Today is Charice’s first day on the Japanese leg of her Asia tour. Japan is the third stop of a 5-city Asian Tour, starting out first in Korea, then Philippines, with the primary purpose of the tour being for Charice to promote her new CD in a series of radio and TV appearances. A meet and greet is scheduled in Japan with a contest by Tsutaya Records for the lucky winner to enjoy a private meeting with Charice and a song.

Please check back for more Japan videos as Charice makes the rounds of radio and TV appearances.

Charice receives a standing ovation!

Charice has become comfortable in Japan with her second visit here. She performed in an open air concert for the first time in Japan as the opening act of Beni. Many of those in the audience have not heard of her and yet she received a standing ovation for her last song “Crescent Moon”, with the audience overwhelmed by her immense vocal prowess. Charice, sweating after singing three songs, later said that she wanted to take a shower. She also said that she had fun and that although many don’t know her yet, there were people who were doing the pyramid sign while she sang Pyramid so she was happy. It was a very busy visit to Japan with live appearances and interviews in TV and radio. There will still be more of her to show to the media! For those of you who have not heard of her, we hope you enjoy her awesome singing voice in her album “Charice”.

Charice was born and raised in a poor family and has been joining singing
contests since the age of 7 to support her family.

A video of her singing in one of the contests she joined when she was 12 was uploaded to youtube and her amazing singing has since caught the attention of the world.

Her talent was then noticed by the big time producer of Michael Jackson and Madonna, leading to her American debut.

She has also debuted in Japan. She sang a cover of Ayaka’s song “Mikazuki” live.

So how was your first appearance at Mezamashi Live?

So this was Charice, satisfied (with her apperance at Mezamashi Live.)

She entered the US Billboard chart at number 8, surpassing the record of Mr. Kyu

    Am i the only one to have noticed it when Charice sang the melody of the Doraemo show after she was presented with the stuffed toy? She did it so cute; she was quite lovable when she did it- her hosts were so tickled by it. This is an example of the little things that make Charice so endearing to everyone!

      When American entertainment personalities (singers, etc – even travelers) visit Japan, they tone themselves down a little bit because they want to respect the culture in Japan which calls for restraint and self control ~ the awareness of people around you and sensitivity towards how you act towards them and how they act towards you… how you show respect. I learned that when I traveled to Japan, too. It’s not that she can’t be expressive…it just has to be in a different way. The way she bowed, smiled, all the subtleties are enough. I’m proud of her. Even in that short clip from Star King she was the same way because Koreans also practice the same social interaction practices that the Japanese do. She bowed to the host, etc.

        you are so right marie. i am so glad she learned the basic phrases, not just “arigato” (she said “arigatou gozaimashita” which is the polite way of saying thank you) which shows her respect to her japanese hosts and fans. japan has a very hierarchical society – you always have to be in your “place”. even though she is already bigger (despite being a newcomer) than most japanese stars, she showed great humility and sensitivity, especially in her tv appearances.

        i think it also had to do with the heat – it was amazingly hot that day and to sing in black clothes outside would get to anyone. she even mentioned she wanted to shower after her performance – it was that hot.

        she was also mirroring the audience which was more subdued than say, american or filipino audiences. it had nothing to do with her, japanese audiences are just like that, especially in concerts by foreign artists. i attended a mariah concert here once and even she had to urge the crowd to dance, clap and sing along. it’s just the japanese way of showing respect to the singer (to hear her sing rather than drown her out with cheering).

          Yup, I am sure the Japanese are very pleased with her performance and her manners. They actually get loose a bit in the Sukiri show because they appreciated how she respected them. That’s one awesome thing about being Filipino because we understand the whole respect factor ~ the differences b/w talking to an elder, etc. Exactly! She is mirroring her audience ~ awesome! Show’s how professional she is and how she cares about her fans =D

          The heat can also be a factor too haha…it is Summer lol.

    @CBTORONTO…yes I also read the point of view of Dr.M.Roth, and I agree to him even though I’m not in the field of Medicine. I think w/o VB advice, Charice will not go on that B…x beautifying madness.Actually she feels nervous as what I read…and maybe VB encouraged her for a purpose! In addition, as a COSMETIC DOCTOR she has that PROFESSIONAL ETHIC NOT TO EXPOSE OR TO MAKE IT KNOWN TO THE PUBLIC of what she did to her clients!!! Ayun naging worldwide news tuloy!!! So Charice before you will do something always ask guidance and wisdom to the LORD and HE will not mislead you! Always be at cautious and precaution…people that surrounds you are not all good angels..some of them are bad angels!LABYO..

