    I'm goona rephrase something. "has been and still is a fan of Regine" not was. He was even shocked when he saw her as what the article said. Please support David's new mini-series "Nandito Ako" to be aired on TV5 on Feb. 20. He is a great singer/songwriter/author/and now, ACTOR. :)

    Both artist respects David and same as with David. An article said that David was a fan of Regine way before he joined American Idol because he discovered her on youtube. Cool people! <3

    Did Regine and David record together? If so, I'm sure it would be beautiful. Hope MYX gets to premiere the song.
