Looking back, Lea, who is Maria Lea Carmen Imutan Salonga in real li
fe, was only seven years old when she made her professional debut in 1978, through the musical The King and I. A couple of years later, she also played the title role in Annie.
She grew up appearing in a number of productions such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, The Rose T, The Goodbye Girl, Paper Moon, and The Fantasticks. At 18, she played the lead role of Kim in the musical Miss Saigon.
She’s been recognized as a singer-actress who brought so much recognitions to the country. Some of her achievements include winning the Olivier and Theatre World Awards, becoming the first Asian woman to win a Tony Award, and being the first Filipino artist to sign with an international record label (Atlantic Records in 1993).
She is also the first Philippine-based artist who received a major album release and distribution deal in the United States and one of the best-selling Filipino artists of all time; having sold over 19 million copies of her albums worldwide.
