Maintaining a healthy friendship in a competitive industry can be quite a challenge.
But not in the case of Jaya, who found a real friend in Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez.
Two of the country's top singers have been nurturing their friendship for more than 20 years.
The two first met in 1996, but became close friends in 2000 when Jaya joined SOP.
On March 21, 2017, Jaya celebrated her 46th birthday.
Known for being generous to her friends and co-stars, Regine gave her "kumare" a special gift: a pair of Gucci wedges.
According to the brand's website, the hibiscus red embroidered suede platform espadrille has a price tag of $695 U.S. dollars or PHP 34, 831.31
The Tawag ng Tanghalan judge wrote on Instagram, "Susmaryoseeeep Mare naman nakakaloka ang gift mo.
"So appreciate your love and friendship Mare salamat!!!! God bless you always"
Happy birthday, Jaya!
