To help cheer up students a music teacher at Langley Fundamental Middle and Secondary School posted video of her singing a parody of Let it Go, a popular song from the movie Frozen.

“To postpone our show to next year is a disappointment to say the least,” said Kristi Robertson, who shared the music video on YouTube early Friday morning.

“We have been working non-stop since September including some weekend to make it amazing. Since all my plans were canceled for spring break I decided to make a parody to help bring a smile to the student’s faces that may be feeling a bit down as well as a message of staying at home,” she added.

The video also features appearances made by her cat, Luna.

“I figured they [students] would get a kick out her trying to steal the spotlight,” Robertson said.
