Arts Commons Presents: Disney Legend Lea Salonga: The Human Heart Tour
CALGARY – You know her voice.
Lea Salonga provided the singing voices for Disney’s Princess Jasmine in Aladdin and Fa Mulan in Mulan. She played Kim in Broadway’s Miss Saigon at the age of 18, becoming the first Asian woman to win a Tony award, and later the first Asian woman to play Éponine and Fantine in London’s Les Misérables. Salonga has become a legend in The Philippines, appearing as a coach on the country’s version of The Voice and The Voice Kids.
“When I was about 6, my cousin was very active in a Filipino repertory company, doing musicals and plays. Her aunt was one of the founders of the company, and she told my mom that there were these auditions for 'The King and I,' and that they needed kids. I auditioned, got in and the love affair started from there and just kept going.” Lea Salonga.
She continues to release record-breaking albums, she’s been named an official Disney Legend, and she’s made appearances on television shows like My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
The Human Heart Tour chronicles her career, with songs from her biggest movies and shows. Hear the magic in person in the acoustically brilliant Jack Singer Concert Hall.
