Three GMA-7 prime singers sang their way to the hearts of the people of Dagupan during their concert held in Pangasinan last weekend.
Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Christian Bautista, and Julie Anne San Jose headlined the 3 Stars 1 Heart concert held at CSI Stadia Jimmy L. Fernandez Center in Dagupan, Pangasinan last Saturday, April 14.
The two-hour show showcased the singing prowess of the three Kapuso singers by rendering songs from different genres: rock, pop, and ballad songs.
The concert also celebrated OPM music when they sang medleys of OPM icons, such as the rock band Eraserheads and the hit songs of composer George Canseco.
A highlight of the program was when Regine, Christian, and Julie Anne performed their winning pieces in singing competitions that they joined in the past.
“Yun po talaga ang history naming tatlo, we all came from singing contests that were shown on TV,” explained Asia’s Songbird at one point.
Regine sang “In Your Eyes” by George Benson, Christian sang Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” while Julie Anne belted “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus.
Another notable moment of the show was when Asia’s Songbird praised Julie Anne’s talent for composing songs, which the former says is her shortcoming as an artist.
“Did you know this beautiful young lady here also writes songs?” Regine asked the crowd.
“Andami po talagang talent ng batang ito, nagra-rap, magaling kumanta, nagbe-belt, marunong din magluto ‘to,” she quipped.
Turning serious, Regine continued, “What I wanted to say to you is that you should keep writing songs, like I always encourage my husband pag medyo tinatamad na,” she said as she referred to singer-composer Ogie Alcasid.
“Because that’s one thing na di ko kayang gawin, talent po talaga ‘yan.
“Binibigay po talaga ‘yan ni Lord and you’re supposed to share it.”
She told the younger singer, “So keep writing beautiful songs, Julie, kasi talagang kasama ‘yan sa napakarami mong talent.”
For her part, Julie Anne stated that Regine has always been her inspiration as a singer.
“Isa kayo sa mga inspirations ko talaga.”
The young singer dubbed as Asia's Pop Sweetheart added, “Alam mo, Ate, kinakabahan pa rin ako pag nakaka-duet kita.”
The two proceeded to sing a medley of Regine’s signature songs and revivals, such as “Sana Maulit Muli,” “Ikaw,” and “Dadalhin.”
The 3 Stars 1 Heart concert will be staged at the Dubai World Trade Centre on June 16, 2018.
Here are highlights of the 3 Stars 1 Heart concert:
Regine showed her funny side when she cracked jokes with her fellow Kapuso singers Christian Bautista and Julie Anne San Jose.
Asia's Songbird drew loud cheers from the audience whenever she hit those high notes.
In one performance, Regine and Julie Anne sang a duet with the latter playing the piano at the same time.
