onewoman290 en 75x75 One Woman: A Song for UN Women“From China to Costa Rica, from Mali to Malaysia acclaimed singers and musicians, women and men, have come together to spread a message of unity and solidarity: We are “One Woman”.”
To be launched on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2013, the song is a rallying cry that inspires listeners to join the drive for women’s rights and gender equality. “One Woman” was written for UN Women, the global champion for women and girls, to celebrate its mission and work to improve women’s lives around the world. This year, International Women’s Day will focus on ending violence against women — a gross human rights violation that affects up to 7 in 10 women and a top priority for UN Women. As people everywhere prepare their commemorations, “One Woman” reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination: “We Shall Shine!” Join us on 8 March to help spread the word and enjoy this musical celebration or women worldwide.

    I would like to commend neil delant (Virginia Beach), FlorOfTexas (Texas), luckieme510 (Eastern Time zone), LOUDER:)) (Canada), Bing (Sydney, Australia), Charicefollower (Austria), CLFan (Pacific Time zone), Vincent, paper_cups, PitYoung, IntoTheSky, Zen58, luzsantos, CHAccount, Grumpq and cancon for your invaluable participation that made our idol garner 193,000 votes to this day (10:00pm Arizona). We all did a magnificent and tremendous job, forgetting our hurting fingers and arms not to mention lack of sleep and time for our personal enjoyment.
    Now that Kim is ahead by 198,000 votes and with only a few out of thousands of us doing the hard work and it is humanly impossible for us to catch up, it is but fair and honorable to concede that Kim Chiu is more popular and she deserves to win. It is with regrets that the support we expected from other Chasters never came.
    In conclusion to this, despite the many justifications and rationalizations that our fellow Chasters have defensively expressed to the contrary, it appears that there is truth to the opinions of babaengmasabaw, hasbeen_nakaagad, susnakuinday and ex-chaster. Aside from the bonafide Chasters mentioned above, the imagined Chasterworld does not at all exist. With Charice now just being a second fiddle to Kim Chiu it is time for us to go our own way without any feeling of remorse for a struggle with no victory. There is no shame nor blame being No. 2 among 21 nominees. Let’s toast to that, folks. See you someday.

      greatodu, I salute to your leadership to get the voting Chasters together and get that much result in short time. Let’s toast to our achievement even if Cha didn’t win. The number will not define our success!!!

      I don’t know about the rest but, I sat aside time before and after work and before bedtime; I was tired but happy. But all in all, I saw these great efforts with your constant encouragement and drive – that’s a Chapassion.

      @greatodu, me too, I salute to your leadership. You are a true leader! Without your constant encouragement & hardwork I will never have the adrenalin to keep going on voting. Never in my life that I have tried voting online & this is the very first time. It was fun voting for Charice. And to all the Chasters who had joined the fun….I salute you too! Goodluck to all of us! CHEERS!!!!!!!(I maybe probably click that mouse one in a while to vote for Charice, :D )

        Hahahaha very true indeed! Even that voting was addictive because of Charice. I was actually late for work on a coouple of times but hey, no regrets.

        I was so engrossed with the voting that I forgot time to get ready for work and bed. My family tease me a lot (in a loving way though) because almost every weekends we have Chasport in Chalounge in front of Chatv watching Chavideos with Chafriends.

      @greatodu, I admire your leadership and I thank you for that. Because of your continues encouragement and hardwork like what @LOUDER:)) said we kept on and continue to vote. And that’s not easy, coming from way below to be on number 2 in a short period of time is an accomplishment by itself although we should not settled for this in the future (right chaster all over the world)…But I like how those chasters you mentioned above including myself posting the scores from time to time here….it’s like election day..hahaha. Anyway I salute everybody…keep the love for Charice burning…

      Thank you my fellow Chasters for your great support to our princess, we did a good job. Imagine she was only I think No.19 when I discovered about the voting but she ended up being No.2. despite of few Chasters who participated in voting. I salute you for your unconditional love and support and that’s what makes me feel connected to you guys.

    if you want her to have a better career and wonderful life think twice before making such negative comments on her. our accusations and opinion are based mostly on shallow information besides ,she needs more peace than pressure from everyone of us.

      Hi Simon & everyone. I appreciate this info. I am in the opinion that this’s overdue. Some Chasters and followers are going crazy worried and lonely.

      She does not have to explain anything to anyone but, I thought it’s best that her followers hear something from her even just a word or two just to say for example “Hi ot thank you or be patient etc”; whatever it is so long as it comes direct from her be – in twitter or yt

      Can sosmebody post an English translation of her letter please.

      We’continue to vote and I hope that we can achieve to the top!!

      Thank you Simon I saw the video and I agree with what PJ had to say.

      I haven’t seen Cha’s letter to Chasters suggesting that she was taking a break but I hope that when she does return to perform that she will have the professional management that are to standrard of her calibre and her global audience.

