Not many can get a standing ovation before singing a note but Ms Salonga certainly can. I first saw her as Miss Saigon in London nearly 30 years ago and her voice is as good as ever. Postponed from earlier in the year when she broke her leg skiing it was worth the wait. The voice is still unbelievably strong and despite a few dodgy song choices the stage and film classics hit the spot. Even the pulling someone from the crowd to sing with went down well. She doesn't tour very often but when she does make the effort.
