LEA SALONGA on unnamed noontime musical variety show:“We deserve far better than what we’re being offered.”
The award-winning Broadway actress reposted the post of her brother, Gerard Salonga, who is himself a world-renowned orchestral conductor and musical arranger.
Lea wrote on her verifi ed Facebook account on Sunday, May 5: “From Gerard’s Facebook page. It was too good to not share.
“Was watching a noontime musical variety show, and my daughter very accurately remarked “they’re singing out of tune, and way too slow”. Producers and artists alike – please realize that there are a lot of people who actually listen, and are not merely dazzled by the stars.”
In the comments section of her post, Lea responded to a writer who also observed the same thing.
Reporter Pilar Mateo commented on Lea’s post: “Sabi ko na may makakapuna!!!”
In response, Lea pointed out: “Lagi naman eh! But no one wants to do anything about it!”
The singer-actress also commented, “I’d like to think that we deserve far better than what we’re being offered. Haist! Ewan!”

He wrote, “And the transfer is official! Part of the #kapuso network GMA

Andre commented, “I can Finally be your stunt double (minus the shirtless parts)”
Clint first did a regular TV project in 2016, via ABS-CBN’s daytime series Be My Lady, starring Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga.
In 2017, he became a part of ASAP’s boy group Coverboys, along with Albie Casiño, Luis Hontiveros, Tommy Esguerra, and Tanner Mata.
