  1. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be actually one thing that I think I’d by
    no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very wide for me.
    I’m looking forward on your next publish, I will try to get the grasp of it!

    Guys, click the link http://sev.prnewswire.com/music/20090709/NY4393709072009-1.html Are you amazed by the sales records of NOW? This means Cha’s first debut Note to God is destined to be a collection item.

    i agree tony (# 12). i plan to do the same when charice’s first US album comes out. maybe CM could have another project that would collect all “gift CDs” from chasters to distribute to the deserving co-chasters who are temporarily unemployed.it’s good to own an original CD of Charice’s first international album so the gifts would be well-appreciated. where to buy the CDs, US or the Philippines, will have to be decided on the basis of chart impact.

    Most of the singers who are a product of singing contest can sing different songs of different singers . Like Charice, Regine & Sarah before they became professional singers. According to David F Celine D… sang Barbara Streisand songs before she had her own songs. PEACE

    According to this: http://sev.prnewswire.com/music/20090709/NY4393709072009-1.html, all of the Now series went at least platinum with the highest selling 4x platinum and Now 30 which debuted March 30 2009 went platinum, pending certification. Which means, based on sales history of the Now series and the fact that Now 31 went #1 on its debut, its fairly safe to assume that it will at least reach platinum status in no time. And guess what? NTG which is included in Now 31 will at least sell a million times over! In fact, it has already overtaken the sales indicator of Cha’s original NTG (the single) in ITunes! Nice!
