After conquering the world with her topnotch musical talent and artistry, Broadway diva Lea Salonga soon returns to Philippine TV as one of the coaches in the highly-anticipated singing competition The Voice of the Philippines.
“What you’ll get from me as a coach is honesty besides a Tony award and 35 years of experience,” Lea shared in a TV plug aired by ABS-CBN on Wednesday (Feb 20).
Lea, who started as a child stage actress and singer before becoming a Tony-award winning Broadway star in Miss Saigon, will sit in one of the swiveling chairs together with Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo and Rock Superstar Bamboo and will also form a team of contestants whom she will mentor and train so that one of them will hopefully be named the first ever “The Voice of the Philippines.”
“In the blind auditions, we would only use our ears and listen to the contestants. I want in my team singers who are pitch perfect. I don’t want them singing off key. I cannot teach being in tune to somebody—either you are or you are not. If you’re not, I’ll just say goodbye to you… I believe that there are lots of talented people out there,” Lea added.
Who will be part of Team Lea? And who is the fourth and last coach? Watch out for The Voice of the Philippines coming soon on ABS-CBN.
