MANILA - Following the success of her anniversary concert last week, Broadway star Lea Salonga is granting many of her fans wishes by announcing an encore performance Thursday night.

In her official Twitter account, Salonga posted a promotional image for the concert, renamed as "The Repeat," slated for January 18, 2014.

As with her anniversary concert, which celebrated her 35 years in show business, it will also be held at the PICC Plenary Hall and will again be directed by Bobby Garcia.

Salonga's brother, Gerard Salonga, will also be returning as the musical director, along with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra.

One stand-out highlight of her recent anniversary concert was her duet with singer Rachelle Ann Go, who recently bagged a role in the West End revival of the international hit musical, "Miss Saigon."

Salonga, the original Kim in the 1989 London musical, shared the stage with Go and sang one of the show's most poignant numbers, "Movie in My Mind."
