Frozen star Idina Menzel has voiced her support for the young Ukrainian girl filmed singing Let It Go in a bunker.

The girl — believed to be named Amelia, whose age is not known — went viral on social media after a video of her singing the hit song from the Disney movie for the people sharing the Ukraine bomb shelter with her, as Russian forces continue to attack the country.

Menzel, who voices Elsa in the Frozen films, shared the video on Twitter and wrote: "We see you. We really, really see you," along with a blue and yellow heart representing the colours of the Ukraine flag."
