“It’s no secret that Barbra Streisand is a huge inspiration to me. And I was fortunate enough to… Do you know there’s a show called the ‘Kennedy Center Honors?’ It’s this big tribute show for these incredible, life-achieving artists. And this one particular year it was Barbra Streisand, The Who, Morgan Freeman, Twyla Tharp… And I was asked to sing "Don’t Rain On My Parade.” For Ms. Streisand.“ [crowd cheers] "Yeah, I was terrified!" —Idina Menzel

"I always like to sing barefoot but when I first started doing these dates with the symphonies, I of course thought I should clean up my act, being a Jewish girl from Long Island with a little bit of a trucker mouth. So I wore a gown and some high heels. My back was killing me, and I thought there's no way I'm putting on those heels. I went out there and I had the best show I've ever had. I was hitting notes I've never hit. I felt like I was being more myself, and I was funnier. I was just more comfortable, so that was the end of that."
~ Idina Menzel, Barefoot At The Symphony
