Charice’s status as a truly international figure has been confirmed with her inclusion in a Russian TV channel’s list of top entertainment events in 2010.
Izvestia TV included Charice’s rise in the world music industry as one of the most significant events of last year in a program titled ‘Top 10 Events in the Entertainment Industry in 2010.”
The program makers included interview footage with Charice herself and her “Pyramid” partner, Iyaz, as well as opinions and comments from a host of Russian media personalities. One of the comments was, ” Who says that miracles do not happen? Charice herself is a miracle, because she’s a YouTube star, and that means a lot!”
With so much of Charice’s career linked to the US, Canada, Japan and the rest of Asia, not to mention her home country of the Philippines, we can say that she is an international star. But her position in the Top 10 events by a Russian station shows just how big the Laguna teenager has become.

The English translation was done with the help of “NPlayaz“, a rap duet of DK aka Taste and TT aka Tnice. They are Ukranian hip hop group that was also featured alongside Charice in this top 10 list. They made it no. 1 on Top 100 Charts Underground USA.

Charice is about to begin her Japan tour, with her opening concert in Nagoya on Monday, February 21, before two dates in Tokyo (22 and 23) and a final appearance in Osaka on February 25.
With a single release expected in March, and a new album set to be released later this year (possibly May), she is certain to have a busy time of it for the foreseeable future.
It may only be a matter of time before Charice gets her first engagement on Russian soil, but it’s clear that her reputation as a young diva, and a global superstar in the making, is already preceding her.
