In a press conference for her upcoming movie “Beauty in a Bottle”, Angeline Quinto said that the “Asia’s Songbird” is indeed her idol but not to the point that she will copy everything about her.

“Sobrang idol ko si Ms. Regine Velasquez pero hindi naman po umabot sa punto na nag-effort akong gayahin siya, hindi po talaga. So kung ano man ang nakikita ko ngayon, siguro sa pagka-idolo ko sa kanya, eh lumalabas ‘yon the way akong kumanta at saka kung paano ako gumalaw sa stage,” she said.

The 24-year-old singer said that she is trying her best not to be compared with Regine Velasquez because even her manager Jonathan Manalo said that she sounds like the singer-actress.

After years of being hailed as the “Star Power” grand winner in 2011, Angline Quinto admitted that she feels tired being compared to her idol and she is hoping that people would accept her as a true singer.

“Ayaw kong tumanda na ‘uh ginagaya naman si Regine Velasquez’ ayaw ko ng ganoon. Nagsasawa ako. Gusto kong makilala as a singer na Angeline Quinto na. Sana po ay unti-unting matanggap ng tao at makita ng tao sa akin ‘yon,” she said.

Angeline Quinto is a big fan of Regine Velasquez since she was a child and she is happy that she is close to the award-winning singer.

Meanwhile, Angeline Quinto is busy promoting her movie “Beauty in a Bottle” which also stars Angelica Panganiban and Assunta de Rossi. The film will be released in theaters nationwide on October 29, 2014.
