Sheryn Regis

Sheryn Regis (born Sheryn Mae Poncardas Regis) is a Filipina pop singer, composer and she has dubbed as Crystal Voice of Asia. Sheryn was a consistent top scorer of Star in a Million, where she eventually ended as runner-up to Erik Santos in January 2004. She is a member of ABS-CBN homegrown talent, Star Magic.


Early Life and Career


Sheryn was born and raised in Carcar, Cebu to Bernardo and Daisy Regis. She is the eldest of three kids, and has two siblings: Elton and Joseph. Regis' mother guided her in singing. At the age of 2, Sheryn was able to hum and sing simple tunes as her mom recalls. Her first and favorite contest piece was Ms. Kuh Ledesma???s ???Dito Ba,??? which Sheryn learned at the age of five. At seven, Sheryn started joining amateur singing contests. Her winnings were used to buy tapes of Shirley Bassey???s hits for her next contest piece. And at the age of eight, Sheryn won her first grand prize by singing Ms. Tillie Moreno???s ???Saan Ako Nagkamali????


Aside from singing, Regis offered voice lessons to children while in high school. During her college years, Sheryn was able to finish her B.S. Secondary Education, with a major in English at Cebu Normal University. It was during these years, too, that she was exposed to theater acting and chorale singing. It gave her a chance to travel abroad, and to perform for Filipino communities in Canada and in the USA. Both Mr. Leo Martinez and Ms. Gina Alajar served as workshop mentors. In 1999, she was awarded as the "Best Interpreter" at the Cebu Pop Music Festival (a songwriting festival), and the original composition that she sang also won the Grand Prize.


Regis worked as a lounge singer at the Cebu Plaza Hotel where she met Earl Echiverri (cousin of Caloocan City mayor Enrico "Recom" Echiverri). In 2002, they exchanged vows and had a daughter nicknamed ???Sweety??? the following year.


In 2003, Regis entered ABS-CBN???s Star in a Million. She was the consistent top finalist and was dubbed the Power Belter, but ended up as the first runner-up and texter???s choice awardee. After this, Regis went back to Cebu, and was later offered a recording contract by ABS-CBN and another recording company. She accepted ABS-CBN???s offer. Sheryn already worked and collaborated with some of the country's respective singers like Regine Velasquez, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Lani Misalucha, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Dulce, Pilita Corales, Jose Mari Chan, Bituin Escalante, Vina Morales and many more.


She has also performed together with fellow singers Sarah Geronimo, Erik Santos, Rachelle Ann Go, Frenchie Dy, Jerome Sala, Kris Lawrence, Jed Madela, Mark Bautista, and Christian Bautista, and has garnered fame in The Philippines, and internationally, as part of the group dubbed "The Champions."


Albums


Come In Out of the Rain

Even just before she released her second single, Come In Out of the Rain was a nationwide radio hits. It stayed for 12 consecutive weeks as number one on Myx daily countdown and she is dubbed as Shinning Diva. Kailan Kaya, a song made by Raul Mitra and Cacai Velasquez was introduced as an official theme song of ABS-CBN's hit fantaserye Marina.


By May 2004, Sheryn Regis officially launched her debut album under Star Records dubbed: Come In Out of the Rain, Sheryn Regis. The album was produced by Jonathan Manahan. Included in the album is Follow Your Dream, composed and written by Mister Vehnee Saturno in which Sheryn used as a piece on Voice of Asia, where she won second place. A song written in Cebuano was also a part of her debut album as a tribute to Cebu's patron saint, Sr. Sto. Ni?ħo.




For barely three months, Come In Out of the Rain attained Gold Record Award and eventually became Platinum.


What I Do Best

In July 2005, Sheryn launched her second album entitled "Sheryn Regis, What I Do Best."


She is the voice behind the song ???Sabihin Mo Sa Akin???, the theme from ABS-CBN???s fantaserye, Kampanerang Kuba which starred Anne Curtis


After the success of her carrier single, she launched her second single by late 2005, Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka. It was chosen as a love theme song of ABS-CBN's remake teleserye, Gulong ng Palad. Aside from this, her love song, Sa Piling Mo was aired as a wedding song on the same show.


By April 2006, she released the last single from her sophomore album, Dahil Nagmamahal and was chosen as a theme song of Bernadette Sembrano's Nagmamahal Kapamilya.


Two songs from this album received recognition. The carrier single, What I do Best won as Best Song Performed by a Female Artist given by iFM. Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka, which is actually the most popular song from this album received a prestigious award. It was named by S Magazine as song of the year.During at that time she was dubbed as Crystal Voice of Asia.


What I do Best received Gold Record Award.


The Modern Jukebox Collection

On October 2006, Sheryn began recording for her third album under Star Records. The album was set to release on November 20, 2006. Her first single off the album was a cover of a Leah Navarro original, Ang Pag-Ibig Kong Ito.


Sheryn's remake of Joey Albert's I Remember the Boy was chosen as Jasmine's Theme Song for ABS-CBN's teleserye featuring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson entitled Sana Maulit Muli. She also sang the theme song of the teleserye, Maria Flordeluna.


She later launched her second official single from the album, a song penned by Ricky Sanchez entitled Ang Lahat Para Sa 'Yo, while her self-composition, Pusong Lito, enjoyed frequent airplay in provincial radio stations and was able to reach the Number 1 spot in the MOR Top Hits of MOR Cebu 97.1 Lupig Sila. And it was chosen as the theme song of ABS-CBN Cebu's cebuanovela entitled Summer Sunshine.


Early 2008, Sheryn released her third and final single from the album, Sayang na Sayang, a cover of the Manilyn Reynes original. By end of February, the music video for the single was shot with her Love Spell co-star and Be Bench finalist, John James Uy, as the leading man.


Starting Over Again

During the release of her third single from her jukebox album, Sheryn started hinting the public of an upcoming fourth album with a tentative June release. Due to the impressive performance of Sheryn's third album, Star Records decided to revert back to the genre of songs similar to those from her first two albums. It was also during the planning stages of her fourth album that Sheryn became part of Star Magic, the talent management arm of her mother station, ABS-CBN.


The album, aptly entitled Starting Over Again, released its first single bearing the same title, which is based on the Natalie Cole version (the song was originally sung by Dionne Warwick with different lyrics), during the final week of May. The album contains seven revivals and three originals. Sheryn, along with her husband, penned an English original entitled My Heart Beats for You. Anabelle Regalado, managing director of Star Records, also contributed a Tagalog original entitled Sana Nandito Ka. Vehnee Saturno, who is also one of the composers on the album with his song Patunayan Mo, was also its producer. This is the first time that one of Sheryn's albums was produced by somebody other than producer Jonathan Manalo.


The carrier of her fourth album was chosen as an official theme song of ABS-CBN's Koreanovela, Three Dads with One Mommy.


Her second single It Must Have Been Love is now airing in different radio stations and reigning also in different countdowns. Always, Where Do Broken Hearts Go and My Heart Beats For You(Sheryn Regis' own composition) are also released but as an unofficial singles. These songs are released due to the request of most of the radio stations in the Philippines.
