MANILA – Filipino-American singer Jessica Sanchez performed the hit song “Let it Go” from the Disney film “Frozen” at the benefit concert in New York on Wednesday.

Dubbed as “#PinoyRelief The Benefit Concert,” the show aims to raise funds for the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda.

In a three-minute video clip originally posted by YouTube user Elena Heart, Sanchez is seen performing a cover of the song, which was originally composed by Oscar winner Robert Lopez.

In his own Twitter account, Lopez said he feels honored to accompany the 18-year-old singer as she sang his song.

Aside from Sanchez, the show also featured Charice, Jennifer Hudson, Pentatonix, Plain White T’s, A Great Big World, DJ Poet Name Life and Tacloban's own Reo Brothers.

Actress KC Concepion, who happened to be at the concert, meanwhile, posted a video of A Great Big World as the group performed their new hit “Say Something.”

According to Pinoy Relief’s official website, its mission is “to provide relief to victims of natural disasters in the Philippines - with the current focus being victims of Typhoon Haiyan.”

Created in the wake of the super typhoon which struck the Philippines in November, the organization “was formed to generate awareness, raise funds and create sustainable recovery programs for the victims and communities affected by this devastating natural disaster.”
