Charice Draws Praise Over Role in ‘Chipmunks’ Film

Charice Draws Praise Over Role in ‘Chipmunks’ Film

Even though she played a small role in Hollywood film “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” Filipino international singing sensation Charice was thrilled that some people have noticed her in the hit family movie.

In the sequel to the cartoon characters’ 2007 worldwide smash, Charice plays herself, the biggest rival of the chipmunks in a singing competition. The 17-year-old songstress sang Alicia Keys’ “No One” in the film distributed by 20th Century Fox.“Very happy po ako na some people are tweeting me na nakita po nila ako sa movie,” the singer told abs-cbnNEWS.com.

“I’m very happy some people are tweeting me that they saw me in the movie”, the singer told abs-cbnNews.com

Charice was also happy over the sequel’s big success. Reuters reported that as of January 3 it ranked No. 3 in the worldwide box office, with $36.6 million sales record, and a 12-day total of $157.3 million.

The film has yet to be screened in the Philippines.

Like any Hollywood star, Charice had to audition to bag the role.

In her previous interview, Charice said the casting crew was impressed by her ability to modulate her voice to mimic that of a chipmunk. Reports also said that the director saw her performance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and was blown away by her voice.

Meanwhile, Charice is now in the United States to prepare for the release of her 2nd international single called “Pyramid,” which is part of her international album.

Charice’s debut album is expected to be launched either February or March of this year. There were reports that the formal launching will happen on Oprah, but Charice declined to confirm the speculations.

    I watched the movie already with my son (5 year old). Its just so cute when Charice appeared and my son noticed Charice. He said ” Mommy, thats Charice!” The movie is funny. I’m sure that will help with Charice upcoming album with no doubt.

    Just got out of the theater showing Alvin and the Chipmunks. Had lots of laughs, was delighted to hear Charice’ name called after a very long wait, was ecstatic to hear her sing, but I still couldn’t believe her part was so short and discontinuous. Yet I have no doubts this would boost her popularity among the young. Way to go, Charice! And, fans, here’s what we can do.

    Teachers, parents, and the young-at-heart: you now have a question to ask every student at school, every kid, grand kid, niece and nephew in the family, and every child in the neighborhood: Did you see Charice in Alvin and the Chipmunks?

    Put on a fake tattoo like what the principal had but on the back of your hand and with Charice in it, or have a small picture in your pocket and, when those small eyes make contact with yours in elevators, escalators, and bus stops, get permission from the adult with them to show it. “You know who these are? (Alvin and the Chipmunks!) Did you like their song and dance at the talent contest? (Yes). How about this girl? (Don’t know her). She sang and lost to the chipmunks. But in real life, she is really a good singer. On the back of this card is a list of her songs. I’ll give this to your mom so you can look them up.”

    I plan to have a stack of this and give one away to every tenth child or teen I meet and talk to. Now, would someone at Charicemania please post a picture of Charice with the chipmunks on her head and shoulders? Perhaps let Alvin lean forward and downward from her head and Charice looking up at him like they’re talking.
