Lea Salonga: The MYX Magna Awardee 2013
The MYX Magna Award 2013 is given to music icon and broadway diva Lea Salonga at the annual MYX Music Awards held in Music Museum last night 20 Mar 2013.

In the tribute: Julie Anne San Jose sang “I Am But A Small Voice”; Erik Santos and K-La Rivera, “A Whole New World”; Juris and Richard Poon, “We Could Be In Love”; Nikki Gil, “Reflection”; and Christian Bautista & Rachelle Ann Go, “Sun And Moon” from the musical “Miss Saigon” were among those who performed to honor Lea Salonga with renditions of her popular songs and then came together to sing “Tagumpay Nating Lahat”. ~More from this article HERE.

Surprise! Yes, she’s TONI GONZAGA beside me! HOW?
I’m looking for a shot and a place to hide while the show is ongoing. I was stunned, still with a poise after, to ask if the seat is vacant though I know for the fact that it’s not because it has a bag above it but I’d to take the chance to get some photos of the show.
Me: Excuse me, can I use the seat for a while? (with a smile of course)
Woman (Toni): as she’s looking towards me, she said “yes”, the not so accomodating gestures as normal persons who’s talking to strangers.
Me: Thank you. (WOW! Toni Gonzaga in the back of my mind!) Very gorgeous and love the smell of her perfume though! LOL!
Yes folks, Toni Gonzaga supporting Erik Santos’ PowER IKons in Music Museum (13 Aug 2011).
