Charice has admitted she “would love to” play some part in a Celine Dion concert in the Philippines, if a concert is arranged.
The Filipino international star flew in to Manila on Sunday, January 30, for another 2-day stay to film a TV special, and welcomed the idea of being involved in a proposed Celine Dion concert later this year.
Any concert by the French-Canadian diva in the Philippines is some way off, with Celine set to begin a 3-year residency in Las Vegas in March and expected to promote her new French language album in Europe in April.
However, Charice showed she would have no hesitation in taking up an offer if it were made to her, with her own schedule not full beyond her tour of Japan from February 21 to 25.
Asked it she would agree to either appear as a guest or to provide opening support for someone Charice has described as “her ultimate idol,” she simply answered, “I would love to”.
Celine has been a life-long hero for Charice and on her second appearance on Oprah, the Filipina was introduced to Celine via satellite. That was in 2008, and in September that year, Charice was invited to be a guest performer in Celine’s concert at Madison Square Garden.
Charice is in Manila to shoot a Valentine’s Day special, “Home for Valentine’s,” for GMA 7, an engagement organized after the Filipino singing icon was forced to pull out of a planned recording in November of a “Home for Christmas” special due to illness.
It’s the first time that the Laguna diva has been in the Philippines since her performances at the Mall of Asia and Enchanted Kingdom earlier this month.
Charice will fly back to the US tomorrow (February 1) to return to the recording studio where she has been busy collaborating with a variety of artists and producers on her new album.
