IT’S become one of the most played songs around the world in 2014.

So when Kimberley Jane heard Let It Go from the Disney blockbuster Frozen being played out in the heart of Portsmouth, she couldn’t resist joining in.

Now, a video of the 21-year-old miming to the song has got more than 40,000 views on Facebook.

Kimberley was walking through Commercial Road and heard the song playing over loudspeakers. So she jumped up on to one of the stone podiums next to the fountain and began to mime the lyrics, while shoppers watched on in amazement.

She said: ‘I was just walking through town. The Christmas lights were being switched on. They had speakers on and then the Frozen song came on.

‘I saw people miming to it and I was singing as well.

‘I had nothing to lose so I just did it. My friend recorded it on his phone and put it online. I didn’t know he was recording it.

‘The music just got to me and I just let it go.

‘It might have looked a little bit stupid but it was completely impromptu.’

Kimberley, from Glasgow Road, Southsea, said she cannot believe how popular the video has been on Facebook.

‘I thought we would get about 10 likes. I think almost 40,000 people have viewed it so far. It was quite random but it’s just what I do.

‘I am in shock. People are saying I’m brave and I’m a hero. But I don’t consider myself to be any of those things.

‘I’m just a girl with a good sense of humour.

‘Guys in Afghanistan fighting for our country are heroes, not me.’

Kimberley admits to being a big fan of the film Frozen.

‘I love the film. It’s one of my favourites,’ she said.

‘I know all the words. I don’t know what it is that makes it so popular.

‘It’s more about courage and determination and that’s what I brought about in my performance.

‘There was a rapturous applause at the end.

‘Other people weren’t brave enough. They were just conforming to normal life.’

Perry Osborne, 21, from Meon Road in Milton caught the whole performance on his mobile phone.

He said he’s amazed at how much attention the video has received.

‘It’s crazy. I can’t believe it,’ he said.

Frozen has become the fifth highest-grossing film in box office history, making £1.2bn all over the world.
