Regine Velasquez grew up in a musically-oriented family in Balagtas, Bulacan.
She joined and won her 1st amateur singing contest at the age of six, singing "Buhat", a Rico Puno song.
It was in the year 1984 when Regine joined an amateur singing contest in nearby Baliwag. One of the prizes
was a slot television show, "Ang Bagong Kampeon". For 8 consecutive weeks, she was "Kampeon",

Her debut album went platinum. Her more famous songs include "Urong-sulong," "Kung Maibabalik Ko Lang,"
"Love me Again," "Narito Ako," "Promdi" and "Please be Careful with my Heart," a duet with Jose M. Chan.
Regine has also had a regular television show, and has appeared in movies and various commercials.
