‘Hit Man Returns’ DVD Set for March Release

‘Hit Man Returns’ DVD Set for March Release

Charice’s remarkable duet with Ne-Yo is one of the highlights of the new “Hit Man Returns: David Foster & Friends” DVD and CD that will be released on March 1.

Recorded at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas last October, the show brought Charice on stage with some of the music business’ biggest names, including Natalie Cole, Seal, Donna Summer and Chaka Khan.

However, it was Charice in particular that everyone was talking about following the concert. Her performance with Ne-Yo of Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” caught the attention of those in the crowd in particular, but she also got standing ovations for her renditions of “All By My Self” and “To Love You More.”

The show was filmed for PBS and is set to be broadcast in March as part of their Great Performances series and, if his “Hit Man: David Foster & Friends” concert of 2009 is anything to go by, it is set to be one of the biggest TV events of the year.

David Foster himself believes that the concert was one of the finest that he has been involved in, and mentioned Charice as providing “a stand-out performance” from those given by seasoned professionals.

“There were so many magic moments that night. I’m especially proud of the terrific combinations of talent including a medley with Chaka, Seal and Michael Bolton, a breathtaking duet with Natalie Cole and Ruben Studdard and a standout performance by Charice, Ne-Yo and Robert Randolph,” he said.

The CD and DVDs will be released under David Foster’s own 143/Reprise Records label. As a taster, we’ve provided footage of two of Charice’s performances below. But remember, you can have these at home in high-definition DVD to get a full version of the experience.

Available March 1st, 2011. If you want “Hit Man Returns: David Foster & Friends” for yourself, then get in contact with your local music stores and order your copy. Every other Chaster will!

    I can’t find any figures of Charice Album’s worldwide total unit sales. So my estimate is between 2.24 million to 2.5 million units. Please shoot your comments.

    The latest DFF Tour, especially the one which I and my family enjoyed at the Big Dome last October, further cemented Charice’s reputation as the best singer in the world and further proved that Oprah’s proclaiming Charice as “The Most Talented Girl in the World” is no fluke…Never in my life did i have goose bumps with anybody’s singing performance before…with due respect to celine, whitney & mariah…only charice and honestly…only charice bombarded me with all these nerve wracking, awe inspiring and super-addicting… perfect renditions of all the songs i love and learn to love…

    Just my two cents. Charice is young, a laser beam, a quick study and very smart in her musicality. She has a tendency to sing (ie Halo & IWALY) in a slightly different ways depending perhaps on the crowd, venue, purpose or how she wants to entertain the audience. In other words she put her “signature” and deliver the song to the audience in her “own” unique way possible.

    I don’t see any negative issue in her singing style. Like Oprah, Ellen, Celine, Andrea and DF maybe Beyonce will love her too if she hears Charice’s rendition of Halo, Listen, Irreplaceable, Telephone and Stand Up for Love. Peace.

    Hi starbuck245.

    The youtube video of the FAAN event wherein Charice sang “Halo” is a good example of too much curl in the singing style. It just was an overkill of her previously perfected renditions.

    Perhaps Charice wanted to showboat her acrobatic singing prowess here and mind you she can actually deliver whenever she wants.

    But the question arises wether that performance sacrificed a better renditon if done in a much purer straightforward depiction rather than with all those uneccessary “curls’. So does style equate to quality? Most R&B singers would do a lot of these acrobatic curls just to compensate for the lack of vocal range and power. But for Charice to do it? Nah, Charice is the epitome of Vocal power and range and she does’nt need to prove to anyone that she can also do curls even if it isn’t necessary or required.

    Case point is the rendition of Christina Aguilera of the song “Run to you” wherein because of her deficiency in hitting high notes she rather balanced off this lack thereof with curls and stylizations. Charice “Run to you” as rendered in B&K was a much straightforward and purer style and to me personally it was the best version ever done. Actually it is one Charice’s song that has become my all time favourite!

    the link for the FAAN “Halo” redition-

    You decide.

      Oh man, I am too old. I thought you were talking about her hair. (ha,ha). But I see what you’re saying. She may be trying out different styles, like you said, but I don’t see her doing it on a consistent basis. I’m not a fan of a lot of too many runs, also.

      Thanks for the follow up CDad. I have a better idea what curling means…like runs and up and downs (layman terms? :P)

      I don’t know. While I don’t disagree with you and at the risk of sounding like an extremely defensive chaster, I think we notice those things because we’re watching vids of all her performances. I get the feeling that Cha being so accepting of such a range of music that she’s just exploring and trying different things all the time. I don’t think someone like Cha could sing a song over and over the same way regardless of how great a version it is.

      Exploration and experimentation are how great things are accomplished and discovered. In music and art, you just don’t know how something will be received until you make it available to everyone. I’m grateful that Cha is willing to put herself out “out there” for all to see and try different things. Some don’t work out great and some are fantastic.

      Cha is so versatile and has such a wide range of voice and song interests, that she is a dozen great singers in one. And isn’t that one of the facets of Cha that draws Chasters and has us eagerly waiting for her next appearance/performance?

      I’m not disagreeing with you, CDad, but I think the downside of for example singing the B&K version of Run to You over and over, is the risk that we would quickly become bored — why watch her new performance of RTU if we can just replay B&K over and over?

    I guess by now all regulars here would know that I am a certified blue blooded Chaster.

    I stated this fact because I need to comment on recent development concerning Charice’s present singing style. This may come as a negative observation to some, but believe me, it is far from that. What I have to say is constructive criticism directed only for the further perfection of our muse.

    Lately Charice has been experimenting with too much curls in her style. What Filipinos would say as too much “Kulot”(curls).

    Previous Charice to me was already perfect and maybe a small doze of these curls were added spice. However lately, and maybe because of her thrust to be more R&B, she has been overdoing this excercise to the point that it does not suit her anymore.

    Still beautifully rendered actually but……but for me it is like an overdone gourmwt course. An overkill.

    Maybe its just me I said, but scrolling other Chasters sites and
    Youtube video comments, her latest renditions do have this peculiarities that have been also observed by other fans. Note that I said fans and not detractors or crabs.

    Nonetheless for this latest DF&F video, her renditions were perfect.

    Again this is just a personal observation not to demean or discredit our Charice. Perhaps she is still in tnis experimental stage in trying to perfect a certain genre style. if so, then she is not that complete yet for this particular style and will still take a little while to do so. Yet, all the success for her to conquer such a genre in the future.

    Peace.

    This moment is like a calm before the big storm hits. Charice is busy recording her album and shooting for Glee episodes. Chasters are spoiled on new articles and news about Charice almost daily.

    be successful…be patience…OK back to hibenation.

    Because it is so quiet here at ChariceMania, this “Lent” of March 2011, I can honestly say that I gave up (partly my addiction to) Charice for almost several weeks now and counting.

    Counting the days and hoping that our “agony” of waiting will soon be replaced with “estacy” of when our Princess comes back to this site. Peace.

    The last I read she was working up to 12 hours a day on her new album. For me it’s good to know she is staying in one place for a while instead of traveling all over the place. Some of us want to see her get some rest, but if she does than we wonder why there is “nothing” going on; as we miss current news about her.

    I would love to see her on AI, DWTS, or any of the late nite talk shows, but I wonder if it would make sense at this time as her new album is not completed yet. It’s just logical these appearances would come at the time when she has something to promote.

    But I can’t wait to see what’s next on her journey, just like the rest of my fellow Chasters. Like many tell me – patience, patience.
