Eva and Chona's Story from Regine's "Roots To Riches"

I have this newfound respect for our very own Asia's songbird Regine Velasquez. Have you seen last Sunday's TV special for Chona (her nickname) on GMA-7 "Roots To Riches"? Well, I haven't but thanks to this YouTube user who uploaded the clips, I was able to prove that Regine still looks back to where she started.

One of the most heart-warming moments in the TV special was when Regine told her story about her past competitor in amateur singing contests. Her name is Minerva "Eva" Castillo. They managed to locate her after more than 20 years and she is now living a very poor life in Tondo. What happened next? Find out on the videos below and see their very humble yet touching story. I believe Eva deserves a second chance. Thanks Regine for inspiring us all.
