19 October 2010 – The Oprah Show showcased personalities that were dubbed by the world as “The Next Big Thing.” Susan Boyle, Jackie Evancho and Debby Boone all delivered amazing performances and did candid interviews with Oprah.
Other than the live appearances of the three, short video features of other next-big-things were shown – and one of these featured Charice. This is actually Charice’s ninth time to be featured in The Oprah Show in just two years. Though this count includes re-runs, it’s a pretty big number. Charice is indeed very lucky to have Oprah as her godmother.
The short video contained clips of Charice’s life in the Philippines before making it big. Oprah’s voiceover also tells of her first appearance in The Oprah Show and her mind-blowing performance that gained a standing ovation from Oprah and the audience. Charice’s recent achievements, like her Glee stint, duets with Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion, and her debut album reaching the top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart, were also highlighted.

Charice’s story was in good company that day. Susan Boyle, who was the runner-up in Britain’s Got Talent Series 3, broke 3 Guinness World Records for her album sales. She’s already a world superstar who first surprised people with her amazing voice that contradicted negative first-impressions due to her frumpy appearance. Debbie Boone, if you remember, was the artist who had the 1970s hit, “You Light Up My Life.” She is now 51 years old, but after 30 years, her record for the longest time at number one by a first-time primary female artist, still stands. Jackie Evancho is known as the youngest opera singer in the whole world. She gained popularity and critical acclaim when she auditioned for America’s Got Talent Season 5. She also performed at last Saturday’s David Foster and Friends concert, which Charice was also a part of.
Hopefully, more Charice appearances on Oprah are in store. Recently, a contest was posted in Oprah.com that asked Charice’s fans to send in their reason why they are her biggest fans. The prize was a chance to be part of the audience in an Oprah episode. Read “Looking for Charice´s Biggest Fans!” for more details. With any luck, this might be for a future episode featuring Charice!
