International singer Lea Salonga as well as TV hosts Boy Abunda and Vice Ganda has joined the fray on the lip-synching issue that came up when young singer Rhap Salazar took to social media to express his disapproval over singers who lip sync.
In a radio interview, Lea said the music industry is a competitive market and producers naturally opt to give chance to singers who have potential to sell their album. The internationally-acclaimed singer advises artists to offer something fresh to make people shell out their hard-earned money for their albums. For his part, Boy said he disagrees with Rhap’s view since even the best performers have to lip-synch sometimes depending on the situation. Meanwhile, Vice said non-singers should not be barred from having concerts or releasing albums because they also help the industry.