      Lately I have just been biting my tongue regarding the inappropriate behaviour and inappropriate language of her musical director – troy. His language in twitter has realy been vulgar & despicable – about up to 2/3 months ago posts.

      Also, I didn’t like the idea Troy bragging about his influence over Charice… It could be well true but he didn’t have to say it. some of it were in defence for his sister Cheesa & also Charice. Even in a number of pictures he posted with Charice – the latest one was her personal gig I think Malaysia, he is taking centre stage.

      I can understand that for Chasters of which he is one but, he is an employee first. Have you ever heard of people working for any artist in the background role taking centre stage with the artist & all this BS bagging of themselves other than in the Phils.

      My personal impression & firend is that he trying to grab the publicity in close association with Charice with the indirect/implied intention of promoting his sister’s career and himself.

      What matters to many is Charice and she should not overstep in the limelight to self promote his interest…and at times acts as press officer for Cha. It’s like an info tease with vagueness.

      Maybe this sort of behaviours sit well with Phil audience but not the global followers of Charice.

      I am in the belief that Cha’s management would be best handled by people of international taste and appettite with reputation and standard sellable to her global market. At the moment, Troy comes across as her “management”???????

      Don’t get me wrong, Troy is very good with the musical instruments/electronics I guess and that’s about it as far as cha’s career is concerned – this is the reflection of my Austrlain group following Charice.. And Troy’s actions/behaviour should reflect the standard of Cha of which he is working for – not this vulgar language and despicable outburst.

      Yes he is a person too but, he is an employee first working for Charice. While he is with her, he should just tone down his language and stop the grab for the limelight, becomes annoying.

      Some of you may not like of what I have to say here now but, I speak the thoughts of the many I know in our Sydney group. I must say that our interest here is simply the unbelievable talent of Charice and almost all of us in the group did not follow any particular artists until we came to know Charice.

      May I also say to those haters of Charice, make sense with what you disagree with her, no name calling and not character assassination or personal attack. Focus on the talents because that is where she is for us after all and that’s how she came to us. Make your personal suggestions/views out but don’t get this notion that she will exactly do what you and I want..

      She will always fall short in pleasing anyone’s expectations but she can surely transform some of those expectations in her own way and that we should credit her for doing so as well as be gratified ourselves that she somehow made those efforts to reach out to us.. If still you are not happy then abandone her and find someone else who you fell most happiest to support. Don’t make it hardest for you to be happy….go, where joys lead you!

      I hope that some sense and something good will come out from your minds and hearts out of this this post. Thank you all and good afternoon from Sydney from Sydney.

      the contents of the letter has not been publicized yet. we only have a picture. the writing cannot be deciphered based on the picture, so please don’t speculate that she is taking a break. it will just add to the confusion and it could be construed as fact.

      If I’m not mistaken, the third line of her letter says Mahal na mahal ko kayo, means I love you so much, I’m sorry I tried my best but it’s too blurry. Be patient guys!!

      I hope she uses this break to resume her online studies at U of NH. A long time ago she said that if she had to choose between a career in music and a college degree she would choose education. Whatever she now chooses I know she will do well.

      Hi Luzsantos … thank you. Some fans are partial. They like her singing but her looks. They can’t decide whether stick around or go. I just hope they find the answers to what really makes them happy and go for it. This is a free world after all. Meanwhile, Charice is doing what she really want to do and that sets her apart from some of her fans. Charice knows what she wants and she does it! She’s brave & strong, patient & persevering, and works very hard! That’s character I would want my children to follow. Kaya lang I have none. Si Charice na lang BB ko, lol …

    I always believe in not trying to work too hard to please people around me. I just have to be myself and be proud of who I am and what I am. I do not need to fit in people’s criteria of beauty. Who really belong in my life will just come and they will stick around. I am so free and I am so LOVED. The world loves me back and that is all I need. I hope Charice will do the same, and everyone of you Chasters. Love unconditionally. If Charice is not the artist you want to support coz she makes you unhappy, why keep being unhappy by checking on what she does? Does not make sense. Maybe it is time to FREE yourself and go find your happiness somewhere else. It is only a couple of years since Charice started showing signs of her sexual preference. To me she is only 2 yrs old and still learning. Go Cha be happy for yourself and the rest will just fall into place for yah!.

      What sort of love to death is that? Loving someone to death is unconditional. Death is a serious matter. So it’s either you like Charice when she’s behaving the way you want her to behave, or you don’t if she didn’t. Stop kidding yourself. And don’t use ‘love to death’ if you don’t mean it.

    I think lots of fans don’t know about the voting. The last time I visited Charicemania this voting was just started but then there was some talk that this race is not that important and some people said not to bother.

    Again I visited this week that’s when I get started voting. Please everybody just let other chasters know about the voting then I think we’ll be okay.

    Keep voting. Cheers
