LISTEN: Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid sing Josh Groban’s ‘Thankful’ for 10th wedding anniversary
Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid performed their own version of American musician Josh Groban’s 2007 track “Thankful” to mark their 10th wedding anniversary today.
Alcasid shared their cover on his Instagram page yesterday, Dec. 21, while highlighting the importance of hope amid these trying times.
“This year has been a very difficult year for all of us and we are quite sure that even the giving and receiving of gifts this season does not diminish the sense of despair and loneliness that all of the tragic events have brought to our lives,” he said. “But, as we all always do, we must hold on to HOPE.”
Through their short performance, the couple wishes to remind their fans that “there is still so much to be thankful for” amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Lastly, as my wife and I celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary, we want to share with you God’s goodness in our union with the very gift that he gave us — our love for music,” Alcasid added.
Meanwhile, Velasquez also marked the occasion with an adorable photo of them kissing during a performance together.
