Charice: No. 4 on “21 under 21″ Billboard Feature

Music’s Hottest Minors Under 21 – They’re young, they’re on a white-hot winning streak, and most importantly, they’re just getting started: These are Billboard.com’s “21 Under 21,” selected not only for their tender age but also for their potential to rule the pop culture zeitgeist over the next 12 months.

Whether it’s a country star whose every song lyric demands hours of analysis (Is she singing about Joe, Taylor or Kanye?!), a beloved breakout character on TV’s hottest high school musical, or a newcomer who landed a record deal on the strength of one Lady Gaga cover, expect them all to to keep us watching — and listening — in the year to come. On to the countdown of our picks!

Charice: No. 4 on Billboard’s List of “21 under 21: Music’s Hottest Minors”

No. 1 Taylor Swift
No. 2 Justin Bieber
No. 3 Selena Gomez

No. 4 Charice

Birthdate: May 10, 1992 (age 18)

Why She’s Hot: Oprah and “Glee”: they’re two of TV’s most powerful zeitgeist-definers, and both have fallen head over heels for Charice Pempengco. Credit the Queen of All Media for plucking the Filipina sensation from obscurity two years ago and introducing her to Celine Dion. The hype finally paid off this spring, when Charice debuted in the Billboard 200 top 10 with her first U.S. album. But its Fox’s high school musical hit, on which she now plays a foreign exchange student with killer pipes to match Rachel Berry’s, where Charice will show millions of Gleeks that she can out-sing the best of them.

    I have to admit , am very bias for Charice.

    The three good artist ahead of Charice in the polls seem to sing very similar tunes. In fact, after searching the Top Ten , my conclusions seem to solidify. No offence meant.

    Lea Salonga of Broadway and Westend is correct. They all fall into a mold.

    Longevity belongs to Charice . Her beautiful songs are ballads and shall stand multiple test of time.

    wow! i remember watching the annual billboard 21 under 21 in college, they Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Justin T and Rihanna. And now we have Charice! Who would have thought that a Filipina will get in that list. I’m so proud of her, so proud that I followed her career from her LBS days. Keep it up!

    Billboard always has something for Charice, wow! Being at #4, overtaking the more famous teen stars in the US is another great achievement of Charice right after Glee. The buzz on her tremendously good performance on the premier of Glee just never fades. The previous episode was just her first appearance and 9 more to go according to some spill and each episode that she’s in will definitely bring her to another level of poularity.

    Is this Article written before First Episode of Glee? I believe she could have been at least on 3rd spot if this was written after..

    Finally … I am starting to see diversity. Asian teens all over the world now have someone they can truly relate to and give aspiration to the talented Asians who may have thought that they can’t make it in the US entertainment industry. One requirement though… they need to be as good if not better than Charice (if that is possible)and must possess the IT factor. It is her mad and real talent that got her noticed when, for others, they just need to be good enough to be auto-tuned.

    i really love charicemania…i always check this website to see if there’s a new vid or news about Charice..hehe…..i hope you can also vsiit charicemusic..:) macky from K.S.A

    It’s super exciting to see the rest of the world discover what we have known for some time — Charice is one-of-a-kind, not only an incomparable singer but a wonderful person. Just three years ago, Charice was a virtual unknown outside the Philippines, the Star King video had yet to go viral on You Tube, and she had seriously considered giving up singing. How fortunate we are that she didn’t do so.

  24. Hotwind says:

    To be in the top 5 of BillBoard’s pick as the most likely teen rulers of the pop world is surreal. Just 2 years back, she won’t even feature in the entire list, just shows how fast her turbo-charged career has progressed. Two years from now, who knows where she’ll be?

  25. niel says:

    that was really great… i mean miley cyrus is on 10 and greyson chance down there… cool! really!

  26. OnlyYouCha says:

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! WOW!! BILLBOARD!!!MORE BLESSINGS TO COME AND STAY HUMBLE. SO PROUD TO BE PINOY!

  27. avian08 says:

    I understand this rating was taken before her performance in Glee. Maybe No. 3 is in order,not 4, my opinion. At any rate, Congrats Charice – at the top baby!

    Charice believes in the power of education in uplifting the plight of the poor so she sponsored a good number of children to help in their education thru World Vision Foundation. She is also active in helping Operations Smiles.

  29. gnodeanim says:

    the charice virus is spreading in the office where i am working in here in Qatar. i introduced charice first to a lady next to my working station. she watched her in youtube. the next day, she came in telling me how impressed she was with her vocal range. today, she is telling me aside from viewing her performances in youtube, she is updating herself with everything there is written about our beloved Cha.
    I am truly happy that our Charice is engaging herself in humanitarian works. I hope this act will also become viral among all the chasters, that is, becoming themselves an instrument in uplifting the plight of the underprivileged, by extending ourselves for the betterment of humanity. I may now sound corny, but we simply cant sit back and watch them suffer. We have something to share to humanity.

    Charice, you have not only shared your music, you have also shared yourself. Mommy Racqz, thank you for raising your children wonderfully well, the world now is benefitting from your act of motherhood.

      hahaha!!! you’r not alone gnodeanim… i too here in industrial area (in doha, qatar) have been my co-workers’ everyday source since some of them were staying just near our working site and have no internet source… they are always asking me if there are new video’s from our princess and if there’s any, i’m always proving it to them and i never failed to impress them everytime they got finished watching it… it’s really an amazing feeling to see their happy faces and jaw dropped right after… :)

        I am so glad I followed Charice since LBS days. The abundancy of videos is overwhelming for a new fans. Sitting in front of monitor for a length of time causes some discomfort (in my case).

      It is not corny, Gnodeanim. We are steward of God’s blessings so it is our responsibility to share.
