.......more about ROOTS TO RICHES

This Sunday (May 24), get to know more about Regine Velasquez as GMA Network brings to light the first-ever docu-musical special that unveils the journey of Asia’s Songbird from her humble beginnings to her immeasurable achievements in “Regine… Roots to Riches.”

Airing on GMA-7’s Sunday Night Box-Office (SNBO), “Regine… Roots to Riches” is a very touching and inspiring concert special staged at the gymnasium of Centro Escolar University in Malolos, Bulacan.

This docu-musical special is a creative mix of production numbers and documentary videos that traces the roots of Regina Encarnacion Velasquez, whose singing career started by joining hundreds of amateur singing contests all over Bulacan and even on national television.

The Asia’s Songbird traces back both the celebrities and ordinary people who have helped, contributed and supported in their own little way and even molded her to become who she is today.

Among those who have made a great contribution in reaching Regine’s dream are Mang Estong, the tricycle driver who used to take her to singing competitions in different towns; Mrs. Susan Galvez, her grade school teacher who used to make her gowns or costumes for free; Mang Gerry, her father, trainor and first manager; Ronnie Henares, Regine’s former manager and Cacai Mitra, her sister and current manager.

Joining Regine in this musical extravaganza are personalities who have been part of her success – Ms. Pilita Corrales, the host of “Ang Bagong Kampeon;” close friend Pops Fernandez, host of “Penthouse Live” where she made her first guest appearance on TV; Mr. Jose Mari Chan, with whom she did her first recorded duet. Also in the show are two of the country’s most sought-after leading men, Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo.

But the biggest surprise of the docu-musical special is the showdown between Regine and her nemesis from her childhood years who competed against her note for note in amateur singing contests – Eva Castillo. In fact, Eva defeated Regine in almost all the amateur singing contests they competed except for one when the judges announced a tie. The reunion of these two long lost friends and singing contest rivals is one of the highlights of the docu-musical special that the viewers should not miss.

Walk down memory lane with Regine as she sings the songs that have seen her through her years in the industry – “And I Am Telling You,” “Love Me Again,” “Narito Ako,” and “Bakit Ako Mahihiya.” Watch out for Regine’s special performances with Mr. Jose Mari Chan singing the classic “Please Be Careful With My Heart,” and with Ms. Pilita Corales performing the big band version of Beyonce’s international hit “Single Ladies.”

This is the side of Regine that fans are dying to see. Witness as Asia’s Songbird traces her roots on “Regine… Roots to Riches” this Sunday on SNBO, right after Ful Haus, only on GMA-7.
