Let It Go, Traci Hines (album art) by TheRealLittleMermaid
Let It Go, Traci Hines (album art)
My Let It Go cover (music video & single) was just released yesterday! I'm so excited about it! I've been working on this project for over a year now-it was my most requested song/character/video since Frozen came out so I wanted to make it the best, most sparkly video & cover I could! This is the album art for the single, created by Benjamin Hines.

You can watch the Music Video on YouTube here:

(The single is on iTunes, Amazon, & Spotify now too)

Hi Ms. Traci!
I hope today you're having a wonderful birthday celebration.
I know you might not see this and other messages for awhile,
but I hope you continue to have
days of sunshine,
big smiles,
moments of singing frenzy
and good times.
Stay the talented, sweet person you are!
I hope you have a superb new year of life.
