Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid remains a loyal Kapuso as she signed another two-year exclusive contract with GMA Network, Inc.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, GMA Entertainment TV's Senior Vice President Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Consultant for Business Development Department II Marivin T. Arayata, GMA Vice President for Drama Productions Redgie Acuña-Magno, GMA Vice President for Corporate Communications Angela Javier-Cruz, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Assistant Vice President for Drama Productions Cheryl Ching-Sy, GMA Assistant Vice President for Talk, Variety, Musical and Specials Darling de Jesus, Program Managers for ETV Ruth Mariñas and Mae Zambrano and Regine's manager Cacai Mitra.
During the contract signing attended by the network’s top executives, Regine said she is very happy to renew her contract with GMA 7 which has been her home network for almost two decades, “I am happy na dito pa rin ako sa GMA. I’ve been working with the network for almost 20 years. I know practically all the people, the bosses…I’m very grateful na hindi nila ako masyadong pine-pressure. They’ve been very good to me. For four years, I was given time to be with my son. I was given a very relaxed schedule which I really, really appreciate. Ngayong taon pa lang ako ulit magfu-full blast na magtatrabaho. I’m also excited to go back to work.”
“What I like about working with GMA is they let my creativity come out. And as an artist being in the business for a long time, minsan mahirap na sina-shut off ka. Sila, they give me the opportunity to be involved, to be heard kung maganda naman ang suggestion, they make sure it is incorporated. In all the projects that I’ve done in GMA, I’ve always been involved,” adds Regine.
Atty. Gozon has nothing but praises for Regine and he is very grateful with Regine’s renewal of contract, “We are also loyal to her. We are glad that she chose us.”
Rasonable said they are very pleased that Regine continues to affirm her loyalty to GMA as the network has already lined up two new shows for her this year, “As Atty. Gozon also said, we have been loyal to her and its very gratifying na nasusuklian ‘yon kasi she remains to be loyal to GMA and to us. For this year, she has her calendar full. She will continue with Sarap Diva. We are giving her a soap, we are already talking with her. And there’s another one, a once a week show. You’ll see her singing and making people laugh. So, we are excited about that.”
