The duo's talent allowed them to surpass the success of their feature film debut when Disney once again reached out to them to write music for "Frozen." Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," Disney's "Frozen" was a commercial and critical hit and Anderson-Lopez's song "Let It Go," as sung by Idina Menzel, became the first song from a Disney animated musical to reach the top ten of the Billboard Top 100 in nearly 18 years. (A pop cover by Demi Lovato also charted.) Anderson-Lopez and her husband were awarded their first Oscar for "Let It Go," winning Best Original Song at the 86th Academy Awards in 2014.
