Lea Salonga is no stranger to firsts. She was the first female casted as the lead role of Kim in the original London production of Miss Saigon. She was the Asian female casted to play the role of Eponine in the musical Les Miserables. And she was the first Asian woman selected to be the singing voices of not one, but two Disney princesses in the animated films Aladdin and Mulan.
On Friday, July 11, Lea Salonga added another first under her belt, becoming the first Filipina artist to headline at the new Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
