A Ukrainian girl named Amelia who was famous for singing ‘Let it Go’ in a bomb shelter in Kyiv has arrived in Poland safely.
The seven-year-old was filmed performing the song from Disney’s Frozen while sheltering from a Russian attack, and the video, which was originally posted on Facebook, has since garnered millions of views.
Amelia is currently in Poland with her grandmother and siblings after running away Ukraine while the country is still at war.
A woman who visited the shelter to help decorate it last week shared the video after Amelia told her she wanted to sing “on a big stage” and in front of an audience.
In the video, the country’s blue and white flag can be seen behind Amelia as she performs the song in Ukrainian.
Actress Idina Menzel – who plays Elsa, the character performing the song in the movie Frozen – watched the video and tweeted Sunday night: “We see you. We really, really see you.”
The video was first posted by Marta Smekhova, who says: “People put their work aside and listen to a song by this smiling girl… Even men can’t hold back their tears. “.
She said the video was shot and shared with the girl’s mother’s permission.
Since then, it has been retweeted on Twitter, where it has more than 5 million views, and other social media platforms.
Amelia is one of nearly 2 million Ukrainians who have fled the country as the war with Russia intensifies.
Most recently, seven bodies were found in the rubble of a school in the Mykolayiv region of southern Ukraine after it was hit by a Russian air strike, Ukrainian forces said.
According to the UN, there have been 1,581 civilian casualties – including 42 children – in Ukraine so far, although experts say this is likely a low number.
