Regarding Charice’s future direction in music, I think I’ll defer to what we already know about Charice and her management team when it comes to where her next musical step takes her. We already know what D. Foster said, how the ‘easy’ thing to do would be to release an album chock full of ballads in line with Whitney, Celine and Mariah. We all know Charice’s core fan-base would eat that up, and such an album would likely go platinum in the U.S. much like Josh Groban’s albums have (the self-proclaimed ‘Joe Jonas to the online tablets viagra moms in America’). However, we also know that D. Foster/Oprah/Team Charice have chosen not to go that route. It’s clearly NOT about the money then, because going the ballad route would bring millions of sales and record-breaking world-wide tours for the reasons already mentioned in the Jim Beanz article thread. I firmly believe that Oprah and D. Foster are true to what they’ve been saying all along, that Charice is a gift into their lives, and thus share a responsibility to strive to do everything they can to enable Charice to reach her ultimate potential. Oprah is in the business of making dreams come true, and so if it were just about the money, then she could have enabled Charice to make a bunch of ballad records for the middle-age/senior crowd, and be on her way to cash the checks at the bank. However, among Charice’s canada pharmacy 24h many dreams is to have a #1 record on the radio airwaves/Billboard Top 100, not discounting the #1 dance record she already had with Pyramid. She’s said that herself on several occasions. Thus, in order for Charice to attain that feat, she needs to go in the dance direction as that is the ‘in’ thing right now. And not just ‘dance-remixes’ which only get airplay in the clubs, but R&B dance tunes that will get major airplay on Top 40 stations across the country and the world–which is really the thing that will enable an artist to break through into the mainstream music scene these days (leading to Grammys, People’s Choice, etc.). But I also want to bring caution to those (including myself) who automatically think going that route is a ‘cop-out’ and waste for Charice’s vocal talents. Sure, the current dance –tunes emphasize the background beat/groove over the singer’s vocals. And yes, we all know Charice’s vocals are what set her musically apart from the current group of singers on top of the charts today. However, let us not forget, that Charice herself is but 18 years old! And let us also not forget what she herself is listening to on her IPod these days. Like all teens, Charice is an avid fan of music and I’m sure she loves the current music playing on the radio (Gaga, Ne-Yo, etc.). There’s a reason why this current music is so popular amongst the young crowd, but doesn’t quite warm the hearts of us middle-agers/senior citizens–which of course, may change for us if Charice’s voice is behind those dance tracks. Thus, beyond just giving Charice an opportunity to hit #1 on the Top 40 charts with a dance R&B tune on the radio, going the dance route is I believe what Charice herself wants to do, as an artist, and I think D. Foster/Oprah would want nothing more than to give Charice the chance to do the kind of music SHE wants to do. It must take a lot for a 15 time Grammy award winner to realize that the prodigy he’s been given is too great a gift to hoard just for himself and those who listen to ‘his type of music’. Thus, D. Foster has unleashed Charice’s talents to those in the industry (Jim Beanz, Jackieboyz, and maybe Ne-Yo, etc.) who know the current music scene, and have the talent to produce a record that has the potential of generic name for viagra hitting the top of the charts.

It’s just a blessing that she’s been given the opportunity to work with the best in the business, and surely, she is not one to waste such a gift from God. For all those who are so worried about the kind of clothes she will wear and the kind of dance moves she’ll do, let’s just give Charice and her team the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. Has she let anyone down yet? I don’t think so. I also do think we all need to prepare ourselves to somewhat ‘let go’ of that really wholesome little girl image we have of Charice singing on Starking in 2007. She’s grown up a bunch since then, and she’ll continue to exude her developing maturity as she enters into the third decade of her young life. Let’ just trust Charice, her mom, and her team to do what is best for her and her career, and just enjoy the ride as Chasters. My only regret with all this talk about a second album now is that the world will never get to hear such songs as “In Love So Deep,” “Nobody’s Singing to Me”, “Reset,” “Nothing”, and “In This Song” playing on the airwaves and having their shots at hitting #1. What an absolute shame it would be if those songs were only exposed to those who purchased the album, and not to the majority of those who only listen to the radio for new music and purchase singles on iTunes. But that is for another discussion. Either way Chasters, let’s just be thankful that we have so much more of Charice and her music to look forward to in the days/weeks/months to come! And for those middle-agers/senior citizens who still long for the good-ole ballads, well you do have the Christmas levitra and upset stomach concerts coming up where I’m sure she’ll sing some nice slow Christmas songs. I’m fairly certain Charice will always include a ballad segment in her upcoming solo concerts, if not just to remind us all that she still has THAT VOICE, which will never fade, but may get somewhat masked behind those ‘lovely’ dance tunes that are the rave these days! Sure, Charice could have come into the world during the 80’s/90’s when ballads were ‘the’ thing, but then, she wouldn’t be the Charice that we all cheap generic viagra know and love today. She’s the Charice of 2010, and we can’t wait to hear what she has in store for us all, even if there’s a bit of auto-tune mixed in between her amazing vocals! By LAfan, charicemania.com .
