Regine Velasquez Biography

Before we even heard of her Cinderella story, there was just her voice - the power and intensity of which was never heard of in the Philippine music history. It became all the more incredible when one beheld the singer, a young lass whose delicate frame and features belied her fragile aura. The frailty vanishes, however, with the first bar of a song and in its place, a startling blend of raw emotion and audible beauty is experienced. That magic is Regine Velasquez. Regine Velasquez's humble beginnings in Bulacan has not dispirited this naturally-talented singer in transcending the performance calibers of formally-trained singers of her generation. After her rounds of provincial competitions, Regine Velasquez's first big break was when she garnered the top prize in the celebrated Bagong Kampeon singing contest. Regine Velasquez was then featured in the popular Penthouse Live television show which launched a string of lounge acts in notable clubs and discos. A brief six years later, with the prestigious Asia-Pacific Singing Contest grand prize as her crowning glory, Regine Velasquez has become a catchphrase among many audiences and music impressarios. Regine Velasquez has to her credit six record albums, two of which went Gold and four reached Platinum status. Moreover, Regine Velasquez has released nineteen singles and a hit duet with songwriter Jose Mari Chan ("Please Be Careful With My Heart") whose album won eight Platinum awards.
