“We had witnessed her as “Sunshine Corazon”, dressed very casually, so soft-spoken, somewhat still shy, being so nice and respectful to her adoring, much older fans! Yet when she appeared on stage with Ne-Yo, she had undergone a transformation into Charice, the most beautiful girl in the world, with a FIERCE voice and attitude which exuded confidence and strength; same girl, yet two very different personas.”
With a description as passionate and as detailed as the one above, it’s impossible to not notice the devotion of Chasters have for their idol. It’s no mystery that so many people consider themselves touched or amazed in some way by Charice’s voice and singing. Just by Charice’s recent performance in the Hitman Returns: David Foster and Friends concert last Friday in Las Vegas, it can be said that she is now a full-grown artist, technically, creatively, and physically.
As we hear Charice belt out the two Celine Dion classics, “All By Myself” and “To Love You More” – you’ll feel the difference from the way she controls her voice that she has indeed improved vocally from her days as a young child competing in small-town competitions. In the concert, even when David Foster missed some notes on the piano at the end of a song, Charice still nailed the final high note, which is incredibly hard to do. And as LAfan said in his article here, “Celine Dion had told Foster” that “All by Myself” is a “ridiculously difficult song to sing.” But Charice still sang it incredibly.
On Charice’s performance with Ne-yo, we can see her letting loose and doing something different. Instead of the usual Celine and Whitney songs, we now see her grooving and singing RnB songs. It’s apparent that Charice’s creative taste in music has indeed grown. From the fast beat of her hit single “Pyramid”, to her in-the-works dance song with Jim Beanz, it’s really good to see Charice expanding her repertoire. As an artist, it’s never a mistake to have a wide creative range of music that you can sing and appreciate at the same time.
Just as the quote above describes Charice as the most beautiful girl in the world, I’m sure everyone will agree that she has come a long way from the young girl dresses she wore in Little Big Star and the cute tween outfit with pigtails look she had in Star King. Now, Charice has wavy, big hair, fit for a young diva. And as everyone saw in the Hitman Returns concert, she was wearing a beautiful black top with a shiny, black miniskirt and black high-heels to match. Her physical beauty might just be from all the inner goodness she’s feeling which is manifested on the outside.
Though Charice’s performance is not as fast as that of the famed phone booth transformation of Clark Kent to Superman, it is still surely equal in wonder. Don’t you agree?
