La Aunor, In the Eyes of Lea Salonga

From the posting of Ron Maceda, a Noranian, in an e-group composed of the Superstar's fans:

Last night, the international star proclaimed on national TV that Nora Aunor is a genius actress and a great singer. Lea guested on Loren Legarda's Real Stories aired every Friday on Channel 5.

Asked if any local star gets her starstruck, Lea candidly answered: "Nora Aunor."

The Tony awardee admitted to having watched some of the Superstar's films on TV and professed her admiration for her acting style. "There's this one movie scene where Nora's face seemed blank. And only her eyes were acting," she said. "I was impressed. I remember saying to myself: that woman is a genius!... And she's a great singer, too."

My Ate all time fave is the Superstar, Nora Aunor. Actually its was our Lola who was another Noranian, who introduced Nora to my Ate. And up to now, my Ate is still awe with the petite lass with a golden voice.

it's indeed heartwarming to know that an international artist like lea appreciates the exceptional talent of nora. media has magnified the weaknesses of nora over the years and neglected what great works she had contibuted to the enrichment of philippine cinema. i sincerely hope the younger generation of filipinos would have the chance to witness the legacies of nora's exemplary films. she is one performer we could truly call filipino!!!
