Idina Menzel Sings Rent's 'Seasons of Love' Solo for Charity - WATCH NOW!

Idina Menzel reads the lyrics to “Seasons of Love” while singing the female solo to help benefit charity after a performance of her Broadway show If/Then on Saturday (April 12) in New York City.

During this time of the year, all the shows on Broadway raise money for a charity called Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and every show does something creative to get the audience members to shell out the big bucks.

Idina and her If/Then co-star Anthony Rapp both appeared in the original cast of the beloved musical Rent and they got the audience to donate $8,000 for an impromptu performance of “Seasons of Love” with the two stars doing the solos!

Make sure to go see If/Then right now on Broadway to see these guys live.

Idina Menzel on John Travolta's Oscars Name Flub: Let It Go!

Idina Menzel performs alongside her If/Then co-star James Snyder during an appearance on The Today Show on Thursday morning (April 3) in New York City.

The 42-year-old entertainer promoted her new Broadway show and also talked about the moment at the Oscars when John Travolta messed up her name, but said she doesn’t want to talk about it much more in the future.

“I heard it. I did. I don’t want to keep saying it because I don’t want him to feel worse or anything because he sent lots of apologies,” Idina said. “It threw me for like eight seconds. I had done this whole preparation to make sure that I really was in my body and didn’t get too nervous.”

“So I was picturing my [4-year-old] son Walker, I thought, ‘Let me just sing it to him’ like we do in the bathtub … and [Travolta] said my name like that and I was like, ‘Did that just happen?’” Idina added. “Then the orchestra started and then for eight seconds, I said, ‘Get your s— together! And like, stop worrying about your name and sing this song!’ … So it took me about eight seconds to get over myself.”

FYI: Idina is wearing an alice + olivia blazer, Monika Knutsson earrings, and a lia sophia ring on her right hand.

Frozen's Idina Menzel: 'I'm a 42-Year-Old Woman Who Likes to Talk About Sex'

Idina Menzel looks gorgeous while posing for a photo shoot for her Billboard magazine cover story, on newsstands now.

Here is what the Frozen actress had to share with the mag:

On her live performances not being appropriate for kids: “I’m a 42-year-old woman who likes to talk about sex, and I’ve got a foul mouth. Moms bring their little 6-year-olds to my shows in Elphaba costumes or Elsa costumes, and I have a responsibility. Sometimes that’s challenging to figure out how to continue to be myself even though there’s a little girl in the front row.”

On her new found stardom: “I feel grateful people are giving me a shot. It’s not something I take lightly. Maybe people didn’t know me before John Travolta f-ed up my name, but I’m not going to chase anything anymore. … Every time I’ve ever tried to do that, I’ve missed it. When you sit back and you just do what you love, things happen.”

On sticking with her new show If/Then: “I’m committed to my show. I’m not going to abandon a show that I’ve been a part of creating for years… I’m a little concerned that critics will use me as a target. Just because there might be a bunch of young girls waiting outside doesn’t take away from this amazing piece of work.”
