All Music Guide - Peter Fawthrop
If the Phillipines ever had a princess, it is Lea Salonga. Petite and graceful, with a girl-next-door quality, she encapsulates the spirit of her country in one remarkable voice. A star in her homeland since childhood, she hit the American spotlight in the late '80s. America did not simply discover her -- it stood in awe of her, thanks to her groundbreaking performance as Broadway's original Miss Saigon. She won the Tony Award for her role. In 1992, Salonga was chosen as the singing voice of Jasmine in the hit Disney film Aladdin, which won the Academy Award for "Whole New World." With good publicity and new fans, Salonga found an open door to a self-titled American ...

If the Phillipines ever had a princess, it is Lea Salonga. Petite and graceful, with a girl-next-door quality, she encapsulates the spirit of her country in one remarkable voice. A star in her homeland since childhood, she hit the American spotlight in the late '80s. America did not simply discover her -- it stood in awe of her, thanks to her groundbreaking performance as Broadway's original Miss Saigon. She won the Tony Award for her role. In 1992, Salonga was chosen as the singing voice of Jasmine in the hit Disney film Aladdin, which won the Academy Award for "Whole New World." With good publicity and new fans, Salonga found an open door to a self-titled American album debut through Atlantic records. Paired with producer/writer/musician Glen Ballard, who would later be known for his collaborations with Alanis Morissette, Lea Salonga features 11 simple pop tunes. It opens with a cover of Belinda Carlisle's "Vision of You," written by Rick Nowels and Ellen Shipley. It closes with "The Journey," written by Julie Gold another inspiration from the writer who gave Bette Midler "From a Distance". It contains a middle track duet with Brad Kane, who was the singing voice of Aladdin. In between is some standard pop fluff. It is fluff done well, but the question is, who has such a gifted Broadway veteran singing songs that fall a few notches below her musical level? Filipino fans brought the album multi-platinum sales, while it fell flat elsewhere. Suffice to say that if Disney had gotten their highly promotional clutches on her, a CD titled "Lea Salonga Sings Jasmine" would have brought in some real sales. It would also have tainted her talent in the same way this album does, by prohibiting her finely tuned voice from breaking free into a more unexpected and artistic world of music.

    Excellent!!

    An excellent production from one of the best vocalists today. Some may be described as "pop fluff", but when performed by Ms Salonga it is "Outstanding pop fluff".

    Loving Lea

    I have heard her album and all I can say is two thumbs up!!! She definitely stands out with her soulful rendition of her songs. I especially love ''Journey'' for it brings back memories of those happy days. Most of the songs here were truly given due justice by Lea. I hope to see her perform these songs in a concert. God bless Lea and her fans!

    A Gold Mine to Discover!!!!!

    Lea Salonga is a truly gifted artist. This album showcases her vocal range and talent. It is just disappointing that people have not discovered her gift of music. For as long as I have followed her career, she has always been: undervalued, underappreciated and misunderstood. I urge one and all to listen to this talented person and you will not regret it!!! Happy listening!!!!!!
