Regine Velasquez to hold benefit concert in Biñan

Regine Velasquez-Alcacid and husband Ogie Alcacid are two of the most generous people in local showbiz when it comes to their time and talent.

Although they rarely talk about it publicly, they support a number of charitable institutions between them, and have continued to do so for years.

Regine, a doting wife, hands-on mom and tireless performer, proves this even more by holding the benefit concert The Songbird Sings in Bi�an in Laguna this week.

The concert will be held at the all-new entertainment-sports venue in the South, the Alonte Sports Arena, on December 6.

The arena is a flagship project of Bi�an, Laguna Mayor Len Alonte, and Regine’s concert is the first-ever to be hosted by the venue.

Mayor Len, one of the organizers of the charity concert, was impressed with how easy it was for them to invite Regine to perform for them.

Speaking with Regine’s sister-manager, Cacai Velasquez-Mitra, they explained that the concert proceeds would go to the Unlad Bi�an Foundation and Go Forward Bi�an Foundation. Without hesitation, Regine and her management said yes.

The concert is Regine’s first concert outside Metro Manila in a long time, and the mayor is thankful she agreed to do it.

“Kaya lalong sinusuwerte si Regine dahil she’s nice at bukas siya sa mga ganitong klase ng charity project,” Mayor Len noted.

More, Regine’s friends and fellow performers Jaya and Michael Pangilinan also gave their all-out support by agreeing to perform in the show.


What makes it even more special is that the concert brings good friends Regine and Jaya together on stage again after a long time.

Regine’s benefit concert in Bi�an, Laguna brings together many firsts, but it certainly won’t be the last in her many acts of generosity.

The Songbird Sings in�Bi�an is presented by GMA Network, PLDT Home, Smart, Dela Rosa Transit, Bi�an Mayor Len Alonte, Vice Mayor Arman Dimaguila, Santa Rosa Mayor Arlene Arcillas, Cong. Dan Fernandez, Ms. Dada Reyes, Kap. Em Arzola, and Bjborja Productions.

Tickets are available at SM Ticketnets nationwide.
