Last Friday was one for the books for singer Katrina Velarde as she proved yet again her love for music in her major hit concert ‘SiKat Ako’ — this time, using a microphone instead of a ‘suklay’ for which she has been known by fans ever since.
Among those who performed with the Suklay Diva onstage at the New Frontier Theater were Bugoy Drilon, Daryl Ong, and Michael Pangilian known as the BuDaKhel trio, as well as the one and only Mr. Pure Gary Valenciano himself.
But fans were in for an even greater treat when the none other than Regine Velasquez surprised Katrina in her own show. Together, they sang the OPM classic ‘Araw Gabi’, written by Ryan Cayabyab and popularized by the Asia’s Songbird, in a powerful duet.
It’s no secret that Katrina has been an avid fan of Regine since she started joining in singing contests many years ago.
“Singing contest days ko palang pinaka-unang naging inspirasyon ko talaga ay ikaw, Songbird. Wala akong ibang masabi kundi I love you ate. I love you po so much, mahal kita,” she shared on Instagram in November last year.
