That dream meeting between fan David Archuleta and idol Regine Velasquez will have to wait. When informed that the American idol runner up wanted to meet her, Regine said she was flattered but expressed regret that it won't happen now because she has to leave tonight (Wednesday, May 13) for the second part of her concert with Pops Fernandez, Kuh Ledesma and Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Here's that video clip showing the interview with Regine from GMAnews.tv:
David Archuleta meanwhile went on a mall tour to promote his concert with David Cook on Saturday, May 16, at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. This video clip show him telling his fans, "Mahal kita!"
Archuleta's unmistakable appeal is his boyish enthusiasm, more like an adoring fan than the idol he has become.
And, this is a bit off-topic but while searching youtube for what Regine Velasquez song may have caught David Archuleta's fancy, I came across this blockbuster rendition of Lupang Hinirang by Asia's Song Bird in one of Manny Pacquiao's earlier fights. Time to get patriotic, ladies and gentlemen ... here is Miss Regine Velasquez with our national anthem:
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Mabuhay ang Pinoy!
