Regine Velasquez ‘Loses’ Voice During Concert; Celebs Rally Behind Her

MANILA, Philippines - Regine Velasquez marked her 25th year in show business via the aptly titled concert ''Silver'' at the SM MOA Arena on Nov. 16 but it rained on her parade.

The singer ''lost'' her voice, straining to reach the high notes even before the middle of the concert.

''Regine Velasquez loses voice during Silver concert, offers free concert for ticket holders,'' Julius Babao tweeted.

Some celebrities showed an outpouring of sympathy seeing how the singer-actress struggled to perfect her songs.

TV host Kris Aquino offered that a 'virus' had ill-affected Regine's voice.

''Regine said it was a virus she caught but promised the fans in MOA a repeat so that in her words they could see the show they deserve,'' she tweeted.

This was followed by another message which said, ''Headed home. Will pray for Regine's health to recover soon.#reginianforever.''

Vice Ganda still lavished praise on Regine despite what happened.

''Whatever happens and whatever other people may say after tonight's concert @reginevalcasid will always be Asia's Songbird and the Greatest Diva for me!'' the stand-up comedian tweeted.

Erickson Raymundo, manager of Sam Milby, detailed what happened during the concert.

''Regine is crying expressing that she expected the crowd to leave coz of her lack of voice tonight. Audience here at regine's concert is very supportive despite her struggle to sing,'' Erickson said

Concert King Martin Nievera pointed out that it happens to the best of them.

''Regine we r praying for you! Tao ka Lang girl! Happens to us all. Now get better. Love you!'' he tweeted.

Gary Valenciano showed his support by tweeting, ''GO @reginevalcasid GO!...may your voice be His. May His excellence shine despite the seemingly imperfect circumstance your voice may be in.''

Fashion designer Rajo Laurel fully supports the singer despite what happened.

''I love you @reginevalcasid!!!!! We will be behind you forever!!!!'' he said.

Newscaster Julius Babao also tweeted,''@reginevalcasid gets help from friends on stage. They say she's suffering from a viral infection. Our prayers for your recovery Regine!''

The same concern was expressed by newscaster Karen Davila. ''Reading blow by blow tweets from friends on @reginevalcasid concert. Wow, I feel for her. Singing while sick :( Praying for you.''

Free concert repeat

Not one to shortchange her audience, Regine promised to all ''Silver'' concert ticketholders that she will mount a free concert for them at the same venue.

@bigbadbawang said, ''@reginevalcasid announces that she VOWS to repeat the concert for FREE for all the fans! That is CLASS!''
