Charice Wins J-WAVE Best Newcomer Award

Charice Wins J-WAVE Best Newcomer Award

Charice has won the J-WAVE Tokio Hot 100 Best Newcomer Award after results from an online voting campaign saw her placed above some of the biggest names in music.

The 18-year-old songstress, who is currently in Osaka where she will play the final concert of her 4-gig Japan tour, received her award at the official awards ceremony in Tokio on Thursday night (February 24). It’s understood that she also performed her hit track “Pyramid” on stage as part of the ceremony’s entertainment.

No comment has been made by Charice, either in an interview or through her Twitter account, but this is most probably because of the fact that an official announcement is expected to be made at 1pm (Japanese time) live on J-WAVE Radio on Sunday, February 27, with the winners in each of the 5 categories to be named.

However, news first broke of her win when an attendee tweeted that Charice had won and later blogged on the event.

Since voting took place online, it was not just the listeners to J-WAVE Radio that can be thanked for Charice’s victory, but the thousands of Chasters who voted also. The campaign started in January, and voting officially ended February 6.

Charice was one of 7 candidates in her category, along with Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Hawaiian-born Bruno Mars, English soul singer/songwriter Rox, Australian rock musician Orianthi, and South Korean girl band Kara.

It was stiff opposition, with Justin Bieber arguably the biggest name in music at the moment, and Ke$ha and Bruno Mars getting considerable chart success in Japan.

However, there was never any doubt that the Laguna-born teenager was the hot favorite for the gong, having become something of a darling of the music scene in Japan.

Her album, “Charice,” was released there last summer and within a few months went gold with sales beating the 150,000-mark. It peaked at No 6 in the Oricon album charts, with her single from the album, “Pyramid,” peaking at No 4.

Her popularity, and not just her chart success, prompted J-WAVE themselves to ask her to record John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (War is Over)” as the theme for their winter programming (by roger). That song went to No 2, while her highly acclaimed collaboration with Unique Zayas, “Wherever You Are,” went to No 1.

Further appearances, such as her mini-concert for J-WAVE in December, feature on J-WAVE’s “Curious” program on December 30, performance on Mezamashi TV and numerous other high profile programs ensured that Charice has been one on the most conspicuous artists on the Japanese airwaves this year.

She has also just finished her first solo concert tour, selling-out events in Nagoya, Tokyo and Osaka.
