Our very own international star Lea Salonga will be one of the featured artists in the annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular in New York City. Lea, who currently appears as Fantine in the smash-hit musical Les Miserables, will be joined by fellow Tony winners Anika Noni Rose (Change, Dreamgirls film) and John Lloyd Young (Jersey Boys). Viewers will not see Lea and company during the live telecast nationwide on NBC, but their pre-recorded voices will be heard as the fireworks are exploding in the background before hundreds of thousands of spectators. The voice of the Tony and Lawrence Olivier award winner Lea Salonga, backed by the world famous New York Pops. The 2007 fireworks show will feature more than 120,000 bursts of pyrotechnic color and a display of "nautical fireworks" during a pirate battle scene.
