I intended to include this in my previous entry (which I posted just minutes ago) but it would have been too far down and Lea Salonga always deserves to be seen spot-on.

I played it and I felt like I went to heaven without dying. It was superb. It was just Lea in front of a bunch of people in Hawaii, accompanied by grand piano music. No microphones.
