Richard Poon cant wait to sing with Lea Salonga at his concert


Richard Poon claimed that his upcoming concert dubbed as Richard Poon: The Crooner is definitely a dream come true because he will be accompanied by powerhouse guests, including Broadway superstar Lea Salonga. "I think Lea'rsquo;s the queen of PICC (Philippine International Convention Center). Nobody can fill PICC from top to bottom kahit several nights pa except Lea. And I believe that for me who's trying PICC for the first time, why not guest the queen of PICC? First time ko for Lea to guest on my show so kinakabahan ako talaga. But I am going to try my best to level up to where she is [as a singer]," he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.

Lots of fun and entertainment are in store for the audience since Pokwang and Sam Milby will be joining the show as well. "Pokwang is very close to me, I have a good relationship with her. Sam Milby, everybody knows naman na ever since nung nag-start kami, pareho kaming hindi ganon ka-okay but we'rsquo;re supporting each other's music. So I guess this is my way of saying that I appreciate their friendship. Exciting kasi we'rsquo;re coming up with great production numbers. Most of them are medleys na talagang pinag-isipan at pinaghandaan naming maigi."

On a personal note, Richard admitted that he'rsquo;s pulling all the stops for Maricar Reyes to make it on his concert. As previously reported on Push.com.ph, Richard has been courting the Imortal star for quite some time already. "I invited her. I am really hoping na yung mga taga-Imortal e pakawalan siya on Friday since they'rsquo;re taping M-W-F. So sabi niya, 'lsquo;Richard I don'rsquo;t know if I'rsquo;d be able to get some free time.'rsquo; Even John Lloyd (Cruz) was telling me na, 'lsquo;Uy gusto ko manood niyan kaya lang may taping ata ako.'rsquo; I am trying to talk to Ms. Mariole (Alberto, head of Star Magic) na pwede bang maaga yung labas ng taping ni Maricar and John Lloyd because they'rsquo;re good friends and they want to watch," he beamed.

Catch Richard Poon: The Crooner concert at the PICC Plenary Hall on November 12 at 8 pm.
