An 11-year-old boy’s unbelievable voice captured the attention of Idina Menzel at a concert recently, and now he’s going viral.
Luke Chacko of Dallas, Texas, loves to sing. Earlier this month, he was attending an Idina Menzel concert in Grand Prairie, Texas. Menzel, the voice behind the popular Disney song “Let It Go” from “Frozen,” asked some kids to join her on stage to help her sing the hit song.
Luke jumped on the opportunity. He was the only boy on the stage.
“I know that boys don’t like ‘Let It Go’ because it’s a girl’s song, but I mean, songs are for everyone. It’s music, it’s art,” Chacko told WFAA.
Menzel picked him out of the crowd and asked if he’d like to sing the lyrics solo. Chacko, not shy in the least, jumped at the opportunity. He sang the song so beautifully, the audience erupted in cheers the entire time.
Then, Menzel asks him to sing it again.
“Can you all just shut up for a minute and let him sing it again,” said Menzel in a video shared to YouTube. “You’re not hearing all of the subtleties, because you’re screaming, and that’s OK, but now we’re going to do it again.”
Chacko repeated his performance and was shocked at the response he got.
“I sang it again, and the whole audience gave me a standing ovation. And I was like, ‘Wow. This has never happened before,'” said Chacko.
Menzel tweeted a link to the story, including the caption, “You blew me away Luke.”
