oh yeah lea's us album is so good! she even has a nice duet with brad kane?! brad who? and how the song goes again?!..

anyone who sees us... knows whats goin on between us.... it doesnt take a geni-us... to read between the lines...

it should've won a fucking grammy! and lea's voice there is really overpowering ha....

true enough... it doesn't take a geni-us to know that song sucks big time! kahit dito ate sinuka yang kantang yan!

i'd pick billy crawford's trackin anytime! oh billy crawford... he won the star search... released a successful album in europe... soon to conquer america with the new album and a lead role in exorcist prequel... hooked up with mandy moore... maybe he should be the rightful flagbearer... what you think kurimaw?! :) *wink*

Laugh all you want. He's a monster in Europe.
Loved by millions there. He may not be cool with you
but who said you were the center of the universe.

Regine's tally in Asia for her Asian releases is about
3.4 million copies sold. I believe its more closer to 6
Million. Why? Because that's how many copies Coco Lee
sold in Asia. And Sony picked Regine 1st before Coco Lee.
When Sony picks artists that are similar you have to imagine
they'll pick the one who sold more copies. Not sings better.
Because business is business.

Lea sings ok. A matter of personal taste. She sings or
sounds the way she does because she's a stage singer. Like
one of the sisters of one of our music friend. there's
no comparing them anyway. But if you must then prepare to
go around in circles.

Lea albums sold well here. Her U.S. album DID NOT. But it
was close to the the top 200 album charts at one time. I
think it reached 206. Her own father mentioned to one of
the music friends that he wasn't fond of her U.S. album.
I didn't like "I honestly Love You" version. But I love the
duet. It didn't crack the top 40. Sadly.

Lea did an album with Davip Pomeranz. Lea is very busy.
Especially this year.

They are equal, people. They are shoulder to shoulder.
And I love them both. SO KNOCK OFF THE COMPARISONS.
Because you are putting the other artist down rather
than making good ojectional comments. And didn't that
one person say she is only 14 years old? So why is someone
knocking the kid? Sounds sharp for a 14 year old to meh!


And watch your facts. Its posted everywhere what Regine's
tally is. Lea's last album was double-platinum. And I like
her singing Rick Segreto's songs. He was a special friend
for some of our friends. I appreciate that.

By the way, Lea's father likes Regine Velasquez. Very much.
And yes, they are very rich. Nowadays. he father ran one
heck of a big, big corporation in Subic and in Manila. BIG.
And he hangs with some of the big wigs of the country. The
other kind of big wigs. And Lea is reported to have been
paid 30 Million pesos for just her time in Mis Saigon
when it played in Manila. That alone is rich enough.

Stop this comparisons with put downs, music fans. You're
talking about two of our best artists ever. If you don't
like them both like must people should. Then don't act like
you hate the other. Sounds like a personal problem to me.
Thank you for visting our boards.

CHARACTER, people! ThaT's the word.
Regine has alot of it. And apparently so
does Lea. But humbling character isn't just
what you see one do. What the person feels.
Lea is americanize. And still okey. You got
her character wrong. Sorry.

Hey, two of you do not belong here.

Why are you guys here bothering people with
your way of talking. We been through this before.

Behave. Read all you want but stay off the posting.
Its very easy now to delete your mess. And cut off
your computer ID number to bar you all.

This place is for good music fans. Who love good
artists. And that includes both Regine and Lea.

Thank you.
