    Sun and Moon is a gorgeous song. We sang some of the songs from Miss Saigon in chorus when I was in high school. I love Sun and Moon. I saw clips of Yu-na's program, and there is more music variation, in this program, in the sense that there's dramatic/ and softer music.

    I can't wait to see the program...And Lea's voice, gorgeous..

    I only saw a short practice clip, so not the whole thing by any means. most of what was shown was her spiral and some jumps... I wish I saw the rest. But her spiral looks one hundred percent better...It was like a less than one minute clip and it went from dramatic to softer music. She did a spin, her 3 jump combo, her spiral, and double axel/3 toe (Fall)

    But on another note. I was in London some years back and went to see Les Mis. Lea Salonga I believe was suppose to be performing, but we got stuck with an understudy (who didn't have near Lea's voice) Totally disappointing because Lea's voice is to die for.

    I saw that clip,too.
    That practice was from August. And apart from her fall in axel, it was great!

    I was fortunate to have seen Lea Salonga perform in Flower Drum Song on its last Broadway performance. She truly has an amazing voice.
