Maja Salvador is Lea Salonga's fave female face in PH showbiz

Looks like 'The Voice Philippines' coach Lea Salonga is one big fan of award-winning actress and platinum-selling recording artist Maja Salvador.

On Twitter, Ms. Lea started the hashtag #AskCoachLea, giving her 2.6 million followers the chance to ask her with any questions. She gamely answered some of them, including what her favorite food is, the kind of movie she loves to watch, the course she took at Ateneo, her favorite singer, if Timmy Pavino has a girlfriend etc.

One of the questions was about her favorite female face in Philippine showbiz, asked by a certain R-A. Dioquino. She answered Maja Salvador, and further added that she's been loving her face since she was 17.

aicadioquino: "Your favorite female face(s) in local showbiz? #AskCoachLea"

MsLeaSalonga: "aicadioquino: Maja Salvador. I've loved that face since she was 17."

Maja is now 26 years old. Meaning, Ms. Lea has been adoring her pretty face for 9 years already.

It seems obvious now that the singer is a long time fan of Maja. She really loves the actress, who currently stars with boyfriend Gerald Anderson in the daytime program 'Give Love on Christmas: The Gift of Life'. In fact, in an Inquirer article October last year, Lea said that she enjoyed Maja's company during the 'One Kapamilya Go' show in the US because she's "funny and makulit in all the right ways". She also noticed how adorable Maja and Gerald are when they're together.

While I didn't expect Lea to consider fellow 'Voice' coach Sarah Geronimo as her fave female face locally, I was kinda expecting however that she will cite Sarah in a question about who she thinks are the best singers we have in the country. She tried to give a safe answer by first saying there's plenty of them, but still ended up citing one particular singer - the world champion Jed Madela.

reginesantiago_: "@MsLeaSalonga name one of the best singers in the Philippines, besides yourself of course."

@MsLeaSalonga: "@reginesantiago_ There are PLENTY! but one of my faves is @jedmadela."

Lea may not have Sarah as her favorite female face nor her favorite singer, but in a newer tweet, she however finds the PopStar Royalty one of the kindest people she knows, as she defended Sarah against those blaming her for the questionable win of Lyca Gairanod over Darren Espanto in 'The Voice Kids'. (Sarah Geronimo and Darren Espanto's amazing 'Bang Bang' performance brings back old issue)

MsLeaSalonga: "@QueenSGKnights: SG is one of the kindest people on earth. She doesn't deserve that. Popsters please take care of her."

MsLeaSalonga: "@QueenSGKnights: She can't be blamed for that. That's not her fault. People have the free will to vote and for this time, Lyca got the votes."
