Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez paid tribute to her father Gerardo "Mang Gerry" Velasquez, who passed on last Monday, February 3, through her Instagram account (reginevalcasid).
The photo's caption is, "The leader of the band, Mang Gerry, joined his creator 1:39pm today. Thank you for praying for him during all these time that he has been fighting for his life. God bless you all."
As she and her family mourn over Mang Gerry's passing, she posted another picture of her father together with her son Nate last Tuesday, February 4. "With lolo" was the photo's caption.
Yesterday, February 6, Regine posted an old photo of her father with her to express how much she misses Mang Gerry, who trained her how to sing and supported her all the way.
People, on the other hand, keep on extending their support for her family. In response, Regine thanked everyone and said, "Doon ako naiiyak, doon ako nao-overwhelm. Kasi ang daming nakakaala kay Papa at may iba sa kanila, may maliliit na story - 'yung encounter nila kay Mang Gerry. Natutuwa ako."
Mang Gerry's burial ceremony will be held today, February 7 at the Manila Memorial Park Bulacan, their family's hometown.
Regine is set to perform her Valentine Show with Martin Nievera next week at the MOA Arena.
Regine starred in Star Cinema’s “Paano Kita IIbigin” together with Piolo Pascual. Read about it here.
