Fil-Am Singer H.E.R joins production of Broadway musical on Imelda Marcos

Metro Manila, April 26 ------ Fiilpino-American singer H.E.R. will join the production team of "Here Lies Love," a Broadway musical on the rise and fall of former First Lady Imelda Marcos.

"Filipinos are a global people. We come in all colors and build bridges across cultures. I am beyond excited to produce my first Broadway musical and forge a unique and meaningful partnership with Here Lies Love," the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter said.

"Here Lies Love" was conceptualized by award-winning singer-songwriter David Byrne and DJ-producer Fatboy Slim.

The musical's producers earlier addressed criticisms, explaining that the show "offers a creative way of re-information — an innovative template on how to stand up to tyrant."We cannot tell the modern history of the Philippines without the United States.

They're intertwined. Here Lies Love is an Anti-Marcos show. It is a pro-Filipino show, being told in a quintessential American form: The Broadway musical," the producers said in a statement last January."Here Lies Love" also marks the return of Lea Salonga to the Broadway scene.

The musical will begin previews on June 17 and will officially open on July 20.
