'The Year That Was For Regine' (The Best of Regine Velasquez-Alcasid 2013 In Review)

Blog Widget by LinkWithin

In January 5, 2013, Regine has opened the year with her crown still firmly in place during her Silver Rewind concert. The songbird fulfilled her promise, and her fans showed up again, filling the Mall of Asia Arena to capacity. It was clear that she has not only regained her roar but she also had a resounding redemption of reputation by the time the concert ends. The grand concert which was attended by celebrities and known personalities. It was musically directed by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab and Raul Mitra and was accompanied by the 60-piece Manila Symphony Orchestra. Ogie AlcasidJanno GibbsMichael V. and Lani Misalucha were the guest artists during her first Silver Concert on November 16, 2012, while JayaRachelle Ann GoLa DivaGloc-9KC MonteroJose Manalo and Wally Bayola guested during the repeat.

In February 14, 2013, Regine Velasquez had a sold-out Valentine spectacle which combined the talents and charm of iconic show-stopping ex-couple Martin Nievera and Pops Fernandez and Velasquez herself with husband Ogie Alcasid. The concert which was also held at the biggest arena in the country, the Mall of Asia Arena, arguably stole the thunder from other concerts held to embrace the heart's day - even those that featured international stars. The successful and much-talked about Foursome Valentine concert that gathered four of the country's singing icons for the first time also had a repeat performance due to public demand. The highly anticipated event happened on March 16, 2013 at the same venue, with a very special guest that definitely intensified the already powerful foursome team-up, Gary Valenciano. The concert being counted as the talk of town was greatly justified when it made the global guide list of last-minute Valentine date destinations as jotted down by CNN's travel writer Pam Grout. In the article titled "50 Cities, 50 Last-Minute Valentine's Dates," Manila was included at number 21, with the "Foursome" show suggested as the "historic Valentine's concert" to catch.
April 21, Regine celebrated her 43rd birthday (April 22) with a 'Rock' themed production number on Party Pilipinas w/ Rachel Ann Go and La Diva even though she needs to rest her voice that time due to her 'acid reflux' that made her voice hoarse. That was her last performance on Party Pilipinas where it was changed to an all new reformatted show called Sunday all Stars wherein she became one of the judges until she said that she'll only be doing it once a month to take care of her family obligations especially that it's on Sundays. 
Another recognition has been received by Regine this year, which she bagged the Best Performance By An Actress In A Leading Role (Musical/Comedy) trophy in her film Of All The Things at the 10th Golden Screen Awards. The film which she starred together with his leading man in the film Aga Muhlach also received the same award in male category. This is considered as a big achievement for Velasquez since her league is in performing in entertainment.
