Ukrainian girl melts frozen hearts with ‘Let it Go’ rendition in bomb shelter



A young Ukrainian girl has melted ‘frozen’ hearts as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, a move that has been condemned worldwide.

In the video that has been widely circulated on social media and has since gone viral, Amelia gave a heartbreaking performance of the Oscar-winning Disney song Let it go in an air raid shelter in Kiev.

The video was shot by Marta Smekhova, who visited the bomb shelter to help him decorate, and posted this Thursday on Facebook saying that she recorded the video with permission from the girl’s mother.

Smekhova said that Amelia told her that in addition to drawing, she also likes to sing, and whispered to her that her dream was to sing on a big stage in front of a large audience.

“From the first word in the [bomb shelter] came complete silence … everyone put their affairs aside and listen[ed] to a song by this girl that only shone light… even men couldn’t hold back the tears.

“I showed this video to people in different cities of Ukraine, it was seen by foreigners in different parts of the world!”

Smekhova said Amelia “dreams of singing with you!”

“After all, you and I already know that nothing is impossible and if you sincerely dream of something, it will surely come true! †

Meanwhile, as Ukrainians continue to flee the country, NGO Gift of the Givers has distributed much-needed aid to Ukraine as Russia continues its invasion of the country.

In a statement on Saturday, Gift of the Givers said it had been invited to a private international meeting with representatives from Slovakia, Romania, the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, Croatia, a doctor from Kiev, surgeons from the US and Europe and one of the Chief Coordinators of Humanitarian Aid in Ukraine.

The NGO said the relief effort took place on Saturday, a distance from Ivano-Frankivsk, with further distributions to follow in the coming days.

Gif the Givers said those who wish to participate in supporting the people of Ukraine and the repatriation of South Africans can contact them directly.
