Recently Lea Salonga who won the Tony Award in 1991 when she was a 20-year-old rising star on Broadway, discussed some of the artists who have influenced her throughout her career.
Here's what she had to say about Elaine Paige: She's not the most familiar singer to American audiences. I love the way she sang "Evita," just the timbre of her voice -- it's not heavy. Even when it gets dramatic, there’s a cutting quality to it that makes it clear. It has a timeless quality -- even when I listen to her from the '70s or '80s.
