Lea Salonga got irritated during concert?
LEA SALONGA – The theater actress Lea Salonga allegedly stopped performing amid her concert due to the loud ringing of an audience’s phone.
Best known for her theatrical roles is the Pinoy singer Lea Salonga whose talent was recognized all around the world. Among the most iconic roles she played is in the musical acts “Miss Saigon“, first on West End and second on the Broadway.
She is the voice behind the Disney princesses Jasmine in Aladdin (1992) and Fa Mulan in Mulan (1998) and was even tagged as the Disney Legend. Among the famous theater songs she sang are Small Voice, I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, I’d Give My Life For You, A Whole New World, Sun And Moon, The Last Night Of The World, Defying Gravity, and many more.
The past few days, she had been abroad for her concert and last May 18, someone from Arizona where she had been performing has contacted Gorgy Rula and told him what Salonga did when she heard a loud ringing from a phone while she is performing. Her concert was held at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Her concert ticket costs from 35 to 85 USD or Php 1,844.32 – Php 4,476.63.
According to Pilipino Star Ngayon, the Broadway Diva showcased a very impressive number but on her second song, someone’s phone rang that she even heart it. She said, “I heard a phone ringing over there and I will stop and ask you to answer because it could be emergency. Emergency happens and just go ahead and answer it. I’ll wait, that could be an emergency.”
Some people have seemingly caught her raising a brow over the incident but not showing that she is irritated. As much as anyone can remember, she already posted things about this before of how it is such a disrespect to artists who are performing.
Moreover, the audience were also told to turn off their phone or mute it in order to avoid distraction to performers.
