Lea’s Magic

On her recently-concluded anniversary concert, Lea Salonga told her audience that she aspired and hoped to sing like Barbra Streisand – pure, precise, no BS. I was lucky enough to see her rehearse for said concert, and I can tell you, from personal experience, EVEN during rehearsal, Lea’s gift of music was pure, precise and no BS. 

 

For those who were able watch her Playlist concert, she was impeccable. But I tell you, during rehearsal, when imperfections were noticeable, and even expected, Lea’s voice was still MAGICAL.

Below are two raw videos of the incomparable, and one of my ALL-TIME favorite theater actresses, Lea Salonga. Happiness is only real when shared. 🙂

Walt Disney said that “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” This is true. But every once in a while, your dream turns into a reality when you have a fairy godmother who loves you. (Thanks, Ninang, for this unforgettable experience!)

Angel Birthday

To the man who taught me how to love…

 

Dad, 

Love is unending, and the boundary of this mortal life is but a horizon, and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.

Happiest Angel Birthday, Dad! I love you to the moon and back!

 

To the living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return,
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea–
As you look upon a flower and admire it’s simplicity–
Remember Me.
Remember me in your heart.
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.

 

I'll always remember you.
I’ll always remember you.
