We all love our icons, and so does our Gandang Gabi Vice host Vice Ganda. Vice welcomed two of the biggest stars in the showbiz industry- Regine Velasquez and Sharon Cuneta on GGV’s October 6 episode.
They were both all smiles and were warmly greeted by the crowd, and Vice couldn’t be happier to have them back as his guests.
Sharon and Regine didn’t fail to impress audiences when they gave a show-stopping number as they sang “Urong Sulong.” Vice joined them on center stage and was very starstruck to have such great legends on his show. He couldn’t stop praising Sharon and reiterated that she was indeed an icon that so many people look up to, including him. He began to joke about the jewelry pieces the Megastar was donning. Sharon said that her rings were given by her husband Kiko Pangilinan and her daughter Frankie. She also shared that she gives gifts and jewelry to people who matter to her, but she chooses to be discreet about it. The Unkabogable Star was also amazed by Regine’s beautiful ring, and she proudly flaunted it for everyone to see.
The Megastar and the Songbird didn’t seem to run out of fond words for each other during their GGV guesting. Sharon revealed that she has a couple of nicknames for Regine, apart from the ones that we already know. “Ang tawag ko sa kanya, ‘my Nana,’” Sharon stated. Regine admitted that she has always been an avid fan of Sharon and recounted the days when she would listen to her music back when she lived in the province. She recalled that time when she heard “Mr. DJ” and she fell in love with Sharon’s voice right away. “Sabi ko, ang ganda naman ‘tong kanta na ‘to,” Regine exclaimed. She also narrated that she would pass by the market place when she was younger, and stopped by the stores where Sharon’s posters were displayed.
Sharon shared that she idolizes Lorna Tolentino, Vilma Santos, Nora Aunor and Hilda Koronel. She elaborated that Vilma was her neighbor back then, and became one of the people who admires the Star For All Seasons. She would send fruits to Vilma and eventually she mustered enough courage one day and finally asked for an autograph.
Vice had to ask Sharon what her favorite songs are. Sharon replied “Ikaw” and “My Only Love,” just to name a few. But she pointed out that she also liked a couple of Regines songs, especially “Pangako.”
And since Vice couldn’t get enough of the two OPM icons and their talent, he made a last request and asked them sing “To Love Again”, which they did flawlessly.
