JACKY CHEUNG ON REGINE VELASQUEZ
CASHFLOW MAGAZINE MARCH 2002
ISSUE 37, Jacky Cheung interview by Clarence Hui
CLARENCE HUI : You have worked with many female singers now
including Priscilla (Chan), Shirley (Kwan) - Let's face it, almost
every Polygram artist at that time. Sandy (Lam) and Kit (Chan), in
your musical, Snow, Wolf, Lake. If you had to choose, who would
you say was the most memorable?
JACKY CHEUNG : I would have to say Regine ( Velasquez ).
Her Singing is totally awesome. But it isn't just her technique.
Yes, she has an excellent range, etc, but it wasn't until I was actually
in the studio to hear her record the song that I realized just how good
she is. The way she used her voice, and how she rendered every note
and phrase left me speechless. I just stood there wondering, "How
am I going to match this, or compliment it to do it justice?" It was
that serious, but also that wonderful."
