Regine's ultimate idol till forever...is Barbra Streisand.
Of course, she loves Barbara Streisand - she idolizes her, she sings her. Her repertoires are never sans Streisand top hits. She often opens her shows with Streisand songs. Dedicating two concerts series (Songbird Sings Streisand in the early 90's and early 00's). And if the public clamors for more, her encore number is usually a Streisand original. But you see, Regine Velasquez has all reasons.
One of the very few local singers who could give justice to any Streisand ballad, Regine has the "K" to render Streisand songs which are meant to torture the vocal chords of a pretender.
The most unforgettable moment and also a dream come true was watching Barbra Streisand's expensive concert LIVE on its first leg of tour in Los Angeles dated November 20, 2006 at the Staples Center called "STREISAND: The Tour". Because she also thought that it would be Streisand's last concert.
She also watched the concert with her parents Mang Gerry and Mommy V.
Barry Manilow, Kurt Rusell, Tom Hanks, Goldie Hawn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rosie O’Donell, Shirley Maclaine were among the audience.
"Fan na nga raw siya ni Barbra, fan pa siya ng mga nasa audience, kaya talagang panay ang kwento ni Regine tungkol sa kanyang experience," says the friend of Regine.
