Broadway World: Frozen Team to Produce Oscar Number

Robert LopezThere’s been a lot of concern expressed over the lack of diversity in this year’s Academy Award nominations.

Finally there’s some good news on the diversity front.

Broadway World is reporting that Robert Lopez and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez are writing a multi-media musical sequence for the Oscars.

Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris will perform the number.

“We love the Oscars® and have always been huge Neil Patrick Harris fans, so when he asked us to write him a song for this year’s show we said, ‘Yes!’ before he could finish the sentence – it’s possible he may have been asking us for something else,” said the Lopezes. “We are having so much fun collaborating, and have even enjoyed weaving our experience as Oscar nominees into the song.”

The Lopez’ are best known for their hit Let It Go from the movie Frozen.  Lopez is one of the chosen few known for having won the EGOT–Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony. Besides Frozen, the Filipino American’s other big hits are Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.
