Fans of Lea Salonga paid her praises for her world-class talent through an anonymous message—and on a table napkin, no less.

Salonga is on her first United Kingdom concert tour and has been wowing fans from around the world. Her first show was on July 7 in Cardiff and the last will be on July 21 in London.


On Monday, July 15, the Broadway star shared on Twitter compliments she received while having lunch in Lytham.

The thoughtful napkin note said, “May we say that yours was the most breathtaking rendition of “I [Dreamed] a Dream” we have ever heard.”

“Truly beautiful. An emotional experience. Thank you.”

On July 14, she performed “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Miserables” as a surprise guest at the Lytham Festival.

Salonga’s UK tour was postponed after a skiing accident earlier in the year. It seems the wait was well worth it as she has received rave reviews for her shows in British publications. It is a full-circle moment for her too, as 30 years ago she went to London as an 18-year-old to play Kim in “Miss Saigon.”  /ra
