International singer-actress Lea Salonga serenades her kababayans during her two-night concert-musical to be held on May 23 and 24 at the Philippine International Convention Center.
Lea...My Life...Onstage celebrates the most memorable moments in the life and career of Lea Salonga as it showcases her musical artistry. This concert-musical will provide the audience with snippets of her colorful history, especially during the days when she performed in Broadway for the musical Les Miserables.
Lea's special guest for her upcoming concert is Aga Muhlach, whom she considers as her favorite leading man. He was paired with Lea in the movies Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal (1992) and Sana Maulit Muli (1995). The latter earned for Lea a nomination for Best Actress in the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS).
The international singer says Lea...My Life...Onstage will be a musical journey wherein every song she will sing has some connection to her life. "It is a look back at the past with fondness as well as a peek at the present and future. Each song delivers a punchline. I am excited and feel lucky putting my personal life on public."
Her brother Gerard will serve as the musical director of this two-night concert. "I am very proud that my brother Gerard has been witness to all the highlights of my musical career. We made sacrifices for one another and he has seen through my eyes both my personal and professional view. Since we were children, music has always been a strong force in our lives," says Lea.
Presented by Enfakid and produced by entertainment and events company Ambient Events, Lea Salonga... My Life Onstage will delve into the different chapters of Lea's life, with images straight from the past to supplement a magnificent live performance accompanied by a full orchestra featuring songs from her various performances and records.
