STAGE TUBE: Lea Salonga Sings from MULAN, LES MISERABLES & More at PA Master Class

Broadway favorite Lea Salonga, who will soon return to Broadway opposite George Takei in Allegiance, just visited Bucks County Pennsylvania's Council Rock High School South to teach a master class with the choral department. Check out highlights from the special event, including her performances of "A Whole New World," "Reflection" and more, below!

Salonga is a singer and actress who is best known for her Tony Award winning role in Miss Saigon. In addition to the Tony, she has won the Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards. She was also the first Asian to play Eponine in LES MISERABLES on Broadway and returned to the show as Fantine in the 2006 revival. Lea most recently wrapped touring with Il Divo for the group's worldwide "A Musical Affair" tour. When not on tour, Lea is a coach on the Philippine version of the hit "The Voice". Prior to that, Lea garnered a Craig Noel nomination for Outstanding Featured Performance in the musical Allegiance at the Old Globe Theater is San Diego. She was also seen in God of Carnage in Manila, Philippines and Singapore.

Fans of all ages recognize Lea as the singing voice of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin and Fa Mulan for Mulan and Mulan II. For her portrayal of the beloved princesses, the Walt Disney Company bestowed her with the honor of "Disney Legend" in August of 2011. In 2010, she participated in the 25th Anniversary Concert of LES MISERABLES to sold- out crowds at the UK's O2 arena and dazzled as the hauntingly tragic Grizabella in a limited run of CATS in Manila. In 2002, she took on the role of a Chinese immigrant in a reinterpretation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Flower Drum Song, on Broadway, opposite Jose Llana. The Salonga-led Broadway revival cast album was also a top contender at the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Musical Show Album. An avid techie and gamer, Lea divides her time between Manila, Philippines with her family and the United States.
