We know that Charice isn’t one to take the success she is enjoying for granted: she’s much too down to earth for that.
Which is why she was happy to take the opportunity to express her appreciation at being involved in the musical TV phenomenon that is “Glee.”
“Startalk,” the entertainment program on Philippine TV station GMA, reported on Saturday last that the nation’s biggest international music celebrity felt “blessed” to be part of “Glee,” with footage taken from Charice’s press conference after her free concert at the Enchanted Kingdom theme park on January 9.
In the video segment, Charice speaks briefly about her free concert at Enchanted Kingdom, her new album and once again gives nothing away on the specifics of her return to “Glee.” However, she is more forthcoming regarding her gratitude at being accepted by the show’s creators and its fans worldwide.
“I think I’m very blessed, and I am very thankful to people of other countries, because even though I’m Asian, they placed their trust in me,” she says.
Another ‘blessing’ she referred to was her inclusion on Entertainment Weekly’s list of “11 to watch in 2011,” an exclusive list that establishes her as one of the world’s major up-and-coming music stars.
“I wasn’t expecting it because of the number of new artists in the scene now, and I am very proud to the Filipino and be able to make it there,” she comments. “I just want to thank them, you know, for making me a part of it. So, I’m very happy.”
Of course, as an 18-year-old, some journalists couldn’t resist asking her about her plans for romance. She was clearly surprised to be faced with the topic.
“Me? No! Mommy is open, but I’m not,” she laughed, before continuing. “It’s not because I don’t want love. Maybe I’m just not ready and I’m still enjoying what I’m doing. So, there will be time for that.”
Within hours of the press conference, Charice was on a plane to the US where she would meet with David Foster and Donna Summer to perform before the Television Critics Association tour in Los Angeles.
Since then, she has also performed at the FAAN gala dinner in LA and as part of ‘David Foster and Friends’ at a private dinner at Donald Trump’s exclusive Mar-a-Lago Resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
