Sorry second video is out of order….
ON HER FIRST MOVIE IN HOLLYWOOD:
I auditioned, i sang two songs, both Beyonce songs, then they let me read one of the scripts of the Chipmunks. I just read the script. Then they said they would just call me. But, I said, before I leave, I want to show you my hidden talent. I did the three voices of the chipmunks .
I went home to the Philippines after the audition, and then my manager called my mom, telling her that “she got the role.”
“They want you to play yourself, as Charice,” so that when I appear in the movie . . . it isn’t even that long. My scene there is that the Chipmunks will be joining a school singing competition and I am their most difficult opponent.
I can’t believe that this is my first movie and it is really in Hollywood. And I was really glad that, when after the shooting was done, they told me “see you in [the] premiere night.”
Sports? When I was in school? I joined track and field, because I love running. Then . . . well, I didn’t actually join, but I also know how to play badminton. I didn’t let my classmates know because I’m shy about it. I just play with my brother.
ON UPLOADING HER OWN VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE:
(From your performances, what videos have you uploaded?)
Actually I have something new to upload, because I want them (the fans) to be updated on what I am doing. That’s ‘cause they gave me a Flip Video, and that’s what we’re really using.
Yes. Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, that’s what they use, and they (note: I don’t know who, hehe) also gave me one. And so I talk with [my fans], saying “hello, I’m here in my trailer,” and I gave a tour. “This is my room, this is my this and that . . .” Actually I am uploading it soon, but I’m waiting a few days because I want my posted videos to be hits first.
I concentrate more on Youtube because I am really the one maintaining my channel.
Song title: Pa’no kita pasasalamatan (How can I thank you)
Note: I’m not sure…just check it…
