Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen,” is among the stars set to be at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Menzel will be among a long list of stars set to participate in the 88th annual event, including the cast of “Sesame Street,” Kiss, Meghan Trainor, Quvenzhane Wallis, Nick Jonas, Renee Fleming, and Hilary Duff.

More than 8,000 people will participate in the parade, The Associated Press reported.

Menzel has had a whirlwind year after the November 2013 release of Disney's "Frozen" and her performance of "Let It Go." Last month, she released a Christmas album, "Holiday Wishes," and presently she is starring in the musical "If/Then" on Broadway.

Menzel first became known on Broadway for her Tony-nominated role as Maureen in “Rent” in 1996, and she won a Tony for her role as Elphaba in "Wicked."

Menzel recently remarked about the notoriety of “Let It Go” in an interview with Time.

“It’s just a remarkable thing,” she said. “Usually you do a project and it has its moment. This just feels like it keeps going. Every day there’s some parent or friend with a video of their daughter singing. We just worked on a short for ‘Frozen.’ I’m always asked to perform the song.”

The “Frozen” soundtrack was first album to sell more than a million copies in 2014. The Oscar-winning “Let It Go” gave Menzel, who has been trying to establish a pop career since 1996, a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

"How can you plan these things?" Menzel told Billboard. "For years, I've tried to pursue a recording career. I've been signed and dropped a million times. People say Broadway actors can't cross over, but it seems society is ready to accept a theater person singing a song on the radio."
