A Granger mom took to the stage at Granger Community Church during a service Mother’s Day weekend, singing her own rendition of “Let It Go” from the popular Disney film, “Frozen.” In only a week and a half, the parody video went viral with more than 2.5 million views and just over 69,000 shares on Facebook, the church said.
Following the original tune, the church says the song was parodied as a tribute to all of the mothers in the congregation. During the performance, worship leader Sarah Olsen belted out the many joys and challenges of motherhood, such as mediating bickering children, getting laundry done and watching her children play sports.
The video has since spread far and wide, even in 150 countries — reaching from Iceland to Malaysia, the church says. With the church reporting roughly 187,000 interactions on Facebook — likes, shares and comments — and shares on Twitter, Google Plus and even Pinterest, the video continues to be shared with “Frozen” fans or moms who can easily relate.
The church said the audio has also taken over the airways on 96.1 Joy-FM, with more than 1.6 million plays.
The film quickly climbed to the top at the box office — grossing approximately $1.072-billion worldwide, the Washington Post reported. And with its two Oscar wins and Bloomberg reporting a potential sequel for the “Frozen” franchise, it doesn’t appear like the film — or any parodies — are going anywhere anytime soon.
