The 40-year-old petite soprano from Carcar City, Cebu, Sheryn Regis is back in ferrying her brand of music through an upcoming show on February 28 with a title: Back to Love – Shery Regis Live at the MusicMuseum.
Since her migration to the US, where she lives with her husband Earl Echeverri and her kid Lourdes in 2010 and after being cancer-free–the Crystal Voice of Asia is back to conquer the local music scene, again.
Her B.S. Secondary Education degree with a major in English came in handy as she teaches in Houston, Texas. On the side, she still manages to pursue her passion for singing as she gets some singing stints there.
Almost 10 years now, she’s now under new management with March On Entertainment Incorporated. Prior to her show on the 28, Regis is set to perform tomorrow in Tallahasse, Florida. On Valentine’s Day, she has a show: Free to Love – Sheryn Regis Live in Winnipeg. Then, she’ll be in Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada for another show.
In her stay in the US, she has learned new vocal techniques and added a more global flair to her musical style; and she’s thrilled to share it with her fans in the Philippines.
She secured a place as a grand finalist in ABS-CBN’s reality singing competition Star in a Million (2003) after advancing from the elimination rounds with Teresa Garcia. Regis was a judge favorite and was the only finalist to never place in the bottom two during the entire season. Despite her hair-raising, distinctive tone, and melismatic timbre, she only placed as a runner-up to Erik Santos after singing Wendy Moten‘s Come in Out of the Rain.
In May 2004, Regis officially launched her debut album under Star Records titled Come in Out of the Rain, produced by Jonathan Manahan. In the same year, popular songwriter Vehnee Saturno chose her to represent the Philippines in Voice of Asia in Kazakhstan. She sang Isang Lahi, Sana’y ‘Di Pangarap, Now More Than Ever, and Saturno’s original song Follow Your Dream. She went on to become the third Filipino to win the Two-Prize Silver Trophy after Jed Madela and Arnee Hidalgo.
Sheryn did remake Joey Albert‘s I Remember the Boy as Jasmine‘s theme song for ABS-CBN’s teleserye featuring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson in Sana Maulit Muli. She also sang the theme song for Maria Flordeluna, and revived the popular Kuh Ledesma hit Dito Ba for the hit afternoon drama, Prinsesa ng Banyera.
Come February 28, witness again her voice with a velvety yet tart, with insistent flutter, and occasional reserves of soul.

Since he left for the US three years ago and now based in the US, particularly in Los Angeles, Garth Garcia has been conquering the music scene. His commitment, dedication, and love for his craft have been paying off as he continues to shine abroad.
Garcia will release his new single Walang Mapapala featuring Geca in the first week of February this year.
Also, he will have a show with Carol Banawa and Stephen Speaks in San Francisco on February 8, while a post-birthday and a pre-Valentine solo show is also set on February 9.
A show in Florida with Jed Madela, Carol Banawa, and Jej Vinson on May 30 is also in his schedule.
Garcia, with his recognitions here in the Philippines–MOR101.9 Best New Artist in 2014 and New Male Recording Artist of the Year at the PMPC Star Awards for Music 2015, has propelled him to do better and expand his horizons.
It was an honor for him to sang along with Geneva Cruz, Dessa, Jessica Sanchez, KZ Tandingan, Aegis, Sheryn Regis, and Jed Madela.
As an artist, he takes pride in some of the recognitions he earned like the Asian Excellence Awards 2016‘s Oustanding Recording Artist, Gawad Musika 2017‘s Best Male Recording Artist of the Year, and a WCOPA Multi Medalist.
He’s also the RNB Artist at the Spotlight Awards 2018 in Los Angeles. He’s the only Filipino nominated at Asians on Film Festival 2019 in Hollywood for Best Music Video.
Apart from performing, he recently established his own business with his wife, a limited liability company (LLC). The sole proprietorship’s name is Starlink Productions. His company has produced three Geneva Cruz shows as well as the Gazini Ganados’ Meet-and-Greet.
Jace Roque, a fast-rising electronic dance music (EDM) artist and is like an ‘unaccepted prophet’ in his native place (Luke 4: 24b with emphasis).
He may have relatives like a supportive uncle Gino Padilla and a distant cousin Luke Mejares, he, as an independent artist, it isn’t all a walk in the park still.
The music icons attached to his name aren’t the tickets to his success.
It’s all about his efforts in promoting his brand of music and being noticed by Kobalt Music Group, the number one music publishing company in the UK. The said company comes next after Sony Music Entertainment in the US.
His SOBER single, which he launched this year, has streamed over 300,000 times on Spotify. New Music Friday Philippines, Tatak Pinoy, and OPM Rising–three of Spotify‘s most popular editorial playlist platforms did feature the said song.
For his latest single, LOVE launched on September 27, it now reached 100,000 views and was released by Kobalt Music.
He described this song as his way of opening to the world [again] after being heart-broken.
“It’s like putting down your walls and guards down and taking chances on another love,” Roque stressed.
Since he writes, produces, and arranges his songs–he finds it fit that the texts that go with his songs are from his personal experiences.
What’s admirable about Jace is his attitude. He’s not the type to give up his dreams by some great force. He’s proved it even in his second single when he competed along with the big names in the music industry. His song landed number 25 overall in the music list. It’s something that he takes pride in and grateful for all those who helped him reach his goals.
Roque is an epitome of real icon-in-the-making. His efforts may be small to the rest of the big-time music icons, but his love for his brand of music did not just limit him to the local audience but brought him to the world instead.
