She's had her share of dramatic scenes on television, but young actress Kyline Alcantara had a truly emotional experience IRL when she came face to face with her idol Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.
During the press conference of her upcoming solo concert TAKE FL16GHT, the new GMA Records artist shared how the rare privilege of seeing Asia's Songbird up close made her feel. "Nung kumanta po si Ms. Regine, naiyak po ako promise! Kasi ang lapit ko sa kanya. Kumbaga... kung may VIP po mas more sa VIP," she told MYX. "Iba po pala talaga yung feeling na nabibigay ni Ms. Regine sa mga aspiring singers like me."
Kyline also recalled the words of the OPM icon. "She told me na, 'Just keep on singing'. Kahit na beterana na daw po siya hindi pa rin po siya tumitigil na mag-practice. 'Kahit cliche 'to, practice and practice hanggang sa kaya mo'."
It’s every aspiring singer’s dream to meet you and have a photo with you, and I am so happy to have one. Isa po kayo sa mga taong naging inspirasyon ko para ipagpatuloy ang pagkanta and I am so happy na napanood ko po kayo kumanta ng malapitan (sobrang kinilig po ako. Naluha nga po ako eh🙈). Thank you po sa inspirasyon at sa suporta sa aming mga nangangarap na maging kagaya po ninyo. ❤️🌻
