We Chasters all have a story of how Charice has touched our lives. I myself have been touched in so many ways. Please tell us how she touched yours. Charicemania received this testimonial from Jomz that I want to share with you:
I’ve never been a super fan of someone until Charice. Let me share with you how Charice touches my life just by doing what she does best… Sing!
I stumbled across Charice way back her during her “Little Big Star” days. I remember coming home from school during the weekends and my mother would immediately say, I’m just right on time. My mother and I bonded a lot cause of charice just by watching her perform and I’m grateful for that because we’ve never had that kind of relationship before. So when Charice got eliminated, we got so disappointed that we never watched little big star again after that. It’s like why bother now? My mama and I used to say, ‘what??? I mean, that was the best vocals we’ve ever heard. Then the ‘beauty factor’ came in and I was like…’hey, she’ll grow into a beauty someday’. And that time I was also like, ‘come on..It’s easier to do something to our outside appearance than do something with what’s within’. I guess they had never seen what’s within her that time, the amount of talent she has.
But then a friend of mine told us that there will be a wild card on LBS and we we’re like, ok! We’ll watch LBS again, hehehehe. We’re so thrilled that she got back on LBS then and when the finals arrived, when they were announcing the winners, we’re like holding our breaths and said…’noooh.. 3rd place?’ Again we felt disappointed but still she’s the winner for us.
After that, I constantly waited for her appearances on local tv shows, but I guess there’s only a few back then. And then on one faithful event, while I was browsing YouTube, I come across her video of “And I am telling you I’m not going” in korea….and I know this sounds like what everybody felt when they first saw that video…’goosebumps! I’ve felt that too’. From that video, so many surprises have happened to her since then. International TV guestings…’hey that’s more than what I want to happen to her too’. I just want to see her on the local shows and look what I get to see…Ellen, Oprah…’wow! how good things are going for her’.. But it never stopped there. I get to see more surprises from Charice. And everyday I’m beaming with pride and smiles.
I’m actually a graduate student of chemistry and being so means a lot of studying to do, lots of sleepless nights and most of all stress. Believe me, when I feel like I’m gonna burst because of the pressure of my studies, I always find myself listening and watching to charice’s songs and videos. And just listening to her soulful voice calms me. She does make me feel that, I too, have a lot of surprises that are yet to come in my life. Knowing that, I get right back on my feet.
In different ways, I know Charice had touched our lives. I also believe that she will become more of what she is now because there are lots of people who believed in her. I guess that’s what it takes for us to succeed in our lives, to have someone believe in us no matter what.Written by: Jomz Posted by: Max
