A Frozen Muse
March 03, 2014
Prospect Park Alliance supporters Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez do not need to travel far to find inspiration for their acclaimed songwriting career. When they were approached to write the score the Disney movie Frozen, they simply took a walk in Prospect Park. The lead single “Let it Go” then became a runaway hit, and now has won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.
No stranger to accolades, Mr. Lopez is one of an elite group of artists to have won the grand slam of entertainment industry awards—an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, known as EGOT—a feat he earned in only 10 years. He previously won Tonys and a Grammy for his work on the music for “Avenue Q” and “The Book of Mormon.”
