Lea Salonga revealed how she will be a presenter at the 2021 Tony Awards.
The singer-actress made the announcement on Twitter last Friday, September 24.
“The cat’s out of the bag! I’ll be presenting at the [Tony Awards] on Sunday!!!”
She also quote-tweeted the official announcement of the award-giving body from its official Twitter account.
