MANILA -- Here's something music fans wouldn't want to miss. 

Lea Salonga will be joining the likes of Meryl Streep, Neil Patrick Harris, and Lin-Manuel Miranda for an online concert this weekend. 

She is part of the star-studded lineup for the concert, scheduled for Sunday (Monday, 8 a.m. PH time), to celebrate the 90th birthday of a legend of musical theater, composer Stephen Sondheim. 

The others acts include Kristin Chenoweth, Josh Groban, Aaron Tveit, and Jake Gyllenhaal among many others, Broadway.com revealed. Check out the full lineup here

The concert will honor Sondheim, considered one of the most important figures of 20th-century musical theater. His works as a composer and lyricist include "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "Into the Woods," and "West Side Story." 

It will also double as a fundraiser dubbed Artists Striving to End Poverty, an organization dedicated to transforming "the lives of youth using the most powerful tool they had: their art."
