Regine Velasquez said that she is happy for longtime friend, fellow singer Jaya who recently moved to ABS-CBN. Jaya was introduced as a new judge of the noontime show It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan last Saturday, July 16.
Regine told entertainment site PEP.ph, “She texted me about it and I’m happy for her. That’s okay. I’m happy that she’s there.
“You know, kumare ko 'yon. Nakakatawa nga kasi she didn't have to do it, na to let me know, but she did it anyways because she has so much respect for me. I told her lang, 'I'm so happy for you. Blessing 'yan, mare,'” the Asia’s Songbird added.
Regine and Jaya have worked together for many years in the Sunday variety shows of GMA 7.
