MALAKING inspirasyon pala si Lea Salonga sa career ng Fil-Am Hollywood singer-actress na si Vanessa Hudgens.

Sa grand mediacon na ibinigay sa kahihirang na global ambassador ng turismo ng bansa para sa docu niyang The Awakening na ididirek ni Paul Soriano, inamin niya sa host na si Boy Abunda na, “The Filipino I really knew who is in the business is Lea Salonga and, like, her voice continues to still live on to this day and is honestly a big reason of, like, why I sing and how I sing ‘cause she really, really inspired me to keep on at my dream and I mean, that’s it’s all about.

“It’s all about seeing people who look like you so that you can be inspired to pursue something that you never thought would be possible otherwise.”

Sa maikling panahon na inilagi ni Vanessa sa bansa, nakabisita na siya sa Palawan at wish niyang makapunta rin sa Cebu at Mindanao.

“I wanna like go and like buy furniture. I’m so obsessed with my Filipino furniture and lighting, the use of natural elements, the rattan, the wicker, the Mother of Pearl.

“It’s all just so beautiful to me and something I’ve always loved. And I’m like, ‘oh, it makes sense, because it’s Filipino.’

Willing din ang international singer-actress na gumawa ng mas maraming proyekto rito.

Aniya, “It’s a wonderful excuse to be here.”

Nang hingan ni Boy ng mensahe para sa mga kabataan na gustong sumabak sa mundo ng show business, ang sabi ni Vanessa: “I feel like the most important thing and the thing that I personally value the most is telling that story. It doesn’t necessarily follow on what scale. For me, the reason I think why I am where I am is because it’s always been about the fact, telling stories that I’m passionate about. If you’re trying to get famous, that’s your goal? Don’t do it with the entertainment industry, like, go figure out something but not in film because it’s such a very sacred thing. I think that’s really important to remember. It’s not about fame, it’s about telling stories that you’re passionate about, telling stories that move people and that move you.”
