Lea Salonga: One Woman Show Brings back THE MESSAGE FROM MISS LENA HORNE: RACE NEVER MATTERS BECAUSE TALENT ALWAYS ENDURES. And that’s why We Can Never Go Back to Before!

One enchanted evening, I played the "orginal" I Could Have Danced All Night, from the movie version of My Fair Lady. Marni Nixon was the "voice"; the "image" -- the uber talented actress Miss Audrey Hepburn. The Supreme example of "A Summative Assessment as a Story of the Typically Superior Vocal Talents of Women of Color on Broadway" is at the heart of Miss Lea Salonga.

This led me to : https://youtu.be/wHdtwKCGzZU. The video producer features first: Ms. Lea Salonga as Fantine, then the Les Miserables epic and Oh So White Reunion. Now, channeling the Production Team as Artist and Artistic Director, our own great singer-actress-civil rights activist, Miss Lena Horne , had made the same point decades earlier, in her Epic, Once-in-a-lifetime One Woman tour de force, LENA HORNE: THE LADY AND HER MUSIC.

Next, IL DIVO: A Musical Affair - Hamburg, 13. October 2014 gifted me with a bon mot of male pulchritude with the same theme and Player's Player Ms Lea Salonga, in every heterosexual female's ultimate fantasy covering " Its Time To Say Goodbye.

Her Day Job: Chief Coach for Rhythm and Vocal Performance: A VIRTUAL ASYNCHRONOUS WORKSHOP from VernonNickersonSchoolcoach.

I will have come, NOT TO PRAISE CEASAR, BUT TO BURY, ONCE AND FOR ALL, THE SINGLE MOST ENDURING SYSTEMICALLY RACIST TROPE " SORRY, YOUR NOT THE RIGHT RACE FOR THE PART!"
