REGINE VELASQUEZ BIO

Hers is the stuff you read only in fairytale books. But Regine Velasquez's story is no fantasy. Asia's Songbird -- a tag given by fans and the media -- continues to soar, much like when she started out some 16 years ago as an awkward teenager who tried her luck - and won! - in every amateur singing contest back in her hometown in Bulacan. MTV Asia viewers will remember Regine as the winner of the Favourite Artist Philippines award at the first ever MTV Asia Awards held in Singapore on February 2, 2002.
Behind every success story is a tale of hard work and perseverance. Regine paid her dues singing in honky-tonk beer joints and mahjong halls unmindful of her raucous listeners just to earn a living. She went on to clinch the Grand Champion title in Ang Bagong Kampeon on nationwide television, after which there was no stopping this multitalented provincial lass from conquering more heights.

These days, Regine is better known as the country's reigning Queen of the Pop Charts, Premier Music Diva, and Box Office Queen of Movies to boot. And why not? All her albums are chartbusters and bestsellers, and all her films are certified hits as well.
