MANILA, Philippines— Malacañang on Monday congratulated Filipino-American composer Robert John Lopez for bagging the Oscar for the Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

“We are very, very happy that Robert John Lopez, a Fil-Am, won the Oscar award for Best Original Song,” presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said at a media briefing Monday.


“We certainly congratulate Mr. Robert John Lopez, and I think his wife, for their collaboration in coming up with the song ‘Let It Go.’”

Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, is now part of an elite club, with only 12 members, who won the Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy awards.


Lopez’s “Let it Go” from the Disney animated film “Frozen” won the Annie, Critic’s Choice and the Oscars.
