Lea Salonga accepts ice bucket challenge; calls on Voice PH coaches


082214-lea_main.jpgThe Philippines' Broadway Diva Lea Salonga just got dumped with a bucket of ice water in her own backyard. The singer-actress accepted the ALS bucket challenge from Il Divo member Urs Buhler and even shared that she wants to help the cause because her husband's uncle was affected by the disease.

The ALS ice bucket challenge, a movement popular right now among Hollywood celebrities, has reached local shores with stars like Lea and boxing champ Manny Pacquiao being called out by their foreign colleagues. The movement aims to help raise funds for the ALS Association which helps those affected with  amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads. A common stipulation is that nominated people have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.

Lea in turn nominated Glee actor Darren Criss, her Sana Maulit Muli co-star Aga Muhlach and fellow The Voice Philippines coaches Apl D Ap, Bamboo and Sarah Geronimo. 

Below is Lea's video from her official Youtube account.
