1 WALKER Reborn: Witness the first ever Worship Concert by OPM Stars!



Who is 1 Walker?

About 5 years ago, newly weds Ogie and Regine Alcasid decided to go on a journey. They embarked on a quest to get to know God through a weekly small group led by Bernard Marquez.

Some of their friends — including Liza Martinez, Jaya, Sushi Reyes and Archie Castillo — joined them on their faith walk. Through weekly get-togethers, they read the Word of God and grew in their walk with Christ.

Realizing that these friends love music just as they love God, Regine broached the idea of putting together a band dedicated to playing praise and worship music. Everyone was on board.

Eventually, more singers and musicians hopped on with the same mission — Marnie Jereza, Manolo Tanquilut, Eugene Cailao, Zebedee Zuniga, Criss Beunviaje, Jem Florendo, Soc Mina, Michael Alba, JunJun Regalado and Nikko Rivera. Thus, “1 Walker” was born.

Why 1 Walker? It is the address of where this journey began. The Bible verse “For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV)” also plays an important role in the band’s existence.
