This early part of the year, Regine Velasquez made her presence felt for all pretenders to her throne, announcing via a big concert that she is very much around and still a force to reckon with in the singing industry.
Regine opened 2013 with her 25th anniversary concert, aptly titled “Silver” on Jan. 5 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The free repeat concert was an offshoot of her first “Silver” concert last November, when she “lost” her voice due to viral throat infection on the very first day of the concert.
The featured songs on the free repeat concert are associated with Regine’s singing career and include even some of her unreleased songs. Her special guests include Jaya, Rachelle Ann Go, and La Diva. Gloc-9, and Wally and Jose.
Her husband Ogie Alcasid and her good friend Janno Gibbs also performed an amusing version on her ‘90s song “Promdi.”
The four-hour concert was arranged and directed by Ryan Cayabyab and Raul Mitra. Musical scoring was provided by the Manila Symphony Orchestra.
