#TBT: #GoodluckBobby (Video)

Happy #TBT. To celebrate, we’re sharing an oldie-but-goodie post from Jim. When this post of Bobby Lopez speaking -- and singing "Let It Go" -- at TEDxBroadway 2014 went live on February 28, he hadn't won his EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) yet. And then that Sunday, he scored his Tony for Best Original Song for "Let It Go" from Frozen, making him the only person to win all four within a decade. Jim tells us the TEDxBroadway team...

TEDxBroadway Is Not a Theater Conference

I had an absolute blast at TEDxBroadway last week, and I hope that everyone who came to the event did, too. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, both at the event itself and afterward online. The people who go to the event and, of course, the team of volunteers and speakers who show up to do the event truly seem to believe in the idea that trying to imagine the best that Broadway can be is worth the time. To...

“Let It Go” Scores Tony, Bobby Lopez Gets EGOT

Last night at the Oscars, Bobby Lopez's "Let It Go" from Frozen was up against some stiff competition in the category of Best Original Song: U2 singing "Ordinary Love" from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" from Despicable Me 2 and Karen O's "The Moon Song" from Spike Jonze's Her. Not only did Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, take home the honor, but Lopez, 39, is the first Filipino American to win an Academy Award and the youngest...

#GoodluckBobby

Our first video from this year’s TEDxBroadway is up! It’s Bobby Lopez talking (and singing) about his transformation as a songwriter, which would be good enough, but there’s more. He’s nominated for an Oscar, and Sunday’s the big day. It also happens that he SINGS that certain, very well-known and frequently covered song in this very video! So what I want you to do besides watch this is to tweet it, post it, tumblr it, whatever, and wish him luck! We’re...

Bobby Lopez Sings Smash Hit “Let It Go” From “Frozen” at TEDxBroadway

Yesterday was an inspiring day at TEDxBroadway. Just one of the highlights was Bobby Lopez singing "Let It Go," which he wrote for the hit Disney film Frozen. The Tony, Emmy, Grammy and possible Oscar-winning (we'll know March 2) songwriter also treated everyone to some oldies but goodies. As Ken Davenport, one of the creators of TEDxBroadway, tweeted, "Bobby Lopez is singing songs he wrote as a teenager. And they are better than half of the stuff I've heard...

“Frozen” Songwriter’s On Fire at TedxBroadway 2014

TEDxBroadway 2014 speaker Bobby Lopez is on fire right now! And, ironically, it’s all because of Frozen. Not only is his song “Let It Go” sweeping the nation, but the show is now destined to appear on Broadway. He must feel like Pacino in The Godfather, Part III, where as soon as his work leaves Broadway, “they keep pulling him back in!” In this case, though, it’s a very good thing! I’ve been privy to his thoughts about his TEDxBroadway talk,...
