Biography

Not only is she a talented, award-winning singer, but she is very beautiful as well. A mention of her name is usually followed by panting and perspiration. Almost anyone who has lived in the Asian subcontinent over the past 10 to 15 years will have heard of Regine Velasquez.

She is to Asia what Jennifer Lopez is to Americans, a stunner, multi talented singer, and performer.

All these albums have been smash hits, and her vocal talent is widely revered in her home country and neighboring countries as well.

Born Regine Encarnacion Ansong Velasquez into a loving and supportive family on 22 April 1970 in Manila, her gift for singing was recognized by her parents at an early age. Regine was enrolled in local and national level singing contents and though she didn’t win every one of these contests she did perform very well.

 No matter what I do or say
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
That your looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try
Believe me when I say It’s hard to say goodbye
