MANILA - Vice Ganda and Regine Velasquez reprised one of the highlights of their sold-out Valentine concert for the eighth anniversary special of “Gandang Gabi Vice.”
Held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at the Resorts World Manila last June 11, the special episode aired on ABS-CBN on Sunday. It featured Vice Ganda singing Velasquez’s hits such as “Dadalhin” and “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw.”
Velasquez, in turn, performed some of the TV host’s novelty songs like “Boom Panes” and “Whoops Kiri.”
All proceeds from the show went to ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center.
Before their performances, Vice Ganda revealed how Velasquez continues to serve as his inspiration until today.
“Alam niyo po, ako, wala na akong katiwa-tiwala sa sarili ko sa pagkanta. Si Regine lang yata 'yung isa sa nagpu-push sa akin na kumanta ako lagi,” Vice Ganda said.
“Nung nag-concert po kami, sobrang special po nung concert. Dream come true 'yun para sa akin. Parang isinabuhay ko 'yung pangarap ng maraming mga bakla na makasama si Regine Velasquez sa concert,” he added.
Returning the compliment, Velasquez said it was also a dream come true for her to take the stage with Vice Ganda, whose shows she only used to watch when she was still with GMA-7.
Velasquez and Vice Ganda currently are part of ABS-CBN’s “Idol Philippines” where they both sit as judges along with James Reid and Moira dela Torre.
