In these times of the Web, you can rise up from rags to riches from being a YouTube hit performer to a Pop Star. That’s how the story has been written for 18-year-old Filipina, Charice who came from a humble background.

I was 12 at the time when I joined Purchase lady era 100mg this contest in the Philippines, it was on television, something like American Idol. I made it to the finals but I ended up only in third place. After a couple of months, someone posted the video of my appearance on YouTube. By the way, he’s my friend now who posted my video, and it got a million hits.

But the success on the video platform was not all. Charice was invited to casting shows worldwide and finally landed in a top American TV show, Oprah Winfrey. That was the breakthrough that Charice needed in the U.S.A. Now the 18-year-old has her first album produced by the 15-time Grammy winner David Foster where it landed in the Top Ten on the U.S Charts.

It’s really amazing, seeing all the teenagers. All the people know my Pyramid Song and they sing along with me. That was one of my dreams that people will sing with me and this time it is also my own hit. Before that, the people also sang but those were not my songs. And now it’s my song and they were singing with me. It feels so great.

But still, despite the sudden success, the 18-year-old keeps her feet on the ground and reveals her Plan B.

Of course I wanna live like a normal life. We do have plans. We plan to open a business in the Philippines. And of course I will finish my studies. And if, if my career really runs well… then let’s just see.

Whether Charice could continue to dream and live the dreams of a pop star also depends on whether the fans will be excited about her first album like they did on her cover versions of Whitney Houston and others.

Article text:
Aside from the videos on YouTube, the guest appearances on talk show queen Oprah WinfreyA?s show have helped Charice. Despite her success, the 18-year-old remains humble. If her music career doesn’t work out, she already has a ‘Plan B’ in her pocket.

      I agree Charice voice and performance is addicting. Let this be a warn to those who are busy people, if you are so busy and need to meet certain deadlines, then don’t watch Charice videos on YouTube. But if you are a person that thirst for joy, excitement, mystery , surprise, and more importantly to feel love, then don’t waste your time, get up and type “Charice” on YouTube. Your taste bud for music will definitely change ;-) And you will be embrace with love once again and feel the touch of an Angel ;-) Take care all.

    Having an education is helpful for Charice especially as she becomes a global superstar. I am glad she is not discounting her education. Charice has a good head in addition to all her other attributes. She is worthy of the adulation and adoration of her fans. Yes and I hope all the young ones out there are learning from her. DREAM BIG AND WORK TOWARDS IT. For us young once, we can still learn too :)

    Have you seen this? I was watching Wowowee this afternoon when I saw this girl (Reds) singing Charice’s Pyramid. During the earlier interview, she said that her singing idol is: Charice. This goes to show that our young people look up to Cha and I hope this will be true around the world. She did very well.

    I have a strong feeling Charice will follow Oprah’s footstep. She
    will become so BIG globally not only in music, she’ll finish her studies, become an entertainment lawyer, open up a business (maybe
    a chain of McDonald type restaurant), have a talk show like Oprah, and become a Billionaire in the process. And she’ll be known as the BIG “C”. With Oprah as Charice adviser and a big influence in everything she does, Charice might inherit part of “OWN” Network.
    And then I woke up………to be continued until my next dream.

    I like to cover all my basis just in case, but for Charice, forget Plan B. Unless for health reasons, Plan A should be in full force and effect until, hmmm Tina Turner is 70 something so applying that formula – ok Plan B in 50 or so years.

    Quoting a Tina song “You’re simply the best, better than all the rest”. Continued success, Charice.
