Lea Salonga needs no introduction. Having hit stardom after taking on the role of Kim in ‘Miss Saigon’, Lea has also given her singing voice to two beloved Disney princesses: Jasmine of ‘Aladdin’, and Mulan of ‘Mulan’. As a child, these were very proud moments for a young Filipina such as myself and hearing her go back to those roots and performing ‘Reflection’ once again made my heart shiver.
Lea recently performed the song in a restaurant and it was all sorts of magical. Watch Keala Settle’s Twitter video of the moment here:

Keala’s caption reads, “Just so we’re clear, Lea Salonga is an INTERNATIONAL TREASURE. I could listen to her sing FOOOOOOOREEEEEEVERRRRRRR.” We could, too, to be honest.
