smash-hits ‘Do you want to build a snowman’, ‘Love is an open door’ and the globally popular ‘Let It Go’. With the Iconic Royal Albert Hall pack full with thousands of little Elsa’s and Anna’s look-a-likes we can see why Frozen has become the highest grossing Disney film of all time. Watch the short video clip here.
