    CONGRATULATIONS CHARICE !!! This is only the beginning of the many awards that you will receive throughout your career. I can’t wait to see you receiving an equivalent award here in the US. It won’t be long, just wait and see. Meanwhile, start to prepare some kind of acceptance speeches just pretend it is for some kind of imaginary award. Then you will not be caught empty handed. You tube is the best source of similar shows.

    I like your HAIRDO in this event. You look very pretty and very mature. Just hoping someday I can see you in person here in America. I’m praying all the time for your continued success and may God continue to shower you with many more blessings and successes. .

    It was good, but she didn’t look like she’s enjoying it unlike when she’s in the US.

    Hi Charice and your family,

    I think you should really consider moving permanently to US. Your accessibility in continuously doing projects in US is a big factor for you to really be known there.

    I’m a big fan and would really like for you to make it big there….so please consider this sacrifice for your future. Just think that you are one of the Bagong Bayani ng Pilipinas who has to sacrifice not beeing in your own country to earn big bucks for your family….

    You can always come back once in a while in the Pinas…though not as frequently as you are doing right now……;-)

    All the best dear,

    Hi,Charice and the Mom,

    Hope you reconsider your decision. Your brother can stay and study here too. Charice, if you want to attain your dream of becoming another Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, you have to live and try life here in the states. You must have concerts here, be more visible in the US networks, guest with jay Leno and Sat Night live and fraternize with stars like Cyrus, Jonas brothers, Vanessa and other young stars in your age group.

    Your age is just right at 16 to assimilate and learn a new culture that will enhance your personality. A good example for you would be Lea Salonga who migrated here at the age of 17. Look at her now, a complete lady, won the coveted Tony award, considered by peoples magazine one the 50 prettiest woman in the world and truly exemplifies the embodiment of a true Filipina.

    Actually, you have the potential to be up there with Celine, Mariah,Barbra,Whitney? Make your dreams come true. Take Oprah and Davids advice – they are star makers and they really care for you.

    Remember, your success means a lot to the filipinos, you make them proud. Reconsider.

    Just a fan,

    I agree with you lou. The music was rushed and loud. Charice’ vocals were impeccable, so this could have been a great performance if all the parts were working together. Too bad. Maybe next time. Congratulations to Charice on one of many awards that will come her way.

    By the way, why are there comments about her not moving to the US here?

    Jana – Your comment was nothing short of criticism for not following what you’ve personalized to be Charice & her mother’s decision. I can’t believe you’re guilt ridden response about being very upset and almost refusing “us”(but really you mean YOU) because you’re waiting for her videos…pleazzz. Everyone else has expressed their concern eloquently but your comment was just whining and complaining… Pls remember to choose your words carefully next time. It’s these type of responses that makes me wonder if some people are true fans. After reading your comment, “shame on you!”

    cha my one and only baby….you should grab the opportunity. Best opportunities in our life comes once so grab….forget about the Philippines just for now and when you are totally adjusted or settled… can come back to the Philippines when ever you want. Think about your career…..take care….

    I agree with “k”. Also, when she decides to stay in the US does not mean she’s totally leaving Philippines. She can come back any time she wants when she’s settled.

    But then, I hope, DF or Oprah ask her to enroll in a language school to enhance her communication skills. And I believe she can better practice it if she’s in the US.

    One more, I hope she doesn’t tie herself in any network in the Philippines especially with ABS-CBN. I hope she doesn’t sign an exclusive contract. That way, she is free to guest or promote in any network, be it in GMA or ABS-CBN.

    I love you Charice. Take care of yourself always.
