AOL Includes Charice on “21 Hottest” List

AOL Includes Charice on “21 Hottest” List

AOL has included Charice in their list of “21 Hottest Music Stars Under 21,” along with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Sean Kingston and more of the usual suspects.

They might be a little late, given that Billboard.com brought out their list of 21 under 21 a month ago, but clearly the inclusion of our favorite Filipina songstress has become an industry must in these things.

With her entry, AOL states that Charice is “now doing big things — the 18-year-old Filipina star has a recurring role as Sunshine Corazon on Fox’s ‘Glee’,” as reason for her inclusion. We’re also reminded that Charice is “the first solo Asian musician to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard top albums chart.”

AOL’s “Popeater” featured Charice in an interview published last May, when she confirmed her admiration for Beyonce and admitted that Justin Bieber was amongst a number of artists she would love to collaborate with.

“I look up to Beyonce. I love ‘Halo’ – it’s a perfect song, exactly the kind of song I love,” she said in an interview for AOL’s Popeater site. “She is one of my inspirations right now, aside from Lady gaga (laughs). I want to collaborate with Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber.”

As well as Bieber, Selena Gomez and Sean Kingston, Charice’s good friend David Archuleta is included in the list, as are Cody Simpson, Miley Cyrus, Greyson Chance, Miranda Cosgrove and Demi Lovato. Hollywood star Will Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, is the youngest at just 10 years old.

Charice’s seems to have been included in almost every “hot” of “hottest” list from 2010, after a year that has seen her catapulted onto the global music scene.

Next month, with her album “Charice” set to go platinum in Japan, she will begin her first solo tour with four dates in the Land of the Rising Sun.

And, of course, her popularity on “Glee” only adds velocity to her rising star. She is already set to appear in 5 more episodes, with her return to the TV musical phenomenon amongst the most eagerly awaited events on US television.

    I can never forget her first single back in the Philippines as it, to me, sums up her contining climb to the top – “It Can Only Get Better”. And that’s how it’s been each and every year.

    2011 is definitely the year we’ve all been waiting for Charice. This is the year where Charice will join the ranks of Lady Gaga, Justin B and Katy Perry etc…the year where topping the US Billboard Chart becomes ordinary!
