Sophie turns 92

LOOKING radiant like a debutante, Sophie sang lines from “Dahil sa ‘yo”, turning Celina Agton’s rendition of the song into a duet. To our surprise, Sophie Tomambing had a good singing voice. Fresh from her memory are the Kundimans – Mutya ng Pasig, Pakiusap, Hating Gabi, Nasaan Ka Irog and many more. To think that many of the women her age tend to lose much of these memories, it was indeed a surprise that the mother of Gemma Tomambing-Velez could really sing with a beautiful voice.
