In an interview with HollywoodLife.com last June 14, Charice talked about the reasons why the “Louder” music video is not yet being made. Aside from prioritizing the “One Day” music video, she also mentioned something about going to Singapore. Charice didn’t elaborate about her Singapore trip, and there are no recent tweets about it on her Twitter account. But further searching on the web will lead you to various tidbits of info on this mysterious event – it turns out that Charice will be doing a show in Singapore.
The reason why there’s not much publicity for this show is that it’s a private event. Charice will perform on June 24, 2011 somewhere in Clark Quay – Singapore’s main entertainment district. She’ll be accompanied by her own band consisting of Chris Wrate, LaRoi Larkin, Troy Laureta and Lance Tolbert.
Despite Charice’s silence on Twitter about this event, her band has been continuously giving updates – and Chasters are most thankful for being kept updated about Charice’s preparation. The photo on the left was actually taken during one rehearsal, as Chris Wrate tweeted, “Off to rehearsal w/ the Charice band. Dope arrangements, tight groove, epic rock. Singapore’s gonna be slammin!”
Charice and her band took off for Singapore on June 22, and when they arrived at Singapore’s Changi Airport, they were greeted by Chasters who patiently waited for their idol to arrive. Capofret captured on video their little adventure. See here the playlist for her 3 videos:
Singaporean Chaster, ChariceSing, was one of the dedicated Chasters who welcomed Charice at the airport. She tweeted many photos of her dream-came- true moment of personally meeting Charice. Here are some of her photos where Charice signed autographs, and posed with her fans:
It was really sweet of Charice to entertain her fans despite being tired from a 14 hour flight from Los Angeles to Singapore. It’s really nice to see how friendly Charice is despite her huge fame. Jetlag still didn’t stop Charice from tackling a press conference attended by Singapore’s media. Here are some photos courtesy of Radio 91.3 FM:
We’re definitely looking forward to the interviews from that press conference. Singapore Chasters should start listening to the localFM stations for shows featuring Charice. In the photo at the right, Charice is being interviewed by DJ Super Mario of Power 98 FM. You should also tune in to E! News Asia for Charice sightings as she was also interviewed by Marion Caunter. @enewsasia even tweeted that they’re accepting questions for Charice: “So what are you waiting for? Tweet us your questions for @OfficialCharice and you might just get them answered!”
Marion Caunter posted a photo of herself with Charice. Marion also tweeted that she had lots of fun chatting with her: “With Charice. The cutest thing. Crazy talkin to her bout hanging out w Oprah, Celine, Andrea Bocelli etc. ♥”
Charice definitely made a splash in Singapore this week; surely even more press coverage will be done after she amazes the audience at the private concert. Hopefully some of the lucky ones who got to watch will post videos on YouTube, let’s all wish really hard that someone does do that.
