With her in the lead role, the show garnered multiple wins and nominations, including “Lead Actress in a Musical” from the LA Stage Alliance’s Ovation Awards. The Salonga-led Broadway revival cast album was also a top contender at the 2003 Grammy Awards for “Best Musical Show Album.” The songstress recently performed in the revival of Once on This Island, earning a Grammy nomination for “Best Musical Theater Album.”
Salonga has also appeared on the Broadway production of
Allegiance, a musical inspired and developed by celebrated actor George Takei about a Japanese-American family forced into an internment camp during World War II. Salonga garnered a Craig Noel nomination for “Outstanding Featured Performance in a Musical” for Allegiance. Salonga began her recording career at age 10 with Small Voice, which received a Gold certification. Her albums include Bahaghari and the live album Blurred Lines.
