NEW YORK, N.Y. - The four guys from Il Divo will get some help from a Broadway veteran as they tour this spring singing musical theatre hits — Lea Salonga.

The classical music group announced Wednesday that Tony Award-winning Salonga, the original "Miss Saigon" in London and New York who also starred in a Broadway revival of "Flower Drum Song" in 2002, will join the upcoming North American tour "Il Divo — A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs of Broadway Live."

The tour kicks off on March 28 in Phoenix and ends in June, with stops in California, Washington, Canada, Utah, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

The tour is in support of Il Divo's latest album, the compilation of Broadway songs "A Musical Affair." Onstage, Salonga will help the group sing such hits as "Some Enchanted Evening" from "South Pacific," ''Tonight" from "West Side Story," ''Memory" from "Cats" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from "The Lion King."

Il Divo, which came together in 2003, is made up of tenor Urs Buhler of Switzerland, baritone Carlos Marin of Spain, pop artist Sebastien Izambard of France and tenor David Miller from the United States.
