Lea Salonga, vocalist
Powerful voice, perfect pitch, and grappling personality aren't enough to describe the life and career of Lea Salonga. From her time spent lightening the stages of Broadway to her captivating vocals in Disney hits Mulan and Aladdin, Salonga has shown that no challenge is too great when it comes down to her vocal capabilities.

Born and raise in Manila, Phillipines, this vocal queen most recently starred in Allegiance on Broadway and has been touring the U.S. thus far in 2016. She made her Broadway debut as Kim in Miss Saigon in 1991 and reprised the role several times in the years to follow. She then starred in the 1993 opening of Les Misérables as Éponine, utilizing her unique voice and pitch to wow with "I Dreamed a Dream" and "On My Own." She returned to Broadway with more minor shows including Flower Drum Song and Something Good: A Broadway Salute to Richard Rogers on his 100th Birthday.

Aside from her experiences in major roles on Broadway, Lea Salonga also provided the vocals for 1990s Disney favorites, Aladdin and Mulan. With thoughtful melodies and vocals provided in "Reflection" and "A Whole New World," children and parents alike have been captivated by Salonga's Disney performances for over two decades. Her eclectic range in music has allowed her career to blossom over the last 25 years, wowing audiences worldwide and taking on the most difficult notes in style.
