MANILA, Philippines — Award-winning singer-actress Lea Salonga has collaborated with acapella pop group Pentatonix for a cover of the Filipino Christmas song "Christmas in Our Hearts," the popular holiday hit by Jose Mari Chan.

The cover is a part of Pentatonix's sixth and newest album, "Holidays Around The World," where the group also teamed up with the United States' Meghan Trainor, Chinese pianist Lang Lang, Latin band La Santa Cecilia, and British acapella group The King's Singers.
