Charice’s Mommy Raqz said, “Yes, she sings tonight and she’s in good health now.”
Mommy Raqz said that from now on, she will not allow Charice to eat just anywhere.
“[I will tell Charice to eat] just the food that I’ve prepared. No [more] sushi. ” said Mommy Raqz.
She added, “We need to thank the Lord for always [being] there behind Charice’s back.”
Mommy Raqz earlier announced that Charice had a minor indigestion after consuming sushi at a Singaporean restaurant.
Charice’s mother Raquel Pineda, better known as Mommy Raqz, posted a twitter update at 4:03 PM (GMT+8).
She tweeted, “Don’t worry chasters. Charice is OK now. She had a slight stomachache due to the sushi that she ate…”
Mommy Raqz added all of the members of the David Foster and Friends Asian Tour staff were also worried by the incident. She said that she is thankful that nothing seriously tragic happened.
Charice’s Philippine talent Manager Grace Mendoza also said that it was a relatively minor case of food poisoning.
(SINGAPORE, 1500 hrs) Corroborating twitter updates indicate that Charice was rushed into a hospital today, the morning after her appearance in first edition of the David Foster and Friends Concert in Singapore.
At 2:35 PM (GMT +8), Singaporean Children’s Book author David Seow tweeted , “Just saw singer Charice being rushed out of her hotel in Singapore in a wheelchair. Hope she is ok. Pray 4 her”
At the time, Seow was near the lobby of the hotel where Charice was staying.
At about the same time, another Singaporean member of the Twitterverse, Joyce Sim, posted , “I was just hanging around waiting for her (Charice). Next thing i know, one bunch of them rushed out. Then [there was] confusion.”
Charice’s management has officially cancelled her press conference this afternoon, along with her scheduled appearance in tonight’s David Foster and Friends Concert.
Multiple tweets from various users reveal that a large group escorted Charice, who was reportedly on a wheelchair.
Charicemania attempted to contact both Charice’s management and her mom, but they were not available to comment as of press time.
Charice is currently in Singapore as a performer in the five-city David Foster and Friends Asian Concert Tour.
Singapore is the tour’s fifth and final leg, after a non-stop whirlwind of performances that started in Tokyo, Japan on October 19, 2010.
Charice’s schedule since then has become very hectic, as shown by less frequent personal tweets and updates from the young star.
On October 28th, her latest tweet showed, ”Thank you so much Jakarta!!! This is it! LAST STOP! SINGAPORE!!!!”
