Regine Velasquez opened up about how the death of Ogie Alcasid’s father made 2020 a very painful year for their family.
In her interview with “Magandang Buhay”, Regine talked about the struggles that their family had to face due to the pandemic.
Among these, the passing of Herminio Alcasid Sr., Ogie’s dad, was among the most difficult.
"Medyo lost kami noon. Kasi biruin mo ilang buwan 'yon na okay siya.
“Kasi they were just in the house and then suddenly he went out one time and then that was it," Regine shared.
The Kapamilya singer revealed that Ogie was able to see his father for the last time in March 2020.
The Asia’s Songbird also gave some piece of advice to the audience, especially to those who are not taking COVID-19 seriously.
"Minsan kasi may mga bagay na hindi natin papaniwalaan only because hindi natin na-experience first-hand. Pero kapag nangyari sa inyo, doon mo lang masasabi na totoo talaga," she said.
Regine emphasized how important it is to be vigilant in keeping the coronavirus away from ourselves and our families. She reminded the viewers about the safety precautionary measures and some of the healthy habits that can help everyone stay safe.
“Hugas ng kamay, magsuot ng face shield, ng mask o kung ano ang puwede niyong gawin. Mag-vitamins.
“Alam niyo ako hindi ako nagba-vitamins nung kabataan ko pero ngayon as in religiously I take my vitamins talaga.
“Exercise will help also and have fresh air," Regine stated.
Regine Velasquez is among the most popular singers in the Philippines. She is known as the ‘Asia’s Songbird’. She is married to singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid, and together they have one son.
Ogie’s father passed away last September. Although the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” judge did not reveal the cause of his death, he expressed his grief for what happened. In a previous report by KAMI, there was a time when Ogie was victimized by a death hoax, to which Regine reacted.
