In a short interview, Charice briefly said something about herself and the country where she came from.
“I came from the Philippines and I’m 16 now. I started to sing when I was 4 and then I started to join singing contests when I was 7. Then Mr. David Foster (pointing to Mr. Foster) in YouTube he recommended me in Oprah and then Oprah recommended me to him, that’s why I’m here,” Charice said.
The young diva was accompanied by her mother Raquel Pempengco and David Foster.
Present during the event were celebrities who applauded Charice’ performance- Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, Nicole Ritchie and Quincy Jones.
