Charice on Voice of America May 21,2010 Friday, 11 AM ET

Voice of America host Larry London saw Charice on The Oprah Show and says “he just had to have her” on his show. He welcomes Charice into the studio as “a true international star, a young lady who is known not only in Italy, the Netherlands, the Philippines, but she is quickly getting known here in the United States for her music, her voice, her beautiful smile…”

Charice doesn’t disappoint as she gives a superb interview and performance of “In This Song” which, if you didn’t see it yourself, would swear that it is the studio recording. But really, chasters, we aren’t surprised now are we?

She gives her all in the performance, not ten feet away from Larry, which prompts him to say:

Wow! Wow! I have goosebumps! I canA?t believe it! IA?m speechless! For the first time in my career. That was awesome! That was amazing! Amazing!!

… to be 18 and sing with such emotion, it’s amazing! … unbelievable

(click each part below for video)

“One of the things that makes you so special is that, not only your tremendous talent, but the fact that your background has brought you to superstardom and you are still grounded. You appreciate things. Because the Philippines is not one of the wealthiest countries, it’s a difficult place to grow up. As you mentioned earlier, people make a lot of sacrifices for their families. So to achieve the success that you have now and to see you still remain so humble and so grounded, is refreshing. It’s wonderful. You don’t see that often.”

Listen to audio here >>> complete 30-minute audio interview as Charice performs Pyramid, announces the DFF Tour in Asia (~ October 2010). And Larry London invites Charice to visit again, saying “we definitely want to have you on again.”

Be sure to listen after P.Y.T. (Michael Jackson’s Pretty Young Thing) as Larry gushes some more about Charice:

“truly, truly a gifted child, and what a pleasure to talk to… She sang live and, whew, sounds like a record they had to produce and work and do 20 takes with… but this is a youngster who, in one take, sounded like.. she’s as gifted as any pro out there… which is why obviously Celine Dion invited her on stage with her… WOW, great talent…
thank you Charice”

    I have to admit, this was by far the BEST interview on my show all year. Charice is a refreshing addition to the sounds of today. I cant wait until she comes back on the show! Salamat Po to all the people who made her visit possible.

    This is Charice’s best “english” speaking interview to date. No fumbling for the right words to express herself and in parts extremely articulate. Some of this, I believe, is attributable to the interviewer, he is good, and didn’t throw extremely complicated questions at her that she would have difficulty understanding. Bravo! Charice!

      Yup. London did a good job with the interview making it sound like they’re just having a private chat.

      I might even check his program out now. Never heard of him before.

    Is really AMAZING everytime you sing. Anytime of the day or night when people ask you to sing, you always sounds the same. you are so beautiful and have a good heart. The things you did for the unfortunate children in the Philippines, that’s a great achievement. If I am still in the Philippines I will probably one of those kids, cause when I was growing up we don’t have anything, My wish was to see and meet my IDOL VILMA SANTOS but it never happened. I am happy now because my dream to see and meet my favorite singer CHARICE that is you happened last year in VEGAS and LOS ANGELES GIBSON AMPHITHEATER. Thank you so much Charice. Continue you good work.

    You are marvelous and I second Arvee’s remark that there is an incremental factor that makes this performance of the song your best, only to be topped by the next performance.

    On the Koreans calling you “Pempengco,” they knew it was your family name. They call each other with the family name until there’s a level of intimacy that allows for the given name. Friends often use the two names interchangeably. The Japanese do the same.

    no matter the great reputation that already precedes her, nothing seems able to prepare anyone for the impact of a live performance, and in this case, being within 10 feet of her, Larry was visibly affected, and could not shake it off for some time.

    this time though, I can even sense some incremental improvement in the solidity, mellowness and control of her voice.

    and anyone who experiences a live performance will not only become a believer, but more importantly, an active supporter and promoter of her.

    Is it live or is it memorex? This was a commercial long time ago comparing memorex tapes against live performance. Best interview
    so far for Charice. She’s very spontaneous and have smart answers to Larry London’s questions. Love Charice mimicking Alvin and the chipmunks. Once she becomes more fluent in English and becomes more comfortable in interview session, she’ll be a total package performer
    ready to take the world.

    I really thought that Larry was just playing the album of Cha “In this song,” but then it cannot be denied that Charice sings best when live and now the videos are here…..showing the proof…
    In this song performance of Cha is the best among the best renditions she did on this particular song…Loved it so much…Good luck and enjoy your brief Philippines’ stay. Be safe.

    Voice of America DJ Larry London, interview promo of Charice said this: “I’ve never been moved to feel this way before and I’ve had a lot of guests and a lot of performances, so when you hear this girl sing, if you don’t feel the same, you must be dead…” here’s the download link, forward from 21:42 to 22:44 to hear it yourself.

    Of all the interviews Charice has done, this one is by far and away her best. Her rendition of “In This Song” was superb. I ran out of adjectives to describe Charice years ago. I just wish I could express my admiration for her talent, personality, and humility.

    I still marvel at her all the way back to the MMK documentary of her life. I am convinced Charice can go as far as she wants to go.

    Whew! What’s that? When I listened to it live earlier I thought Larry was playing her album. Her singing live was that great! I would have doubted it’s live if not for the twists she did in her songs. OMG! And Charice is really fast improving in her conversation skill. Great interview by Larry. Kudos to both of them! Go visit Larry’s Facebook site and show some love.

    Charice looks so mature and well composed during this interview. Just 3 years ago at Ellen, she had to think in tagalog, then translate to english, then say out what she wants to say. Now, she speaks english fluently. She looks like a a girl next door, but very captivating and awe inspiring to watch and listen. She had me at, “And I am Telling You” years ago. And here I am still.

    Yes! Nothing is going to stop Charice now from realizing her dream of becoming a famous singer/entertainer. And way beyond her original idea of geographical reference. It was probably just as famous or popular as Sarah G., Regine V. and Sharon C., and limited to the Pinoys, counting those aware of them outside the Philippines. Now, for Charice, her consumer awareness demographics puts no limit to geographic, nationality, socio-economic circumstance, gender or age. Fantastic the way the Almighty works His plans. I feel sorry for those who hastily and prematurely judged Charice on the basis of what they perceived to be her short comings without considering the total package. They will surely eat their words now.(maybe a lot of them have already been doing so) And she’s only just begun.

      That is where she gets her strenght, power and ability. The rejection she encountered from our beloved country citizens.

      Just watch her when she sing, she is on the different planet and she slowly comes down to earth with a cute smile after she sings.

      Awesome !!!
