Charice Photo Shoot for her Japan CD Jacket Cover

Charice Sharisu NHK Tokyo Kawaii TV July 18, 2010

Video uploaded by SharisuCharice


SHARISU (Charice’s Japanese name) arrives at the studios…

“Ohayou Gozaimasu!” – Good morning!!

Narrator: Last May, Tokyo Kawaii TV caught up with Charice who was in Japan for the first time for the production of her debut CD’s jacket. To capture the hearts of the Japanese youth, the Who’s Who of stylists, artists and producers were on hand for the production of her CD’s jacket.

First up, make-up. The one in charge is super talented make-up artist Tomoko Okada (0:40) who has been responsible for the make-up in fashion shows of 20 plus fashion brands in New York and Tokyo.

Make-up Artist Tomoko: (English) I wanna try to use a more fresh style because in your country I saw you on TV and your CD jacket look so really mature… we’ll try really fresh and Tokyo girl style. (in Japanese) I’d like to line her eyes like a cat’s, drawing the line going up while pulling her eyelid up and drawing the tip of the line very thinly. (English) I’m gonna use just Japanese language so you just smiling and singing ok?

Narrator: Now the lips.

Make-up Artist Tomoko: I’m thinking of just going with lip balm.

Narrator: Ms. Okada is using a technique of suppressing shine while emphasizing color.

Make-up Artist Tomoko: (1:45) You know this is really popular for guys, this make-up in Tokyo…we call this “mote”. (Note: “Mote” comes from the word “moteru” which means to be popular with the opposite gender.)

Narrator: The stylist in charge is Keiko Hitsotsuyama (2:05), who has worked with very famous magazines abroad. She has chosen hard and edgy items like a black leather jacket, black short boots and a daring (feminine) mini one-piece dress which typifies the popular look now in Tokyo which mixes sweetness and edginess.

Stylist Keiko: (2:25) She’s already a very cute girl so instead of styling her in a cute, frilly way, styling her in a cool, simple way will bring out what’s good about her. I wanted to bring out her strength as an artist and the power of her singing from the feet up (hence the hard, edgy boots). But I also wanted to show her femininity so I wanted to have some of her skin showing (hence the mini).

Narrator: The one in charge of the CD jacket overall is art director Shigeru Suzuki (3:02). He has been singled out as the one responsible for the Japanese PR of street fashion brands.

Art Director Suzuki: (3:12) She’s from the Philippines so she’s Asian right? And we Japanese are also Asian. We want her image as a singer here to be almost Japanese, cool, someone we (Japanese) can relate to.

Narrator: After 2 weeks, a sample of her CD jacket was finished. Charice is shown on the CD case in head to toe Tokyo street fashion. On the left is the American version of her CD jacket. Her look here emphasizes her adult, glamorous side while her Japanese stylists mixed “cool” and “cute”, bringing forth the “Tokyo style”. An email from Charice herself arrived after she saw her sample CD jacket.

Art Director Suzuki: (4:15) Charice sent an email to the stylist and it seems that Charice uploaded the CD jacket’s picture to her blog and it seems to be very popular with her fans with them saying it’s so much better than her American CD’s jacket. When I heard that, it felt great and I was so happy.

Narrator: Asia’s Cinderella girl, Charice! Will she be a breakout star in Japan too?

Charice on Japanese TV

Video Uploaded by Jemmilyn

Translations from Video Comments: Reporters said that it is the first time that an Asian singer was ranked in top 10 at billboard. Among all Asian singers, album titled “Let’s Walk with Your Face Up” by Kyu Sakamoto was ranked up to 14th, and this time Charice became superior to him. And that her height is no more than about 5ft, but she looks full of energy. Then they referred to her backgrounds. A turning point when she got very popular was when her video was uploaded on Youtube. Her ability as a singer was well acknowledged there and its access exceeded up to 150,000,000 times. And she was cast at a television programme in the United States. There she was paid attention by David Foster. He offered her as her producer for his free will, then huge producers such as Michael Jackson & Celine Dion. And they concluded with announcement that her debut album “Charice” will be on sale on July the 7th in Japan. – Fan_of_Charice

Just a little correction, they mentioned MJ and Celine Dion as two of the big stars in which David Foster produced albums with. Additional info: towards the end of the video, the guy on the right was informed by the director that the current video playing is Charice’s English rendition of Ayaka’s 三日月. He paused and said “Uso?!” (Really, you’re kidding). Then relayed the info to the other 2 anchors – From Ninkichan


Charice on “Space Shower TV” Japan

Translations from the Video:

Space Shower TV Highly Recommends is bringing you a featured interview. Her debut album is first for an Asian to make it on Billboard Top 10 this week. 18 years old and from the Philippines, R&B singer, this is Charice’s interview.

