About Regine Velasquez, Valesques-Alcasid
Regine Velasquez (born Regina Encarnacion Ansong Velasquez on April 22, 1970) is a Filipino singer, actress, record producer, TV host, stage director, fashion designer, and commercial and print model. She is dubbed as the Asia’s Songbird after winning the 1989 Asia Pacific Singing Contest in Hong Kong and is widely known for possessing a wide vocal range.
Velasquez was the first Filipino to stage a solo concert at the Main Hall of Carnegie Hall, part of Carnegie Hall’s centennial-year concert series. In 2000, she performed the country’s millennial theme, televised in 55 broadcast networks throughout the world to coincide with midnight in Manila.
“In Love With You,” a duet with Jacky Cheung, reached MTV Asia and Channel V music charts. She has collaborated with artists such as Paul Anka, David Hasselhoff, 98 Degrees, Brian McKnight, Mandy Moore, Ronan Keating, Stephen Bishop, Jim Brickman, Peabo Bryson, Jeffrey Osborne, Dave Koz, Lea Salonga, Grasshopper, Coco Lee, Michel Legrand, David Pomeranz, Eduardo Capetillo, Fernando Carrillo, and Billy Crawford.
She embarked on several television and film projects, receiving a Best Actress Award for her portrayal of a mentally challenged woman in Maalaala Mo Kaya. Velasquez also formed IndiMusic (iMusic), a record label partnered with the late Bella Tan’s Universal Records. She is currently managed by Aria Productions. [source: Facebook Bio]
María Luisa Ramsey, better known as Jaya, is a Filipina soul music singer, rapper, dancer, record producer, presenter, and actress of mixed Visayan and Jamaican descent. She is a contract artist of GMA Artist Center. She is the first Filipino recording artist to chart in the United States, as her debut single “If You Leave Me Now” peaked at 44 at the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Ramsey was re-christened “Jaya” in 1989 by her American producer after signing a record deal in the United States. After one year, Jaya moved to Florida, where she was offered an opportunity to finish an album that had already been started by another artist.
1995 was a turning point in Jaya’s musical career. Pilita Corrales, dubbed “Asia’s Queen of Songs”, noticed her voice after Jaya did an opening act for Corrales, Carmen Soriano, the late Bert “Tawa” Marcelo, and Elizabeth in the United States. Corrales then asked Jaya if she would like to return to Manila and record an album, to which she agreed. Jaya returned to the Philippines and signed a record deal with Viva Records in March 1995 and completed her first local album. Five songs were recorded in the US while the rest were done in the Philippines. [Source: Wiki]
