These are the revelations of Neri Naig and Bituin Escalante about Lea Salonga amid her controversy.
LEA SALONGA – Broadway Diva Lea Salonga faced an issue and Neri Naig and Bituin Escalante have these revelations.
A video of Lea Salonga has gone viral in a previous article. The uploader of the video claimed that the singer was rude to them when they asked for a photo after the play Here Lies Love. However, the post is now deleted after some reactions backfired.
In the video, the Broadway actress is clearly not happy to be ambushed. She’s been heard saying that she doesn’t know them and that they cannot be backstage unless they were on the guest list.
Many people online who have seen the video believed that the singer was not wrong to insist on her privacy. After this fan encounter fiasco, she reminded, “Just a reminder… I have boundaries. Do not cross them. Thank you.”
Amid the issue of the singer, famous personalities Neri Naig and Bituin Escalante made some revelations about her. They recalled their respective fangirl moment.
According to Neri, she can attest to how graceful the singer is towards her fans just as long as at the right situation. She never used her connection as the wife of Chito Miranda just to go near her.
She also narrated the one time she went to one of her concerts. As a fan, she patiently waited for her until she was ready and she never failed her fans including her. She said, “Naghintay kami kasama ng iba pang gustong magpapicture kay Ms Lea. Pagkalabas naman nya, inisa isa nya lahat ng gustong magpapicture sa kanya.”
As for Bituin, she shared a photo of Lea with her family when they watched her musical play Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in Singapore. And just like what Neri said, she was gracious.
“We did ask permission from production, prior to the show, if there was an opportunity to meet the cast. Asking nicely, and within respectful bounds, goes a long way,” she said.
