Lea Salonga created buzz online with her recent social media post.
KAMI learned that Lea and her brother Gerard Salonga criticized a performance on a “noontime musical variety show.”
The acclaimed singer reposted her brother’s Facebook post about certain singers singing out of tune.
She posted in the comments section that viewers deserve to get better performances.
"I’d like to think that we deserve far better than what we’re being offered. Haist! Ewan,” she posted.
Netizens on Fashion Pulis had mixed reactions over Lea’s post. A few of them even speculated that Lea was referring to the opening number’s last performance on the Kapamilya show ASAP.
“E kung ganun nila gustong ientertain mga fanatics by singing out of tune e paki ba nung iba
“Problem is, though these wannabe singers aim to entertain, not everyone is amused by their out of tune/rythm singing. Why not let the actual singers shine, and the others who excel in acting can perform some short, amusing, skit, or participate in some games wherein their acting prowess gets highlighted?
“Gone are the days when quality and excellence are the priorities in giving out free entertainment. Now, it's about popularity and what can satisfy the fans of artists in a few minutes of productions than providing no subpar performances.
“Ano bang noontime variety show meron sa Pinas bukod sa Asap?
“tita lea just needs to let it go sometimes.. parang lahat nalang may issue.
“Ok I think this is O sa opening number ng ASAP. Siya yung final number sa opening at medyo off yung tempo pero salba naman. Pero nung nag-join na lahat ng singers, gulo gulo na walang maintindihan na lyrics kundi This is the greatest show. Please correct me if I'm wrong though. Group performance kasi ang tinutukoy eh.”
“Tama si O to. Pinag uusapan sya namin habang naglalaro ng majong. Bongga ang opening tapos biglang meeh yong finale ni O. He almost ruined the grand opening prod”
Netizens were referring to this performance on ASAP although Lea and Gerard have not yet specified the performace they were posting about:
In a previous report by KAMI, Lea also opened up about the qualities she wants for the next Darna actress.
Lea Salonga is considered as one of the greatest Filipino singers of all time. She became a part of the hit musical “Miss Saigon” and the Disney movie “Aladdin.” The singer also made waves as a coach on “The Voice Philippines.”