Is she contented because it´s her first time in Japan?

She was discovered by none other than producer David Foster. How did she feel that time?

David Foster discovered this voice, first time to be heard in Japan, here watch the rehearsal.

Lastly, a message from Charice to her Japanese fans…

    If the comments I read that she got a BOTOX, I think it’s not yet time for her to do this kind of beautifying madness..she’s still so YOUNG!!!Don’t always go with the advice of Belo, because she wants to make money from you! Stay as you are Charice, and you’re pretty!!!…Be content of your physical appearance…GOD created us to be like HIM because HE loves us…and don’t make any renovation or refurbish your physical appearance…repentance always at the last!!!

      i am sure no botox was used on her. botox is used when you augment sags or wrinkles but nor when you have fat removed. Gigi Conejero stated that a procedure to have her jawline less prominent was made. Fat removal maybe but not botox application

    those Japanese photographs are great, enhancing her natural beauty while adding that subtle Japanese touch to connect with the audience, and the black-and-white theme lending it an air of sophistication, to reflect how far she has gone in the past years.

    for me, her signature hat adds a sense of mystery, hinting that there is more, much more to her than meets the eye, kept under cover of her innocuous appearance, with nary a trace of the rich motherlode of world-beating talent that lies just beneath the surface. Might as well, since no photograph can do justice to her out-of-this-world talent, which is best experienced in a live performance.

      On my way there in a couple of days, arriving the day after Charice is out of Japan. Too bad, but I won’t have time to look for her there anyway. But at least, I can buy her Japanese record!

      Hope you’re well!

      All the best,

    On the day Charice’s album was released here in Japan, off I went to several record shops but her album’s gone already at 12 noon! Not giving up, I went to Kinukuniya and luckily they had 2 albums left, so I bought them all! I was so happy, eager to get back to my car and played her album at full blast with open windows! ..People turning around probably thinking ” What a crazy ‘gaijin’ (foreigner)” hahahaha ! I love everything in it! I’ve been promoting it to all my students and friends, young and old alike. :-) To the top, Baby!!

    I’m having a fantastic day here in Taiwan. This is why…..

    I was buying some fresh veggies and meat at the traditional market here in Taipei when I realized I didn’t have enough cash with me. So off I went to a convenience store to withdraw some cash. When I got in the store, I heard Charice belting the song Pyramid. So I waited for the song to finish just to make sure which radio station was playing it. I was even happier when it was a local Taiwanese radio station not ICRT (the one and only Enlgish radio station here in Taiwan). The DJ even told the story about Charice’s past and how she worked hard to get to the top. This means more and more local Taiwanese people are listening to Charice’s song. To the top baby!!!

    I just want to share this with you cause it really made my day!

    Love you Charice!!!

      I have a somewhat similar story. :)

      I was in Orchard Rd here in Singapore which is a shopping district. Along the streets, you would see various acts, from dancers to acrobats to drum groups etc etc. Tents are also put up in several spots and these are where events are held.

      I just got out of a mall, stuck in my earphones and played “Charice” in shuffle and repeat. I then heard “in this song” playing in the background. I got confused for a second, I thought I was hearing my cd. Then I turned to a tent nearby where an event was being held and saw 2 young Singaporeans girls singing “in this song” with all their might. I ran towards the tent. It was an event for the youth with several mentions of the upcoming Youth Olympics here. I stayed until the event was over, it really made my day.

      “in this song” is not even a released single and yet it has caught on with the youth. Really, really proud of my girl Charice!:)

        singing “with all their might” – Charice makes it look so easy, and all her songs are deceptively difficult. “In This Song” also seems like a simple song, but people connect with it at a deeper level.

        this little girl is a real trooper though (even her name sounds like someone we know):
