It has been a spectacular year for Charice in the Land of the Rising Sun, but you Chasters can make it even better by voting her J-WAVE Radio’s “Best New Artist” for 2010. All you need to do is Vote!
J-WAVE Radio is a big fan of Charice, and their official Tokio Hot 100 chart saw their favorite Filipina take John Lennon’s classic Christmas track “Happy Christmas (War is Over)” to No 3 by December 19.
In fact, they had invited her to record the song specifically to use it as the official theme for their winter “Love and Peace, Wishes Come True” campaign. In a country whose culture places honor and respect above all else, extending an honor that is only offered to “first-class artists” shows just how highly the 18-year-old is regarded in Japan.
Charice also recorded a mini-concert on December 19 for J-WAVE, which was broadcast on Christmas Day, and she was then featured again on the station’s “Curious” program on December 30.
The Laguna-born songstress has made a myriad of other interviews and appearances in the country and, in short, Japan is crazy about Charice!
But, she still needs the help of the global ‘Charice Internet Army’, as she’s up against some stiff opposition in her category, with Justin Bieber, Ke$sha, Hawaiian-born Bruno Mars, English soul singer/songwriter Rox, Australian rock musician Orianthi, and South Korean girl band Kara, also in the running.
Justin Bieber has been sweeping up awards left and right (prompting some Chaster to argue ‘he must be stopped!’) and in J-WAVE’s Special Hot 100 chart for 2010, is placed at No 13 with “Baby”, one place behind Charice’s “Pyramid” at No 12.
In the same chart, Ke$sha is at No 3 with “Tik Tok,” Bruno Mars is at No 4 with “Just The Way You Are,” Rox is at No 26 with “My Baby Left Me,” Orianthi, is at No 46 with “According to You,” and Kara is at 100.
To fend off the opposition and make Charice the Best New Artist of 2010, just go to the official McDonald’s Tokio Hot 100 Awards page, and vote. The steps are easy:
1. Click on the dot beside Charice’s name
2. Go to the very bottom of the page and click the large button.
3. You can feel good that you’ve done your bit!
Please vote in every category. J-Wave asks for votes in every category so it might be necessary to do so to guarantee that our votes for Charice count. Categories are (from top to bottom, left to right): Best Song, Best Male Artist, Best Female Artist, Best Group and Best New Artist.
Voting officially open on January 9, but it continues until February 6, with an awards party set to be held on February 24. Luckily, Charice is free that night, despite being in the middle of her Japan Tour: her only night off is the 24th!
Come on! Make Charice’s 2010! Make her J-WAVE’s Best New Artist for the year! Every self-respecting Chaster would!!
