In a rare moment, Regine Velasquez and Jed Madela, two of the most celebrated singers in the local music scene, shared the stage with a soaring duet of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
The performance happened during Madela’s 15th anniversary concert at the Araneta Coliseum last week, where Velasquez was among the guests.
Madela said he had long hoped to perform on stage with Velasquez, whom he credited for inspiring him to hone his singing talent and eventually pursue a music career.
Velasquez only had warm words for Madela, who she described in jest as an “alien” because of his vocal prowess.
Fans of both singers can look forward to further collaborations as Velasquez now joins Madela as one of the mainstays of the revamped “ASAP Natin ‘To” every Sunday.
