Lea Salonga, Eva Noblezada, and other Broadway stars sing popular songs from Les Misérables and Miss Saigon at the New York Pops Gala last May 2 (US time) to celebrate the works of creators Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg.

According to its website,

The New York Pops is the largest independent pops orchestra in the United States, and the only professional symphonic orchestra in New York City specializing in popular music. Led by Music Director Steven Reineke, the orchestra performs an annual subscription series at Carnegie Hall, enjoying one of their highest subscription renewal rates. The New York Pops’ annual birthday gala is celebrated each spring, raising funds for the orchestra and its education programs.”

In this YouTube video by Theater Mania, Lea Salonga sings Miss Saigon’s “Movie in my Mind” with Eva Noblezada, Les Misérables’ “On My Own”, and Les Misérables’ “Do You Hear the People Sing” with the entire company. Lea is best known for originating the role of Kim in Miss Saigon and for being the first Asian to play the role of Eponine on Broadway’s Les Misérables.
