Lea Salonga Concert in Singapore Review
Yesterday was really awesome!  I got to watch Lea Salonga in Concert and I was also able to see her in person, just a few steps away.  The concert started at 7:30 P.M. at the Concert Hall of the Esplanade. I was with my friends Alex and Mhae.  Thanks by the way for the Orange juice and bread.

The Concert Hall was packed and I was glad that most of the attendees are Filipinos.  Lea sang some old songs, Broadway songs, her Disney songs and of course some Filipino songs ("Ikaw", her wedding song and a Jose Mari Chan song).  I was expecting for some classic Christmas songs but it was not included in her repertoire.  My favorites from her selection are the following:  "Taylor, the Latte Boy", "Rehab", "I Dreamed A Dream" and "On My Own."

Before the end of the concert, Lea called on someone to sing a duet for her Disney song "A Whole New World."  The guy was "scriptedly" prepared.  Anyway, he did great and Lea was impressed with him.  He was a Singaporean by the way.

After the show, we waited for Lea at the Ground level for some autograph and pictures.  I think it was more than 30 minutes that we waited.  We went to queue but we were informed that Lea will only do autographs from the items that they sell.  Since the merchandise and autograph queue are long, we have decided to just stand near the autograph table to take her pictures.  And we were successful.  Here are some of the photos of   Lea Salonga Concert in Singapore .

Hello! I'm Dwayne - the "scripted" guy from Lea's concert. Lea doesn't plan this part ever! Except to plan to get someone from the audience. It seemed somewhat staged because at her Carnegie Hall concert, I raised my hand from the circle, in the dark, and she always chooses someone from the stall. So I had to be dramatic. I also am a professional performer, so if you thought it was staged, then that could only mean I'm polished (to a certain degree) as an artist. =)
