Entertainment Weekly’s official website, EW.com, has backed Charice to make an even deeper impression in the world of music and acting in 2011 than she did in 2010.
With the new year already buzzing with anticipation, EW has included the Filipino songstress in their list of “11 to Watch in ’11″, a gathering of the young and not-so-young actors and singers that EW expects will be remembered for all the right reasons 12 months from now.
The list also includes fellow music artist Wiz Khalifa, the 23-year-old Pittsburgh-based rapper who is due to follow up his “Black and Yellow” hit with an album release, and fellow actor, 25-year-old Rooney Mara, who fended off the likes of Scarlett Johanson to land the lead role in the movie trilogy, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
Charice had an incredible year in 2010, given the success of her debut international album, the remarkable excitement she’s generated in the notoriously difficult Japanese music scene, and her much-celebrated impact on American TV through “Glee”.
2011 does promise to provide more reasons for cheer. She is set to tour Japan in February and is widely expected to make it to Europe too, though no dates have been confirmed. Demand for her return to “Glee” will be answered, reportedly on February 6 just after the Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, she is about to step into the cosmetics market with the launch her own line in perfume set to take place in Manila on January 8.
But, accustomed to being included in shortlists of the great and most promising that she is, this will not doubt come as a major boost to Charice ahead of a year that is likely to dish more challenges out to her.
The unofficial bible when it comes to all things entertaining, Entertainment Weekly has been a big fan of Charice’s on “Glee.” After her debut on the show in September, one reviewer described her voice as “insane,” and her impact on the show was “absolutely bitch-tastic” – both ringing endorsements if ever there were.
In fact, Charice was given seventh spot on their list of the Most Popular Guest Apperances on the show, ranking above the likes of Britney Spears, Josh Groban and Olivia Newton John.
