During the fifth week of Your Face Sounds Familiar, Denise Laurel impersonated Lea Salonga and the Broadway star was impressed by her performance.
Denise sang Lea’s song “Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal” and also did a duet of Miss Saigon hit “Sun and Moon” with YFSF judge Jed Madela.
Denise reposted Lea’s tweet on her Instagram and was touched by her sweet words.
“I never knew it could be possible for me to be speechless twice in a row.. Lol I just wanna say Thankyou@msleasalonga for tuning in!” the Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita star said.
Denise was also emotional last night as the judges praised her impressive performance.
“Talagang pinatunayan mo sa performance mo today, your talent is truly underrated. If I knew how to reach her, even if she’s flying to wherever she’s going, sasabihan ko talaga, ‘Lea, you need to see her. She convinced us dito sa 'Your Face Sounds Familiar' that we were watching Lea Salonga,’” judge Gary Valenciano stated.
