Lea Salonga joins the Ice Bucket Challenge

Broadway Diva Lea Salonga finally joins the Ice Bucket Challenge craze.

In a video posted on her Youtube channel Thursday August21, Lea accepted the challenge of being drenched to a bucket of ice cold water.

According to Lea, the challenge came from Urs Buhler of the opera group Il Divo. She also said that accepting the challenge is important to her because the uncle of his husband, Tommy Lee has passed away from ALS. But before she got to be dumped by a bucket of ice cold water, she challenges several people to do the same. Lea called on Glee star Darren Criss, former love team Aga Muhlach, and fellow Voice of the Philippines coaches Bamboo, Apl de Ap and Sarah Geronimo to follow suit or donate to ALS charity.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is the new social media craze aimed at raising awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and to raise funds for ALS charity organizations.

Here’s Lea Salonga’s Ice Bucket Challenge video.
