Canyons Idol Shines On “GMA,” “The Queen Latifah Show”

Even the coldest heart could have been warmed by the dulcet tones of Lexi Walker, who appeared Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014 on “Good Morning America” to participate in a national sing-a-long of “Let It Go” from the Disney smash “Frozen.” 
Clad in a shimmering white dress, Walker, who gained local notoriety as the 2013 Canyons Idol, knocked out her solos with the style and ease of a veteran Broadway star. At the Times Square performance, Walker and two other singers fronted the New York City Children’s Chorus.
‘GMA’ was really fun,” Walker said in text message to Canyons District late Wednesday. “It was great to hear a lot of different people sing their versions of the song, and I felt like I blended in so I wasn’t nervous at all.”
The live performance kicked off with a solo by stage and film actress Idina Menzel, who voices the “Frozen” character Princess Elsa. Menzel, who won a Tony Award for originating the role of Elphaba in “Wicked,” will sing “Let It Go” on the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 2.
The tune, which has been nominated for Best Original Song, has become a worldwide hit, and has prompted many aspiring singers to record their renditions. Videos of a few – including one featuring Walker with Alex Boye’ and the One Voice Children’s Choir – have gone viral. The video with Boye’ has logged more than 20 million views.
But her trip to the Big Apple didn’t end with “GMA.” She also appeared on “The Queen Latifah Show.”

Dressed in a jean jacket and a flowing pink skirt, Walker belted out “Let It Go” for the studio audience.
“Queen Latifah is very cool, and I like her a lot,” Walker said. “Everyone there was very professional, and I loved how organized it was.”
Walker has become a well-known performer in Utah since she turned heads with her “Star-Spangled Banner” at the outset of Canyons District Night with Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. The YouTube video of her performance has been viewed more than 400,000 times. 
She also has performed the national anthem at the July Fourth Stadium of Fire concert-and-fireworks show with pop star Kelly Clarkson; at USANA’s 2013 International Conference; and at the “We Are Hope” concert at the LDS Conference Center.
