Aside from treating viewers to breathtaking world-class entertainment with outstanding performances from Kapamilya stars during the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2021, there were many moving moments that left everyone to tears.
One of these is the Christmas segment of the It’s Showtime family, wherein the hosts led by Vice Ganda granted the wish of a Reina Ng Tahanan contestant, ReiNanay Janet.
The It’s Showtime family first entertained the Madlang People with their band version of the SexBomb Girls’ Christmas ditty “Pikpirik-Pik.”
Vice then called on ReiNanay Janet on stage to tell her that he recalled her fervent wish during her stint in the contest: to reconcile with her estranged mother and brothers, whom she never spent her growing years.
ReiNanay Janet and siblings all went their separate ways to different provinces when their parents broke up and lost touch with her mother Teresita, who would rarely get in touch with her over the years. Reinanay Janet then had been treated to a wonderful surprise during the segment, as his brothers first appeared for an emotional reunion after all these years.
But as the It’s Showtime hosts started to sing Ariel Rivera’s classic “Sana Ngayong Pasko,” as Reinanay Janet was already joyful and contented with her reunion with her siblings, VTR showed that was not the only surprise in store for her. The It’s Showtime staff actually located her estranged mother in Masbate and brought her to the studio without ReiNanay Janet knowing.
Then as the hosts continued to sing, ReiNanay Janet got the biggest surprise- her Nanay Teresita actually entering the stage and meeting her in person for the first time after so many years. As her nanay Teresita approached ReiNanay Janet and her siblings, they all wept and hugged each other tightly. Even the It’s Showtime hosts sobbed joyfully as they witnessed the reunion.
This brought immense good vibes and buckets of tears to the viewers of the ABS-CBN Christmas Special.
