Format: Audio CD
The delightful Lea Salonga burst into musical theater history as the young lead of Miss Saigon (the much-anticipated sophomoric attempt by the Les Mis writers) and then cemented her vocal imprint on kids of all ages in Disney's Aladdin singing A Whole New World, and later a jucier role as Mulan. This CD, My Journey So Far, is the 'cast album' of her semi-biographical cabaret act. And what a delight it is.

I won't compare this to her other albums because the purpose of this album is different. She recorded this live at the Carlyle in NYC in front of her cabaret audience, interacting with them and the band (who take turns at supporting her Jasmine in the above-mentioned Disney song). She gets to play storyteller with her own history, like a good cabaret act, punching up moments with appropriate songs. Her take on Something's Coming comes with the memory of the thrill of moving to London after succeeding in the Miss Saigon audition. She dedicates to her young daughter the sweetest rendition of "Your Song" ever, tied with Someone's Waiting For You (from Disney's The Rescuers).

She opens the concert with a Filippino thank-you to music, a song this listener certainly couldn't translate without the liner notes, but, as with my favorite other-language-singer Cecilia Bartoli, the emotional intent comes through without a doubt.

After her welcome and introduction in her native tongue, she charmingly asks, "Did you REALLY think I was going to do the entire show in Filippino?" That teasing wit stays throughout the concert album: her story of her first audition as a child, instead of a monologue reciting the Girl Scout Pledge; imitations of her mother and the French authors of Les Mis/Miss Saigon.

I am a HUGE fan of Lea. I thirst for her singing songs so far unrecorded, and non-Tagalog! Take this as constructive criticism, not to insult. This is recorded in a small café setting versus a concert hall and so the sound is passable but not high fidelity. She sings several songs in combination with 2 or 3 other songs, so the reason I bought this CD was because it had the songs I wanted, but they are not sung in their entirety. Hearing her talk is fun and you can feel her dynamic personality coming through each story. The musicians who play with her are like you would find in a lounge act, not a headliner. She can sing acapella so they are sometimes distracting. This is the CD she was selling at her live concerts, and I will keep it and hold onto it, at least until there is another CD with better versions of the songs. I still love her voice above any other I have ever heard!

I saw Lea in MISS SAIGON. Brilliant performance. Her voice is one of the finest I've ever heard. Even live, she sounds impeccable. This is the sign of a true, God-given talent. No auto tune or other technical, over-produced manipulations needed. She is phenomenal.

May her journey continue as her story goes on... and on.

Lea Salonga is certainly one of todays really excellent artists, I say artist rather than singer, because she is an actress and singer in one, and to observe her on a DVD is of the greatest pleasure, because she interprets a song, she makes it her own, and gives it to you the audience, this is seldom to find in other artists today, she is very well supported by her brother Gerard Salonga, who is a very fine conductor also, although I would prefer to see all her cd's as dvd's because of her very fine visual interpretations, however this cd is more than worth its 5 star evaluation, also as a further point in her chatting whilst introducing the various pieces that she will perform, she brings a warmth and homeliness into the performance, very seldom to be observed with others, therefore just relax, sit back and enjoy, you surely will enjoy, as I have done and do very often

We loved her as Princess Jasmine, we loved her in Miss Saigon--but there are very few Broadway roles for Asian women. Flower Drum Song was the only one of its kind for a long time as was The King and I. I loved this album. Lea is also funny and I would love to see her in a one-woman show--Vegas, with your multimillion dollar contracts, are you listening? Her voice is much better than Celine Dion's--and I love Celine Dion.

Lovely songs and lovely singer! She is a most accomplished singer and it makes me wonder why she is not one of the major singers on the A list. She is such a great singer - almost like a throwback to the times of Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Barbra Streisand. Her diction is perfect so you could understand every word of every song. She does not look bad either!

Amazing CD you cannot go wrong with this one! You will never get bored to listen to Lea's voice, every single song is beautiful and you can clearly hear each words she sings, now if you compare that with other artists you know what I mean... You get a glimpse of Lea's life, her childhood and how she was introduced into the musicals and later on became a Disney Princess, you will sing and laugh a lot! =) If this CD had a DVD version I'd so buy it!
