Rachelle Ann Go Wins 'Best Performance of a Song Award' in British Theater Website

Rachelle Ann Go may have dreamed a dream, but that dream is now a reality and she has received another recognition: she was awarded Best Performance of a Song for the number “I Dreamed a Dream,” one of the key pieces in the French musical Les Miserables. The award was given by West End Frame, one of the United Kingdom’s leading independent theater websites.

She bested other performers like Matthew Corner of Jersey Boys, Oliver Savile of Wicked, Emma Williams of Mrs. Henderson Presents, Matt Henry of Kinky Boots, Josie Benson of In the Heights, Danny Horn of Sunny Afternoon, Miria Parvin of Matilda, KJ Hippensteel of The Book of Mormon, and Ben Foster of The Phantom of the Opera.

Go started her music career when she won in the TV competition Search for a Star. She has seven multi-platinum albums under her belt, but she became an international theater star in 2014 when she was cast as Gigi van Tranh in the West End revival of Miss Saigon. The following year, she was cast as Les Miserables‘ Fantine, a woman who turns to prostitution so she could provide for her daughter Cosette. Go essayed the role when the musical was staged in Manila.

Go told West End Frame, “Wow! Thank you West End Frame! I’d like to thank all those who voted for me. It’s an honour to be performing and appreciated here in beautiful London’s West End. I owe this great award to you, guys! And to the whole Les Miserables company, thank you for being so amazing and for all the support and encouragement! What a dream come true to be part of this phenomenal long running show. I am so blessed! Cheers!”
