Lea Salonga, Gerard Salonga appalled by those "singing out of tune" in noontime musical variety show

Lea Salonga on unnamed noontime musical variety show: "We deserve far better than what we’re being offered."


Lea Salonga lamented the poor rendition of a production number in an unnamed noontime musical variety show.  

The award-winning Broadway actress reposted the post of her brother, Gerard Salonga, who is himself a world-renowned orchestral conductor and musical arranger. 

Lea wrote on her verified Facebook account on Sunday, May 5: "From Gerard’s Facebook page. It was too good to not share. 

"Was watching a noontime musical variety show, and my daughter very accurately remarked "they're singing out of tune, and way too slow". Producers and artists alike - please realize that there are a lot of people who actually listen, and are not merely dazzled by the stars."

In the comments section of her post, Lea responded to a writer who also observed the same thing. 

Reporter Pilar Mateo commented on Lea's post: "Sabi ko na may makakapuna!!!"

In response, Lea pointed out: "Lagi naman eh! But no one wants to do anything about it!"
