Kim So Hyun, "Think of Me"
I don't like ALW or Phantom of the Opera, but she really sings this quite well... perhaps even better than Sarah Brightman. (SB can try to sing opera, but I think she has been trained too much to sing in musicals? To this beginner, Miss Kim sounds like she has had some proper vocal training... ) I think E. Asia still maintains some standards when it comes to vocal performance in musicals--perhaps a carry-over of how seriously they take music education? Look at how many classical musicians and vocalists there are in China, Japan, and S. Korea.
