Charice’s own mother has moved to quell fears amongst Chasters in the Philippines that their singing icon is set to make fewer appearances on home soil. Concerns were raised by the fact that Charice’s itinerary while in the Philippines last weekend allowed for just a lightening visit involving two appearances in two days, January 8 and 9. She was afforded no time to spend at home with family, friends or fans, and flew out
immediately after her second engagement at the Enchanted Kingdom theme park in Laguna on January 9. However, Mommy Racquel, speaking to the press after her daughter’s acclaimed performance at SM Mall of Asia on January 8, stressed that the fact that Charice made two appearances in such a short period of time is proof that she remains committed to her Philippines-based fans. “If you look at it, even if she only stayed for two days here, she didn’t forget to perform in our country,” she reasoned. Mommy Racquel also admitted that though Charice’s schedule forces her to work so much outside of the Philippines, especially in the US, it is something that needs to be done. “Everyone knows that it’s really in America (that her work is). Just like her album in Japan is going platinum, of course, we can’t stop (a tour of Japan),” she explained, before offering a more philosophical explanation. “It depends on the flow,” she said. “As we all know, it’s just like where ever the water flows, that’s where we go.” Charice flew back to the US only a matter of hours after finishing her free concert on January 9 as part of the Enchanted Kingdom’s 15th anniversary celebrations. After arriving in California, she immediately joined David Foster for a live performance at the Television Critics Association tour. The event, which also featured Donna Summer, was to promote Foster’s upcoming PBS Special “The Hitman Returns,” which is set to go on air in March. Charice is due to begin her first solo tour in Japan in February, with gigs set for Nagoya (21st), Tokyo (22nd, 23rd) and Osaka (25th). Her album “Charice” was released there in July and was certified gold after less than 3 months – a rare accomplishment by a foreign artist.
