All hail Empress Idina!
The stage (and screen!) actress proved her musical icon status once again during this year's Olivier Awards when she performed a touching tribute to the late, great, EGOT-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch.
Open your ears to Idina Menzel singing Here is the World (above)!
She never fails to bring tears to our eyes and joy to our hearts…
Must be those Wicked witch powers of hers! We knew there was something magical about her!

We cannot begin to tell you how jealous we are of the late Marvin Hamlisch!
The Broadway legend, who passed away last month, was honored Tuesday in the best way anyone has ever been honored in the history of honoring… with performances by Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Aretha Franklin!!
Once on stage Liza told the 900 people in attendance at the famous composer's memorial:

On Tuesday, we lost legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch.
Since then, there has been an outpouring of fond farewells from friends and fans alike.

He was a singular sensation. We can't believe he's gone.
Legendary Hollywood and Broadway music-maker Marvin Hamlisch passed away at 68.
The Tony Award winning composer responsible for scoring The Chorus Line died this morning after a short bout with an undisclosed illness.
Marvin was also responsible for scoring several wonderful films including The Way We Were and Sophie's Choice.
Our deepest thoughts and well-wishes extend to all of Marvin's family and loved ones.
Rest in peace, sir. You were one of the greats!
