MANILA -- Celebrity couple Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid will team up with fellow OPM artists Martin Nievera and Eric Santos for the pre-Valentine concert "#paMORE," which will be held on February 10 at Mall of Asia Arena.

"It's really a rare thing for someone to be in a cast like this. Sana more pa like this," Nievera said at a press conference on Monday.

According to Alcasid, they will be performing timeless hits.

"Sa totoo lang hindi pa kami nagmi-meeting pero ang gusto ko sanang i-propose na sinasang-ayunan naman ni Martin ay kumanta kami ng mga kantang minahal ng mga Filipino through the years. So isama na natin 'yung mga lumang-lumang kanta, especially 'yung mga kantang kinanta ng groups like The Platters, The Jacksons, The Osmonds, Earth Wind and Fire, Carpenters, Bread," Alcasid hinted.

For Santos, it's a dream come true to work with his idols.

"After po ng concert na ito puwede na po akong mamatay. Isa po itong dream come true for me. Dream come true na 'yung 'Royals,' mas dream come true pa ito kasi iniisip mo lang makakasama mo ang tatlong icons natin sa isang stage ay talagang speechless na ako sobra po," Santos said referring to his 2016 concert which also featured Nievera, Velasquez and Angeline Quinto.

"Actually isa ito sa ipinagdasal ko na matagal na panahon, na makasama ko sa stage ang mga tinitingala kong mang-aawit. Ang pagkakataong ito ay hindi dumarating sa lahat. I'm just so grateful and thankful to God na ibinigay sa akin ito. It's really a good blessing to me," added Santos.

Velasquez noted that while Santos is younger, he is not new in the music indudstry.

"Si Erik hindi na ng siya new artist kasi 15 years na siya sa business. He's such a great singer and alam ko na in this concert malaki ang mako-contribute niya. So I'm really very happy that he is with us," she said.
