Lea Salonga celebrates 35 years



MANILA, Philippines—Lea Salonga, international singing superstar, Tony Award Winner and the Philippines’ pride, celebrates her 35 years in the entertainment industry with a concert billed “Playlist” at the PICC Plenary Hall on December 6 and 7.

“It feels pretty darn amazing to celebrate 35 years in the business. I feel very blessed to have a career that I love and truly enjoy, and continue to love as the years go. It’s not often that anyone can say that. The best part of it has been the people I’ve gotten to meet and collaborate with, the places I’ve traveled to, and the music I’ve gotten to perform”, says Lea.

“Playlist” lets the audience in on some of Lea’s favorite songs. “A few years ago, we let the fans decide what I would sing. Now however, the fans will get to hear what I enjoy listening to, and hopefully get to know me a little better. They just might be surprised with what I choose!”

Mitoy, the first grand champion of The Voice Philippines will be joining Lea “It really wasn’t difficult to pick him as guest. The first time I heard Mitoy sing, I knew he was something special. A force of nature with that distinct voice. He was such a joy to work with on The Voice of the Philippines, and I’m only too proud of his victory.”

Aside from Mitoy and other special guests, “Playlist” will also feature the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra. Musical direction is by Gerard Salonga and direction is by Bobby Garcia.

“Playlist” runs at the PICC Plenary Hall on December 6 and 7. Tickets are available online at Ticketworld or call 891-9999 and the PICC Box Office.
