Lea Salonga once again proves she has a heart of gold.
Romeo Salazar went on Facebook and shared how the singer was so generous to his friend.
One of Salazar’s friends from London messaged him, talking about how she wanted to cheer up her friend who recently lost her husband to cancer back in February.
The widow and her late husband were big fans of Salonga. Salazar’s friend was planning on having her widow friend meet up with her idol but it didn’t happen since the meet and greet was fully booked.
“They are both huge fans of Lea Salonga, so she is treating her tonight to Lea’s concert in York. She wanted to surprise her friend with a scheduled short meet and greet with Lea after, but unfortunately, could not secure a spot anymore as it was fully booked.”
Salazar then proceeded to try and fulfill his friend’s wish and sent the singer a message.
“I told my friend am not promising anything as i know how busy or stressful thing like this for Lea is, but i will give it a shot and ask her.”
To Salazar’s surprise, the singer replied and told him to tell a friend to arrange everything and put both his friend and the widow on the guest list.
“Within minutes of messaging her, Lea came back to me and instructed me to tell my friend Wendy Pearse that she will arrange it and will put her and her friend’s names on the guest list.
“Now you know why Lea Salonga is much loved and a genuine role model for many in our business. Maraming salamat ulit Lea!” he concluded.
Along with all the awards she won throughout her career, Lea Salonga was the first Filipino to win a Tony Award and the first Filipino to be signed to Atlantic Records.
Salonga will be coming back to television as a coach for the fourth season of The Voice Kids.
We can remember her as the first ever winner of The Voice Kids franchise here in the Philippines. From collecting garbages for a living, Lyca Gairanod has come a long way.
She has now a recording contract with MCA Music Inc. and a house and lot.
Lyca also appeared in the teleserye Hawak Kamay and became a finalist of the hit talent show Your Face Sounds Familiar. We can recall her as the rugged child who belts higher notes than her. The Caviteña has released her debut album in 2015 entitled Puwede Nang Mangarap under Decca Records.
Now, she’s setting fire on the internet after posting recent photos on her Instagram account @lycagairanod.1. Netizens were #shookt after noticing evident changes on her appearance. Flaunting her new blonde highlights, the rugged child is no longer existing.
The 12-year-old singer was once part of the Team Sarah on The Voice Kids.
Her life story was featured in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.
You can see her now on ASAP performing every now and then.
Major look transformation, isn’t it?

The Philippines is lucky to have found the newest artist who offers listeners a fresh and unique taste of music. The newest sensation, Darren Espanto has now marked his stand in the music industry. He needed an instrument that would ignite the spark for his pure talent in singing and this happened by joining The Voice Kids which landed him to second place bringing him to numerous opportunities here and abroad.
For a very young age, he is already a regular on Twitter’s trending topic list and has had millions views on YouTube. Darrenatics is what’s called for solid fans who have supported him from the blind audition to this very important event in his career, now launching his first solo album under MCA Music, “Darren.”
The album consists of nine tracks including the piece “Domino” which he sang during the blind audition. His carrier single “In Love Ako Sa ‘Yo” composed by Vehnee Saturno, along with other Tagalog songs such as “Ewan Ko, “”My Girl,” and “Ah! Basta Gusto Kita.” All songs are memorable to Darren, including pieces that were recorded in Canada and written by foreign composers, Keith Martin and Deon Hairston’s “You Are The Only One”; Adrian & Lucas Rezza and Carvin Winans’s “I Believe in Me,” Filipino-American composer Brad Go, ”Makin’ Moves”; and our own composer Kennard Faraon with “Stuck.” A magazine-like album is offered to his fans—a thirty eight-page all Darren Espanto. A message and dedication with his personal touch included to those who love him since the beginning.
Darren’s musical approach to his album conveys a rising pop superstar. He has the international singer “feel,” who can effortlessly reach high notes and be very flexible with every song that he sings. Listeners can expect dance and ballad songs from this talented kid who can also sing and dance to his own music.
His young age matches his playful sound and shows a glimpse of a bright future ahead of him. A young one who tells stories about puppy love, attraction to deep and serious love coming from Darren himself as he narrated one of his songs saying; “it’s actually about a guy liking another person and he’s always constantly thinking about her, kaya may mga lyrics po na ‘kahit sa pagtulog ko, ikaw ang nasaisip ko. ‘” We should find out which song it is; know and enjoy more of his album available at Astroplus and Odyssey stores.
