On the day I joined Charicemania, I posted my first blog. I praised all the Chasters for promoting Charice. Everyone here wants to take part in helping Charice reach the top. It’s now 2011 and we’ve witnessed how Charice is now being admired and even adored by more and more people from all walks of life, from different countries.
I believe wherever Charice is so are the Chasters. I personally think she is now in another phase of her career so should the Chasters be on another phase of support. We should not only continue what we have been doing for her but also consciously promote her from a different perspective.
Before I talk about the different perspective, let’s take a look at what has transpired so far.
It’s only the second month of the year and so much has happened. Charice rendered songs for at least 70K (conservative estimate) people at MOA, gave free concert at the jam-packed Enchanted Kingdom, wowed TV critics at the Orpheum Theater, performed at the posh Mar-a-Lago Club, entertained Red Dress Awardees and guests, and belted out big notes at the FAAN event. And very recently, we were glued to the TV set or our computer screens to witness her longer than usual performances, the Valentine’s Special at GMA7. All of these excited us. We were thrilled when we learned about the positive feed-backs about her performances. We expressed our appreciation to those who believed in and cared for her at every chance we got.
On the other hand, we were angered when we read about false allegations, negative comments and unspeakable write-up about her. Anger became hatred when the truth was turned upside down. Boycott was called for when obscenities were sanitized. But when Charice spoke of forgiveness and acceptance of apologies, we calmed down. When Charice spoke of what a real Chaster is, we tried to be that.
Where are all these extreme reactions coming from?
I’ve heard and read similar comments of many Chasters regarding their experiences with Charice. A few examples are staying up late watching her videos, forgetting about their cooking because of her music but with no regrets at all, smiling or crying while watching her, saving up for concert tickets, traveling many miles to see her, being fanatic for the first time, doing Ninja acts to capture her on videos, and having goosebumps all over. It seems that there is some kind of magic spell that happens in the presence of Charice, be it in the physical or virtual realm. You may have your own special ways of answering how and why these happen. As for me, I don’t have a ready explanation.
Although I have used superlatives to describe her performances and my own experiences, I always feel the words do not match the real thing. I have recently commented on a video and on a posted article that there isn’t a word that can justify whatever it is that is Charice. When I first wrote my thoughts about her way back in October last year, I got stuck in a sentence because I could not find the appropriate adjective to suit the kind of moment I had whenever I watched her on YouTube. I was satisfied only after letting my pen spell out “charice-tic” to describe it. I have modified its spelling though — CHARICETIC!!! — with the capitalization and the three exclamation points as part of the spelling.
Let me go back to the different perspective I mentioned earlier. Please allow me to repeat the third paragraph above.
I believe wherever Charice is so are the Chasters. I personally think she is now on another phase of her career so should the Chasters be on another phase of support. We should not only continue what we have been doing for her but also consciously promote her from a different perspective.
We all have the good feeling whenever we read or hear the name CHARICE. We all rejoice when we learn a radio station plays her songs. We all appreciate somebody else’s appreciation of her. We all jump at the sight of her. We all laugh at her funny antics. We all are amazed at her signature gestures. We all smile when we see her sweet smile. We all want to console her when we see tears in her eyes, maybe because by doing so, we are also consoled. And many more similar to these happen. Don’t we want all our loved ones to experience the same? We can even extend the experience to strangers as well.
Like most, if not all, Chasters, I believe Charice is more than her voice. She’s more than the songs she sings. As described by the man from the Italian show, Charice is God’s Gift to us. Let’s help others experience that Gift, too. We Chasters have been enjoying the Gift. Being the Month of Love, now is the best time to share it. Let’s invite people to watch her Valentine’s Special at GMA7 on YouTube. I believe this is one event that we have experienced Charice to the max. In this special, a first-timer will
know her early struggles, her inspiring relationship with her mother, her powerful voice and her ability in performing on stage, and her other entertaining talents like the Chipmunks impression. After that, let’s tell them about her solo concert in Japan so they have something to look forward to even if only through the videos. Let’s share how they can experience Charice in different websites. Let’s do this not just because we love our Princess but also because we want others to have the good feelings, I for one, never experienced before knowing Charice. Let’s help them have their own CHARICETIC!!! moments.
