Nearing the end of the show held at the MOA Arena, she talked about how she had been wanting to come to the Philippines for the longest time. She launched into "No Day But Today," a song from Rent, then asked the crowd to sing along with her. Immediately after that, she segued into "Let It Go," the instant classic from mega hit Frozen – with a few verses in Filipino.

"Bumitaw, bumitaw," she sang, at one point checking to make sure she had the words right and asking the crowd to sing along with her. "'Di ko na matatago / bumitaw, bumitaw / Isarado ang pinto/ Kahit na anong sabihin / Bumagyo pa man / Lamig ay hindi alintana." (IN PHOTOS: 10 standout moments from the Idina Menzel Manila show)

(Let it go / let it go / can't hold it back anymore / let it go / let it go / turn away and slam the door / I don't care what they're going to say / let the storm rage on / the cold never bothered me anyway.)

And here's the part where the Pinoy crowd sang "No Day But Today" with her as a whole. 

No day but today: a sea of stars as the Filipino audience sang with @IdinaMenzel. Now more than ever I can say that everybody here can really sing! (The impromptu part where she got random members from the audience proves that.) What a wonderful, touching and fun show.
