Charice is a year older and is now at a new stage in her life – her 20’s! 2012 has so far been a special year with many turning points. The year is passing by so fast that Chasters might not have noticed that she is not a kid anymore – we can now call her the “Fierce Young Superstar” of her generation. Let us have a quick review of what happened since the beginning of the year.
Charice graced the cover of Preview, a Philippine fashion magazine. She defied gravity with her unbelievable looks. Long hair, sultry eyes, and stunning poses! When it hit the stands, people mistakenly thought that the pictures were photoshopped! The photos went viral. Later on, behind the scenes photos of the shoot proved that it really was Charice in her natural beauty.
Philippine TV Network GMA produced a Valentine’s Special for Charice and it turned out to be melodramatic when everyone witnessed the other side of Charice. She shed tears as she remembered her father’s death in 2011 and the heartbreaking fact that she worked very hard to be able to buy food for her family. The show posted high ratings according to several media surveys.
The young lady held her first solo Asian tour! Entitled the Infinity Tour, it was named after her second album released in Asia. The tour took her to Dubai, Indonesia, Singapore, Hongkong, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea! Definitely a tiring tour but Charice’s energy did not wane, or if it did, she did not let it show. She made everyone happy including Youtube viewers. Watching her live is like witnessing a supernatural talent in this world. She also debuted a new, edgier look, which is probably one of the major turning points of her young career. Plus she was one of the guest performers at Perez Hilton’s “Mad Hatter Tea Party”. This was Perez’s 34th birthday bash and charity event.
Charice was a winner at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award in the Favorite Asian Act category. She won over several popular artists in Asia which again put her name on the world map. This was a new category, and Charice was the first to win it.
What a sumptuous treat when Charice went back to her home country, to be one of the mentor/judges of Philippine X-Factor! As of this posting, pictures of Charice as a judge are circulating in Twitter, and some videos are even available on YouTube. The show will start airing on June 23rd so we are all in for a treat of a weekly dose of Chaddiction!
Half of the year is almost done and we know Charice has more to offer towards the end of 2012 including her upcoming Hollywood movie “Here Comes the Boom”. We are also and hoping for the US release of her second album which, according to Charice, will have different material from the Asian version. So, let us EXPECT the UNEXPECTED. Charice will always us give her best.

Can you imagine how exciting it is that Charice and The Voice finalist Cheesa Laureta are collaborating on a song co-written by our Charice? Cheesa was a contestant on the recently concluded second season of the US talent search “The Voice.” The Filipino-American from Hawaii managed to make it to the Top 12 before she was eliminated.
In an interview after the contract signing for X Factor, Charice mentioned that she wrote a song for Cheesa.”We are really excited because we wrote a song for her and we are collaborating,” Charice said, adding that Cheesa is planning to visit Manila to release the song. “She’s very excited because she wants to come here to the Philippines to release a single written by yours truly,” Charice added.
Charice and Cheesa are also looking for other Filipino artists who they can work with, saying, “We are looking for other artists here who could have a duet with her.”
Is this a collaboration that we could look forward to this year? What else has Charice up her sleeve? Whatever it is, we are surely in for an exciting ride.
