Regine Velasquez received a warm welcome from Sarah Geronimo, Vice Ganda, and Judy Ann Santos on her first day as Kapamilya.
In what appeared to be a chance encounter, Regine had a happy reunion with Sarah in a dressing room at ABS-CBN yesterday, October 17.
It was quite a touching moment since Sarah got catapulted to stardom when she won the singing competition Star For A Night, hosted by Regine in IBC 13 in 2002.
Based on a video reposted by fans of Sarah, Regine was ecstatic upon seeing Sarah, who is at the top of the list of Kapamilya stars that Regine hopes to work with now that she’s with ABS-CBN.
The Asia's Songbird told a beaming Sarah, “Wala na akong kasama. Kailangan kasama kita! Kailangan kasama ko yung sweetheart ko. Pa-picture daw tayo.”
A self-confessed fan of Regine, Vice Ganda took to Instagram and shared his excitement over Regine’s big move to ABS-CBN.
“I am the happiest Yeheeeeeeeeeeyyyyy!!!!” commented Vice Ganda in the Instagram video of Regine’s contract signing with ABS-CBN yesterday.
Vice previously admitted that it was his "hero" Regine who helped him recover from his illness last February.
He also gave credit to Regine for sharing bits of wisdom with him when he was battling depression in May.
Regine’s good friend Judy Ann Santos was also overjoyed with the Asia’s Songbird decision to sign up with the Kapamilya network.
MORE KAPAMILYA GREETINGS
Congratulatory messages for Regine also came pouring in from Lea Salonga, Kim Chiu, Rufa Mae Quinto, and Alex Gonzaga, among others.
Lea even posted on her Facebook account an art card showing ABS-CBN's announcement of Regine's first day as a Kapamilya.
Kim, for her part, logged on to a live streaming of Regine's arrival at ABS-CBN, and posted her reaction on her own Instagram Story. Kim was in Sydney, Australia with fellow Kapamilya artists Maja Salvador, Enchong Dee, and Robi Domingo for the ASAP Live in Sydney show on October 20, of which Regine will also be a part.
Alex joined in on the fun by issuing a request for a duet with the Asia's Songbird.
