Lea Salonga reportedly put her sold-out concert in Arizona to a halt after she got distracted with a ringing cellphone.

A report from Pep.ph tells an intriguing story of how Salonga stopped singing her second song for the night and requested for the audience member to answer the call as it may be an emergency. “I heard a phone ringing over there and I will stop and ask you to answer because it could be emergency.

“Emergency happens and just go ahead and answer it. I’ll wait, that could be an emergency.”

The Tony Award winner was performing at her sold out concert at Arizona’s Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts where tickets sold for $ 35-85 (Dh 130-315)

Prior to the concert, audience members were warned to either turn off or put their phones to silent mode to avoid any distractions during the performances.

Audiences from different nationalities filled the stage with their applause the moment Lea Salonga started with her opening number in a full-long gown.

Salonga has long been known to keenly remind audiences about proper etiquette when watching live theatrical and musical performances.
