Every time Charice sings, it’s like angels have touched down on stage. When every note is sculpted so perfectly, it takes your breath away, you know a superstar is in your midst. Today was no exception when Charice and David Foster took to the airwaves on Fuji TV networks’ morning TV program “Tokudane” to promote tonight’s Tokyo concert. With them was famed singer, Peter Cetera.
Pop music is a hot ticket in Japan. Though this country has less than half the population of the United States, it ranks second only to America in worldwide pop sales. The commotion in Tokyo is building to a frenzy. It might just set off an earthquake!
YouTube is carrying this morning’s program. What follows is a rough translation:
HOST: The Philippines’ produced songbird Charice, she will sing for us today. Please come over Charice.
HOSTESS: …she’s cute!
HOST: We also introduced Charice in our program. [to Charice:] How did you feel the first time you met him? [David Foster]
CHARICE: David is not only a great producer-songwriter, but he’s a real person. That’s why I understand he’s very successful.
… and then Charice sings “In this Song” with David on accompanying on the piano.
HOST: Amazing! Wow, Amazing! ….Stunning!
HOSTESS: I got goosebump.
DAVID FOSTER: That voice! You know, I think that Charice is making all of Asia proud all over the world. She is truly a superstar all over the world.
HOST: “Sukiyaki” (song title) was a hit 57 years ago and we couldn’t believe that we now have an Asian singer who actually has an album made it to Top 10, and that was a David produced album.
HOSTESS: It’s like the studio will shake.
HOST: Charice please come join us here.
HOST: It’s great. I still can’t believe David is in the studio. But this is real, isn’t it? David Foster will have a live show tomorrow and the following day at Tokyo International Forum Hall A. It is a two day show.
HOST: It was 16 years ago when you had a show in Japan, this 2 days show is very special.
DAVID FOSTER: It’s such a great pleasure to know that you are such a music fan and that you appreciate what we do. And also I wanted to say “hi” to Mr. Amatatsu. Is he out there?
Well, there you go. And you can probably guess where I want to be tonight. Anyone have a spare plane ticket?
