Regine Velasquez Will Not Vote For Mar Roxas And Was Banned To Perform in Araneta Coliseum
By Alon Calinao Dy: Rumours spread all over social media that the Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas asked the Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez to endorse him, but the singer refused to participate and campaign for LP presidential bet and former DILG secretary Roxas.
Regine Velasquez had a misunderstanding against Kris Aquino since 2015 when President Benigno Aquino did not attend arrival honors for the slain elite SAF troopers. Instead, Pnoy went to car plant ceremony.
Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez did not like what happened for having an incompetent and insensitive government. Although Kris Aquino tried to defend her brother, these SAF officers' lives could not be brought back to life.
Roxas seemed to forget that Regine Velasquez lived and studied in Leyte when she was still young. When super typhoon Yolanda hit Eastern Visayas particularly the city of Tacloban, the singer was hurt by large numbers of casualties. The Yolanda victims were unhappy about the government's slow response to help them.
Until now these survivors are asking this simple question: where are billions of Yolanda funds? Many countries donated money to these victims during the natural calamity, but the financial assistance seemed did not reach to these concerned people.
This is probably why Regine was hurt so much by series of painful events because Leyte was already part of her life. As netizens would say, perhaps there is no Regine Velasquez today if she did not stay in this region.
Because the Asia's Songbird did not endorse Daang matuwid Mar Roxas for president, rumours spread like a contagious disease that she was banned to perform in Araneta Coliseum Big Dome.
Regine Velasquez-Alcasid is one of the most admired and respected female celebrities in the Philippines. I truly admire her courage because she is not a paid celebrity.
