“30 Days With Charice” is a documentary by Emmy-award winning director Matthew Mills, cut into four-minute-episodes with new ones released every Wednesday and Friday on Teen.com.
The eleventh episode took us from a concert in Allentown to another concert in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – but not before having a short side-trip to a radio station for a live interview. Charice is known for loving radio interviews because she “always has so much fun with the DJs”. KISS FM DJ Mike Miller looked like he had fun as well asking Charice about traveling all over the world and the kind of music that she does. The love for Charice didn’t stop in that radio booth that day because the audience at Hardware Bar was one amazing crowd. With them singing along and cheering, Charice easily got into the zone an delivered another exciting and memorable performance.
Our calendars have already changed from 2010 to 2011 during the whole run of this incredible series. And the days of looking forward to every Wednesday and Friday are about to end, as this episode is already the series finale of “30 Days With Charice”.
Day 30 is aptly titled “The End of the Beginning”, which marks Charice’s transition from being a newbie in the music business to being an adolescent, perhaps? But for sure, those string of performances, interviews, and promotions have already baptized her into a world where everything is just going to get bigger than anything we’ve seen Charice do in the past twelve episodes. And what better thing to do on this day than feed some tigers! Every artist needs to take a break from being on the road and performing, and more so for Charice because, as Tommy Page, VP of Top 40 Reprise/Warner Bros. Records, said: “at the end of the day she’s still a kid” and “we try to make her feel fun and comfortable”. But being the born-performer that she is, her tiredness from travelling and touring goes away the moment that she starts singing and seeing all the people who’re watching.
For some, success and fame may bring negative traits to the surface like egotism and greed. But David Foster sees Charice differently, “Contrary to what you might think about what happens to people when they start getting success, I believe she’s somebody that will stay humble; and I believe she’s somebody that’ll keep singing whether there’s success or not.”
Both Iyaz and Marc Johnston, Charice’s manager, have seen something very special in her. Iyaz reveals how he’s become protective of her, who he considers as his little sister. Johnston even said how “there’s more talent in that girl than you can describe.” He also believes how film and television is going to be a big part of her music career, “it’s her destiny, I think.”
Charice describes her current stardom as something that should not be thought of surely. She takes it one step at a time, and is currently being thankful for the “achievements of my single and my album, that landed on Billboard at No. 8.” But there’s a fighter inside Charice, and she won’t settle for anything less if she can still do better, “It’s all good for me, but I’m just hoping for more.”
Being Asian can indeed be a hindrance for achieving international stardom and gaining a wide fan base in America, but Charice has already proven that it’s not impossible. And as a perfect ending to the series, Charice expresses how thankful she is for the support she’s got from the likes of Oprah, David Foster, Ellen, and of course, the Chasters all over the world. “Because of their love and support, I feel like they’re my family.”
As her thirty day press tour winds down, Charice takes time out for some fun at Six Flags where she feeds tigers with her brother, Carl. She’s still a kid, after all! Charice reflects back on the past month’s adventures and looks ahead to the promising future in store.
“30 Days With Charice” officially ends with this episode but Charice’s career is just starting to skyrocket and this won’t be the last that we see of her, that’s for sure. Teen.com already has every Chaster excited with this statement: “And stay tuned—30 Days With Charice may be over, but we may not be done with Charice just yet!” Will Teen.com air another series about Charice?
