I have to say as soon as I entered the room I could feel the atmosphere grow. Everyone was relaxed and at ease; the best atmosphere if you want my opinion. Again I had never been to a show like this so I had no idea what to expect. When La Voix came bursting into the room singing “Let It Go” from the iconic Frozen… Well it would be an understatement to say it was amazing. As…
