Lea Salonga, who played Kim in the 1989 debut of “Miss Saigon,” and Rachelle Ann Go (2014 revival’s Gigi) sang a duet of ‘The Movie In My Mind’ on Monday (September 22), in celebration of the well-loved musical’s 25th anniversary in London. Salonga’s appearance at the close of last night’s show brought the house down.
On her Instagram account, Go thanked Salonga for letting her auditioned to “Miss Saigon.” Here’s the full caption of the said post: “I am still overwhelmed! Last night was just phenomenal. I still could not believe I was part of the 25th anniversary of Miss Saigon. God is amazing! Thank You.. To Ms. Lea Salonga who asked me 2 years ago if I was going to audition for Miss Saigon, salamat po… I didn’t imagine we are going to share a West End stage.. Haaay… You are an inspiration.. I will forever be grateful to all the people who helped me reach my dreams. Yes, dreams do come true… “
