Sweeney Todd Featuring Jet Pangan and Ms.Lea Salonga
If you are a close friend of mine, I’m sure you know that I’m a fan of Ms.Lea Salonga. I love the quality of her voice and how she clearly pronounce every words she utters.
The first time I met her at an Ariel Instashine event and heard her sing for the first time, I was teary eyed.
I’m so happy when co-blogger Jeman of Orange Magazine, asked me to cover the media launching of Sweeney Todd at Solaire Theater the other day.
You know, I don’t attend events that are scheduled late at night (especially if I am not paid), if it’s raining and when you invite me at the same day of the event. But for Ms. Lea Salonga I made an exemption on my rules.
I also expected to receive tickets for the show after attending the presscon, but unfortunately waley hahaha.
I have watched Sweeney Todd the movie featuring Johnny Depp before and I love it! I have a thing with musical movies and cannibalism hahaha
