Regine Velasquez Was A Total Stunner In Her “Solo” Concert

“Asia’s Songbird” Regine Velasquez stunned the audience as she performed in perfect shape from start to finish

Regine Velasquez’s recent concert reaped praises from fans as the performance lasted long at the Samsung Performing Arts Theater last weekend, February 17 and 18, without a line-up of front acts to accommodate her up to the finish line. Living up to the show’s title “Solo,” she was on stage alone as her band and back-up artists were also out of plain sight and was strategically positioned somewhere behind a backdrop.

Regine set off the party attuning to the concertgoers with hitmaker Donna Lewis’ 1996 popular hit “I Love You, Always Forever” as she surprised the crowd with a stunning yet soothing opening. The songbird serenaded the audience with songs that are not a regular in her repertoire namely “Okay Lang Ako” by Parokya ni Edgar, “Paraluman” by Adie, and “Binibini” by Zack Tabudlo.

Similarly, she performed international pieces such as JVKE’s “Golden Hour,” Charlie Puth’s “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” and Dua Lipa’s “Love Again.” Regine’s range allowed her to render modern-day, millennial-favorite tracks flawlessly, heating up collective cheers from the full-house theater. 

With over three decades of experience in the department, Regine’s musical career is a mold not any name can easily fit. At 52, she is an exemplar of her craft and an icon to look up to in the industry and of course, can still pull off her signature stratospheric notes. Other noteworthy singles that stuck with the listeners include international love songs such as “The Winner Takes It All” by Abba, “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell, “I’ll Be Over You” by Toto.

Clad in Cocoy Lizaso’s creations, Regine donned a set of stylish dresses and outfits onstage. Raul Mitra, Regine’s musical director, made the singer-actress’ slate of contemporary music more manageable and compatible with Regine’s musical capacity. Her manager-slash-sister, Cacai Velasquez-Mitra, co-produced the concert, while Paolo Valenciano, son of Mr. Pure Energy Gary V, directed the show. 

Regine is slated to return to the Samsung Performing Arts Theater to take on the last two remaining shows for “Solo” on February 24 and 25.
