While it comes as little surprise that Michele’s character Rachel Berry is covering one of the biggest songs of 2014, fans will quickly note that there’s something a little extra special about this cover.

Idina Menzel, who performs the song for the film’s soundtrack, portrays Rachel’s biological mom on the series. The two even memorably performed “I Dreamed a Dream” together on the show, among other performances.

It’s been said the two Broadway alums have a similar sound, and Michele’s cover of “Let It Go” is no exception.
