Once again, Jesse McCartney will feature alongside the Filipino singing superstarlet, having already appeared together, at The Grove in Los Angeles on November 21. The two look set to work even more closely together with confirmation that the Filipino songster is recording with RnB producer Sean Garrett, one of the most highly regarded record producers in the business. Garrett worked on McCartney’s new album “Have It All”, which will be released on December 28, and the link has prompted speculation that a collaboration could be on the cards.
Charice will have become familiar with Miranda Cosgrove’s work too, as both appeared in the 2010 Kissmas Bash in Buffalo, NY last Saturday night, along with Maroon 5, amongst others. At the age of just 17, Miranda Cosgrove beats Charice in the youth stakes but is only beginning to develop her own career in music. She is best known as an actress, appearing in the lead role in ‘iCarly’ and supporting role on ‘Drake & Josh’ on US TV. She broke into music in 2007 when she recorded the ‘iCarly’ theme song “Leave it All to Me”, which crept inside the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 100, and she released her debut album, ‘Sparks Fly,’ in April this year, which reached No 8 in the Billboard 200 Album Chart.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Emily Osment is another teen actor to make the crossover into music, with her appearances in ‘Spy Kids 2′ and ‘Spy Kids 3-D’ movies and the ‘Hanna Montana’ TV series making her a highly recognized figure in the genre. Osment’s debut album, ‘Fight or Flight’, was released in October.
Also on the bill is Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper, rap artist Flo Rida. He’s best known for his singles ‘Low’ from his debut album ‘Mail on Sunday’, which reached No 1 in the US, and ‘Right Round’, from his second album ‘R.O.O.T.S’, which was at No 1 for 6 weeks. His new album ‘Only One Flo (Part 1)’ was released on November 30.
The addition of Hershey’s Jingle Ball to her itinerary brings to 11 her itinerary of events Charice will have performed at by Christmas, making it a very busy time for the Filipina.
