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 can´t believe it! I´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

“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”
