MANILA – Lea Salonga and the rest of the cast of the Broadway revival of “Once On This Island” performed at the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The cast sang “Why We Tell the Story” before hundreds of spectators. A video of their performance was uploaded on YouTube.
"Once on This Island" follows Ti Moune (Hailey Kilgore), a Caribbean country girl who falls in love with Daniel (Isaac Powell), a young aristocrat man she saves from a car crash.
On her quest to be with the love of her life who had returned to his wealthy family on the other side of the island, four gods including Salonga will guide Ti Moune through a test of love against prejudice and hate.
Salonga plays Erzulie, the goddess of love, who will help Ti Moune reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
The musical will open on Broadway on December 3.
