Tony Award winning singer Lea Salonga to join Il Divo on stage for three legs of the tour!
Today, Il Divo are extremely excited to announce that Tony and Olivier Award winning singer and actress Lea Salonga will be joining them as a guest star on stage for the ‘A Musical Affair’ World Tour shows in Korea, Japan and North America!! Best known for her Tony Award winning role in Miss Saigon, the nightly concerts will be enhanced by Lea’s powerful voice and perfect pitch in both solo performances and duets with the guys. Lea Salonga is a Filipina singer/actress best known for originating the Olivier award-winning role of Kim in the West End production of Miss Saigon, then later bringing it to the Broadway stage for which she won a Tony, among other awards. She was also the first Asian to play Eponine in Les Misérables on Broadway, and subsequently returned to the show in 2007 as Fantine. When asked how she felt about joining Il Divo on tour she said: “I am thrilled to be joining Il Divo as they continue their Musical Affair Tour worldwide. Having such a passion for musical theatre since an early age myself, I cannot imagine a more talented group to join forces with to share these timeless songs with audiences of all ages. And it doesn’t hurt that they are so handsome to look at too.” And the guys are equally excited to have her along for the ride. Sebastien said: “We’ve been following Lea’s extraordinary career for years and are huge fans. It’s an honour that we can finally share a stage and our love of music together for these legs of the tour. We’re looking forward to these enchanting performances.” If you are yet to get tickets for any of the shows, grab them HERE before they completely sell out!" Back to news index
