The Il Divo + Lea Salonga Experience at the Resorts World Manila!


Are you also into musicals?! Akkk...Ako, if only given more days (or weeks!) in NYC, I would have availed more Broadway shows! May time din na nag Singapore pa kami ng sister ko just to catch Wicked!

Last week though, Resorts World Manila satisfied my hunger for musicals by bringing Il Divo to perform at the Newport Performing Arts Theater for A Musical Affair - a concert filled with songs from our favorite musicals. Best part? LEA SALONGA.

Si Paul kanwari pang unaffected, pero umiiyak sha ng buong concert, guys! Lol, joke, may sipon lang pala sha. ;p Haha!




My favorite (if not all!) was when Lea Salonga and Il Divo sang A Whole New World! Lea said i-bbroadway narin this Disney hit that she was part of! I can't wait for that! Got a bit nostalgic while watching this:


The charming boys of Il Divo!


I also enjoyed the beautiful images projected in the huge LCD. The background instantly sets the mood, favorite ko nung nag "fireworks"!



My heart melted when Lea sang Wicked's Defying Gravity! Iba talaga si Lea!

Too late for second guessing, too late to go back to sleep.
It's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap!

The show was divided into two parts, each of them had solo parts / talkies. Musicals ranged from classics like Memory and Music of the Night, to the more current I Will Always Love You. Sobrang sulit!


Ok, so I know this is an Il Divo concert, but my major LSS was Lea's Les Mis medley! Leaving you with this superb performance:
