WATCH: LEA SALONGA DEBUTS NEW SONG 'DREAM AGAIN' FOR COVID-19 FUNDRAIsING
Lea Salonga released a new song called “Dream Again” to help raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts across the globe.
The Tony Award-winning singer-actress debuted the upbeat track and its music video exclusively on Hollywood Life last Friday, Aug. 21.
She explained that the tune was inspired by what people wish to do when the pandemic and the quarantine measures are gone.
“There was this idea that once all the physical distancing was done, that we may be able to focus on getting things back to normal and aspire and dream for those things to happen in our lives again after being holed up for so long,” Salonga was quoted as saying.
“The significance of ‘Dream Again’ would be that, while we’re stuck in quarantine or lockdown or whatever it may be, we still can actually aspire and look forward to and plan in the hopes that once all of this is done, we’ll be ready for you to make all those dreams come true,” she added.
