Remember Shanice?

8 years ago Shanice Wilson was anointed a teen angel when her single 'I Love Your Smile'
hit no.1 on Billboard's R & B chart. But the vocalist's 1994 followup album,
21 Ways to Grow, proved disappointingly earthbound. Now 25, Shanice,
who has appeared in Broadway's Les Miserables and dueted with Jon Secada
on the Pocahantas soundtrack, is soaring once again. Her single 'When I Close My Eyes'
recently scored the biggest one-week jump in the History of Billboard hot 100 chart.

I n t e r v i e w:

Was it a trill to break Billboard's record?
I was screaming and jumping up and down. I still can't believe it!

Have you changed alot since you were an 18 year old wonder?
I'm working alot harder now. When I was younger,
all I wanted to do was sing.
Now I'm more involve on the business end.

Has romance bloomed wuith success?
No, I'm by myself. I'm so busy,
If I did have a boyfriend he would leave me
because i'm never there. And I don't want to settle.
I'm just waiting for the right man to come along.

2net, a member of the Regine Internet mailing list was there to watch
as well as another list member. One of the few lucky ones to make it in.
There were no more tickets a few hours before the showing. The theaters
were jampacked. The stairs at the balcony weren't seen anymore
since people were sitting on them.

2net said:

Regine looked pretty and sexy. She was wearing a
black dress with plunging neckline. She and Aga were sitting side by side
with Mang Gerry on the other side of Aga and Kuh Ledesma on the other side
of Regine. There were other celebrities who came - Dina Bonnevie, Ricky
Lee and Raymart Santiago.

The cast went to Benihana after the showing. It was Viva's treat
for them.

The ones who stood out in this movie were Gloria Romero,
Rufa Mae Quinto and of course, Regine.  Those 3 were hilarious.

'Special Thanks' to 2net for the on the spot reporting. We may yet see her someday with her own little corner of the Philippine Star newspaper or Daily Inquirer.

Also on the June 25 bill is an all-star band comprising singer Trevor Rabin, drummer Stewart Copeland, guitarist Eric Johnson and bassist Armand Sabal-Lecco. Violinist Pip Clarke and classical guitarist Manuel Barrueco will also appear.

The Fab 4, a Beatles tribute band, will perform in the Bowl's plaza before the concert.
