Lea Salonga clarifies report that she is one of the Pinoy celebrities who will perform in the 65th Miss Universe pageant on January 30, 2017.
The Broadway artist's name was rumored to perform with her fellow The Voice coaches Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo Manalac.
However, Lea told her Twitter followers that she has not been booked to perform at the prestigious beauty pageant to be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
“I have not been booked to perform at the Miss Universe pageant. Plus, I'll already be out of the country. Someone has made a mistake,” she posted on her Twitter account last night, January 4.

In an interview with News To Go earlier, January 5, Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo mentioned Sarah and Lea among the local celebrities being considered as performers in the coronation ceremony to be held in the Philippines.
The government official said the final performers will be chosen by the Miss Universe Organization.