    Charice had been featured in two widely read Newspapers ( Metro and 24H ) in Toronto, Canada Today, Tuesday, July 20, 2010. The story was all about the Botox thing. According to Metro, Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of New York’s Society of Plastic Surgeons and director of plastic surgery at Mainmonides Medical Center in New York said he wasn’t sure someone so young could benefit from Botox. I hope Charice would be able to read this for her information because this comes from an expert who is very much knowledgeable in this field. Next time please be careful and don’t listen to Belo. Take care and we love you the way you look now. Good luck to your appearance on Glee!!!BTW, You are now big/popular here in Toronto because you have been featured on this two newspapers and I believed your popularity will increase more and gain more fans!!! Thanks!!!

    That radio interview was very entertaining. The live Crescent Moon was “Oohhh”” it’s so good! Was I listening to her CD? And that Beyonce again – she’s killing Beyonce songs! From that short acapella of “If I Were A Boy” she was able to give a goosebump effect and left me asking for more. The Japanese people were surely amazed with her performance afterwards in the concert, no doubt.

    Let’s just hope this Botox issue will soon blow over. My greater concern is going forward. She has a world class publicist in Liz Rosenberg. Why not use her? Why not consult her before making any potentially controversial undertaking? This Botox thing could have been presented the right way. The same way with the appearance fee issue. Why did she not ask Rosenberg for advise on how to handle the issue instead of the bizarre response of being embarrassed and about it being “too much” for “someone just starting” her career? To her credit Charice did refer the issue to Marc in her interview with Karen Davila. She and her Mom should have done that from the outset.

    Charice and her Mom better realize and accept the fact that Charice is now “huge”. Once you make it to Breibart.com and Drudgereport.com (as Charice did today with the Botox story), you are definitely, huge. Both online publications are serious and influential news sources. With 25 to 30 million daily readers, Drudgereport often provide lead stories for newspapers, radio and TV newscasts around the world. She and her mom should accept the fact that Charice is now in the “entertainment big league.” Those insane Pinoy “modesty” and “utang na loob” (beholden) so called “virtues” do not cut it in this league. If she is serious about protecting and promoting her “wholesome image” she and her Mom better start putting to good use Liz’s and Marc’s expertise.

      Amen. I also personally hate this ‘utang na loob’ practice. Most often, it’s used to manipulate other people.

      We may never know but how did Charice end up there with a news crew? Who thought it would be a good idea to have them there? Was she sabotaged?

      This is sad because she was making huge progress. We can just hope now that positive things will come out of this.

      We will never know for sure whether or not her publicist were consulted. Considering the issue happened before her major television exposures of her asia tour, I believe it was a brilliant strategy. Propaganda wise they need something to boost her popularity when asians starts to ask who is she and they wont be reading the whole blog or writeup, only the title hahaha, and that would sell not only CHarice but Oprah, glee even her home country as well, to the Korean, Japanese , Thailand Malaysian masses. It was a success thou, this cosmetology thing can not bring down Charice, personally I would prefer this vanity move rather than a moral issue like sex scandal maybe, haha joke! To the top Charice !

        I have the same opinion on this. The fact the Marc Johnston was in the Philippines when procedure was done and made public.

        But that is not important anymore. Again, what is done is done. Its the past. You cannot do anything about it! If you want this Botox thing to happen, STOP bringing this up. Bringing up this Botox on every forum will only not help Charice! Garbage in, Garbage out!

        Instead, let us celebrate whatever good that Charice has — her Angelic voice. And if you remember this is the same reason that you became a fan. And this is not applicable only to being a fan. This can be applied to our daily lives.

        People, try to see the good things in every situation.

        If you think this is bad publicity, then let’s us keep on supporting Charice and let’s us take this opportunity to show her our love to Charice. Let us give justice why we call ourselves Chasters!

(It would have been nice if they were shown clearly as well.) I greatly appreciate the respect they accorded Charice, a new star. They were very, very nice and star-struck. I’m sure they both are celebrities in their own right. My hats off to them.
