Idina shared during her Breakthrough award acceptance speech, “I got to thinking about something my mom said to me. ‘You’re not really going to make it till you build a thicker skin. The universe won’t give it to you until you’re ready.’ [I'm always] told a Broadway singer can’t cross over….’Who are you? Who are you?’ [everyone wants to know]. And the answer is….I don’t know! I know I’m a cool chick, hard worker, good mom, pretty talented singer. It has taken me this long to realize that if you’re easily able to categorize yourself you’re probably [shaping into] someone else’s opinion of you.”
“I was given this amazing song ['Let It Go'] at such a crossroads in my life. Thank you for noticing me…I finally had my breakthrough!” she added.
FYI: Idina is wearing a Badgley Mischka dress and Donna Karan tights with Renee Sheppard, House of Lavande and Pearl Paradise jewels. Chrissy is wearing a Yigal Azrouel top and skirt with Jimmy Choo shoes.
