MANILA - Fans of Regine Velasquez and Lea Salonga are in for a treat this coming weekend.
On Monday, Velasquez announced on her Instagram page that Salonga will be joining her on her online birthday concert on Saturday, April 25.
The virtual show, which will also feature Velasquez’s son Nate, will be for the benefit of the Bantay Bata program of ABS-CBN.
Titled “One Night with Regine,” the birthday concert will be streamed live on ABS-CBN’s Facebook page and YouTube channel at 8 p.m.
Velasquez's actual birthday is on April 22.
On “ASAP Natin ‘To” last Sunday, Velasquez said her wish on her birthday is for the coronavirus pandemic to stop so people around the world could go back to their normal lives.
“Sana matapos na ang lahat ng ito so we can go back to our normal lives. Siyempre, I want my family to be healthy and safe," the Asia's Songbird said.
"Ayun lang naman. Pero we all have the same prayers nga. Sana may maka-dicscover na ng vaccine, ng cure, para hindi na tayo mag-alala when we go out there,” she added.
Since the declaration of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon, Velasquez has been actively participating in fundraising projects to help those affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
