More Than Standing Ovation

inquirer More Than Standing Ovation

Publisher: Philippine Daily Inquirer – Publication Date: 04-01-2008 – By Nestor Torre

We recently caught Filipino Charice Pempengco’s “command” performance on Ellen Degeneres’ self-titled TV show, and we gladly share these notes:

Charice impressed Ellen and the studio audience so much with her show-stopping performance that they gave her a standing ovation. Americans are among the more demonstrative people in the world, but standing ovations don’t happen every day on live TV shows in the States, so Charice’s performance was truly special.

What made it unusual wasn’t only her amazing vocal range–indeed, the US has many (usually black) singers who can hit those high notes with prodigious skill and unerring accuracy. Belting wasn’t the only factor that made listeners’ day when Charice performed on “Ellen”.

We think that what blew their socks off was her unique combination of vocal power and petite youthfulness. That’s a pretty rare mix to find on US TV, so it really was cause for admiration and celebration.

YouTube Turns Filipino Singers Into Stars

Club Singer Gets To Front Rock Band in California While Teen Crooner Wins Standing Ovation on Popular US Talk Show

LITTLE did this teen Filipino singer know that video clips of her singing posted on YouTube would be viewed by 5 million people. And among them would be US celebrity and television host Ellen DeGeneres and Grammy award-winning producer David Foster.

While Charice Pempengco, 15, has wowed audiences in the US, her country mate Mr Arnel Pineda 40, is now the front man for US rock band Journey.

YouTube clips of him performing at a Manila club with his band caught the eye of Journey’s founder and guitarist.

But it has not always been this easy for the two budding stars.Charice thought her music career was doomed when she lost a local singing competition in 2006. She got her ‘cyber break’ of a lifetime on YouTube when a clip of her singing Jennifer Holliday’s And I’m Telling You I am Not Going caught the attention of TV host Ellen DeGeneres and Grammy award winning producer David Foster.

Bianca Ryan’s Camp Reachin’ Out to Certain Charice Fans

Charice fans,
I am a moderator at the Bianca Ryan forum. Speaking for myself and the fans over there, I want to assure you that no fan of Bianca wishes anything but the best for Charice. We have several members who were fans of Charice first and came to our board to act as fans of both girls. They have posted links to her YouTube performances that are still up in the BACK PORCH forum.

To my knowledge, none of our members have ever made unfavorable comments toward Charice on YouTube or any other website. The only anger has been toward certain Charice fans who seem to have lost all sense of civility. Making hateful remarks toward Bianca only damages the credibility of Charice in the eyes of any intelligent person. If you really like Charice and her music, show it in a positive way.

I guarantee you that the mods at our site will delete any snarky comments posted on our board toward either girl, or toward any other performer. This is a big planet and certainly there is room for TWO successful and beloved young singers.

Mr. Bill
Official peacemaker

A Message From FalseVoice

Hello everybody. Well, I guess it’s time for me to speak up. First of all, I want to thank you for all the support that you have given FalseVoice channel. It’s really saddening to know that one of the major channels of Charice got suspended and will never be able to be up again. I want to thank you for the overwhelming response that you gave to my channel that it actually reached over 5 million hits since it started last year.

Now. Let me say these things…

1. Yes, my account is PERMANENTLY disabled. That only means that there will never be another ‘FalseVoice’ again on YouTube. All the videos were deleted and sadly I don’t have back-up files for some of those.

2. One of my videos was complained by ABS-CBN Interactive to be infringing and it was Charice’s ‘Post Ellen Performance Interview’ that I took from TV Patrol. As you know, YouTube has a strict rule regarding copyrights ie. incidents of copyright infringements will result in the deletion of an account and all videos uploaded to that account. That’s why YouTube removed and disabled access to my account.

3. Is this the end ? Of course, its not. This is just the beginning, as some of you would say. I will surely rise. I will continue to upload Charice’s videos that I own ‘rights’ of. I have just made another account (‘FalseVoice2′) and I am on the process of uploading videos. I hope you subscribe. I will launch the channel soon and I hope you will continue to support me as what you had given FalseVoice before.

Thank you very,

FalseVoice would like to express our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to FalseVoice who volunteered his time and resources to take an active role in helping Charice succeed.
