(TRANSLATIONS ADDED) Probe, a public affairs program being aired on ABS-CBN, will feature Charice’s inspiring life story from her humble beginnings to stardom in their year-end special episode. Ms. Cheche Lazaro, head anchor of the Probe, flew straight to L.A. to conduct the interview. Not known to many, the reputable host also admires the international singing sensation.
On the course of the interview, Charice mentioned about the Chasters. Curious as to what the term is, Ms. Lazaro asked her what they are. Charice replied and regarded the Chasters as her friends, a community of her supporters around the globe who often gathers and meet up in a website. The host then asked her how to become one, what site does she needs to go, if there is a need to register, and to tell the Chasters to welcome her as the newest member of the group.
Back in Manila, three Chasters were invited by the Probe Team staff last Wednesday (December 9) to give some insights and to know more about Charice. The lucky ones were disciple, irmsmith, and jianee (chaster’s nick). Each of them were asked to share their most unforgettable experience with Charice and how she is as an idol. Some Chasters who were aware of the interview cheered the three to raise the Chasters flag and make the whole community proud. Watch the video below to have a glimpse of the chasters interview.
