Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez finally ended today, October 17, 2018, the month-long rumors about her network transfer.
KAMI learned that the promising singer already signed a contract with ABS-CBN which makes her an official Kapamilya star.
Regine could not hold her tears as she walked through the red carpet that was specifically prepared for her just moments after she arrived at the compound.
Employees and other fans cheered for the veteran singer as she continued shedding tears while her husband, Ogie Alcasid, was patiently waiting.
High-ranking officials of the Kapamilya network such as President and CEO Carlo Katigbak, Chief Content Officer Cory Vidanes, TV Production Head Laurenti M. Dyogi, and business unit head Deo Endrinal gave Regine a hug as soon as she went down from her vehicle.
The former Kapuso diva told reporters that she could not contain her excitement and the feeling of being overwhelmed because of how she was welcomed in the network.
"I'm very happy, excited. Overwhelmed right now," she quipped.
"Thank you sa inyong lahat, sa lahat ng nagtatanggol, katawa. Thank you! This is another chapter in our lives. I'm very excited, I'm very nervous,” she added.
Holding a bouquet of yellow roses, Regine’s husband Ogie was in full support to his partner for her brave decision.
Ogie, being not new in the same situation anymore because he also transferred to ABS-CBN in 2016, expressed that he was also delighted for the warm welcome that his current network gave to his wife.
He even uttered that the network transfer of Regine is a milestone that can pave the way to also remove the nervousness that she is feeling.
“I’m very, very excited. At the same time, na-o-overwhelm ako sa grabe ng pag-welcome. I’m very excited for Regine,” he said.
“This is a milestone. This is something na hindi naman niya madaling ginawa. 'Pag nakita niya ‘to, I’m sure ‘yung kaba niya, ‘yung nerbiyos niya, maiibsan,” he added.
