For anyone who has had to sit through the Disney movie “Frozen” with their children, you have heard the song “Let it Go” by Idina Menzel. It is a catchy tune that is played on radio stations across the country and heard coming from the mouths of children quite often. It was the song most used in any of the trailers for the movie when it was out in theaters.
Now, a girl named Sarah has written new lyrics to the song to discuss her Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have embedded the video of the girl singing the song while also playing the piano at the bottom of this post. It comes from Upworthy, who found it at The Autism Site Blog. It is a mind-blowing new version of the song that you definitely need to hear. Take a listen for yourself and leave your comments at the bottom of this page.
Sarah said the following about her revision to the popular song: “This is a cover of ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen, but with changed lyrics to reflect how I feel about finally getting and coming to terms with an ASD — Autism Spectrum Disorder — diagnosis. It also goes out to everyone on the AS spectrum, especially the girls, and especially the girls that weren’t diagnosed until adulthood. This song reflects mostly how I felt growing up — being stared at when I had a bad meltdown, people not understanding me, etc — though most of it still applies to my life now. I hope it’s relatable to other Aspies/Auties!”
