This review is from: Lea Salonga (Audio CD)
This is the first online purchase that i made from amazon.com, along with my SAT reviewers. Lea Salonga's impeccable voice will surely have you craving for more.I was fortunate enough to visit the Philippines last year and got all of her available recordings,in addition to my fds, ms, les miz recordings, 11 all in all, including one that was recorded when she was still young (i assume she was younger than 12). And in addition to that, i get to watch the Songs from Home live, which is in Filipino admittedly. I may not understand it but she's still great nonetheless. She's really a joy to watch, her voice far exceeds the so-called singers of today (and people who fancy themselves singers.) She may or may not impress Simon Cowell, but one cannot deny that she is way better than most of the contestants in American Idol.
This cd is so different from her other recordings, i especially enjoyed the songs "The Journey" (I used it as background music for the video montage for my own debutante's ball,and my friend's quincenera),"It's Just Goodbye", I Honestly Love You, and We Could be in love. I just hope amazon.com will start selling her other recordings so I won't have to bother my friends to send me cds. Anyway, I got most of her cds for less than 10 bucks each (I think it was 375 - 450 pesos for most of her cds) so I'm not complaining, plus, the Philippines is full of talented singers, and I'm very keen on visiting the country.
