Aicelle Santos Proves She's Real Trouper, Continues To Perform In 'Miss Saigon' Despite Her Painful Knee Injury

AICELLE SANTOS continues to perform in her role as Gigi Van Tranh in “Miss Saigon”, doing the showstopping number “The Movie in My Mind” with precision and excellence like always. But as she does her sing-and-dance role, she continues to fight her knee ailment called Plica Syndrome.

“It means inflammation of the joints in my knees,” she says. “It’s difficult to explain, but so far, carry ko pa naman. Kahit may pain, naitatawid ko pa naman ang performance ko halos gabi-gabi. Basta, fight lang. I claim my healing from our Lord Jesus Christ who turns me into a Warrior Princess in my role as Gigi.”

Her contract with the “Miss Saigon” musical tour is for one year. “So, please pray for me na matapos ko naman ang contract ko with them. Please pray for me na gumaling na ang tuhod ko at makapag-perform ako without any hitches every night. Tinatanong naman nila kung gusto ko bang papalitan muna ako, but I assure them na kaya ko pa. With all your prayers and with the Lord’s help, I’m sure maitatawid ko ito for one year.”
