On Ovation Productions’ 40th year, it proudly announces that Tony Award-winner and Broadway royalty Lea Salonga is ioining multi-platinum singer-songwriter Josh Groban at his special post-Valentines Manila concert this 2019. Two of the most powerful and distinct voices in the industry will come together for the “Bridges Tour Live” on February 22, 2019 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
The unmistakable voice behind global hit “You Raise Me Up” brings his internationally recognized one-night-only show to the Philippines. Aside from his own 5-man band, he will be backed by the magnificent ABS-CBN Orchestra and the Ateneo Choir.
“Bridges Tour” kicked off in the United States on October 18, 2018. It marked Groban’s first tour since his sold-out concert “Stages Tour” in 2016.
Groban released his eighth studio album titled “Bridges” on September 21, 2018 to critical acclaim. The album has 12 tracks including “River,” “Granted” and “Symphony.”
Aside from the collaboration song “Musica del Corazon” featuring Vicente Amigo, there are three duets in “Bridges.” These are “Run” with Sarah McLachlan, “We Will Meet Once Again” with Andrea Bocelli and “99 Years” with Jennifer Nettles.
“Bridges Tour Live” in Manila is extra special as Groban will perform songs off the “Bridges” album. He will sing a captivating duet or two with Salonga as well as his greatest hits “All I Ask,” “Broken Vow,” “She’s Out Of My Life,” “You Raise Me Up,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “To Where You Are,” “Awake,” “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” and “Believe,” among many others.
On the other hand, Salonga released her most recent album titled “Bahaghari [Rainbow]: Lea Salonga Sings Traditional Songs of the Philippines” in 2017.
