Regine Velasquez And Sarah Geronimo Are Headlining #Unified, A Valentine's Day 2020 Concert
For the first time ever, Asia's Songbird and the country's Popstar Royalty are getting together for a two-night show in time for the year's most romantic day
Regine Velasquez=Alcasid and Sarah Geronimo have made it official: they're set to headline #Unified, a two-night concert scheduled to take place on February 14 and 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The show will be the first time that Asia's Songbird and the country's Popstar Royalty will perform together in a production of their own.
Keeping much of the project a secret, Regine shared a series of photos of her and Sarah on her Instagram, while Viva Artists Agency's Facebook page posted a seconds-long teaser of the two superstars in a shoot with Mark Nicdao.
The photographer himself said that "something great is coming up" as he posted more BTS shots of the duo.
However, in an interview with ABS-CBN News, Sarah opened up about feeling honored to be paired with an icon like Regine, singing praises for the veteran performer. She recalled joining Star for a Night, the singing contest which Regine hosted and launched her career as a teenage rising star. According to Regine, she had spotted Sarah's undeniable potential even before she began her performance.
Sarah also laughed about the mounting pressure to match Regine's stage presence come the concert, but Regine assured her that there was nothing to worry about—even that she had surpassed her over the years!
Check out the full interview below:
The tandem also talked about the connection they have offstage, explaining that both of them had worked as hard as they did in order to support their families. Their shared background has made their concert all the more meaningful.
After hilariously calling Regine the "patron saint" of aspiring singers in the Philippines (as in, a singer who comes from humble beginnings whose dreams of making it big eventually come true), Sarah mentioned wanting to sing Regine's biggest hits onstage including "Tuwing Umuulan," while Regine looked forward to a duet for "Tala."
In the end, regardless of which songs Regine and Sarah will perform for their fans, we're sure that they'll be met with rousing applause and cheers for encores from an energetic audience.
With less than three months to go until their big concert, anticipation for the performance of the year is quickly reaching fever pitch!
