Charice in Marie Claire Magazine Malaysia

Sporting an elegant and sophisticated look, Charice once again graces an international magazine and this time it’s Marie Claire Malaysia. The interview happened during the David and Friends Tour Concert just before the dreadful and unfortunate death of her father.

In the interview, Charice displayed her heart of gold by trying to help people in sharing their talent via Twitter or You Tube.

She also told that despite her success she tries her best to maintain a normal teenage life.What is a normal teenage life by the way? Simple! Shopping, going out with friends to watch a movie, playing in the arcade, texting, surfing the internet and dating. Speaking of dating, sorry guys that romantic activity has to take a back seat for now if it concerns Charice. You have to wait for a while. (Better yet, ask Mommy Raqz permission first but before you reach her you have to get through Carl..LOL!)

The article has wonderfully shown how Charice became more mature and confident in answering the questions. She is no longer the little girl with the Big Voice. She is now a lady with a VOICE TO CONQUER THE WORLD AND OUR HEARTS AS WELL!

Charice Sings Final Fantasy Theme Song “New World” Live for the 1st Time in Tokyo

Charice Sings Final Fantasy Theme Song “New World” Live for the 1st Time in Tokyo

Charice’s album launch yesterday in Tokyo was an event of many firsts for her. It was the first ever concert where every song she sang was from the album, “Infinity”. It was also the first time she performed with the Acuvue Dance Contest winners. And of course, it was at that event where the public first heard Charice singing “New World” live:

It’s been three weeks since the announcement that Charice will be singing the Final Fantasy XIII-2 theme song has been made. There was a lot of buzz from the gaming and music communities about this collaboration between an amazing singer and a legendary game franchise.

Charice follows in the footsteps of Leona Lewis who also lent her voice and song, “My Hands” for Final Fantasy XIII. Both of these artists also released the Final Fantasy theme song as part of their own albums. “New World” by Charice is the second track on her newly-released “Infinity” Japan album.

Watch the Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer below, which features Charice’s “New World” in the background:

The J-pop/RnB market is really hard to conquer as Japan has a very strong local music scene that’s bursting with talented artists. But Charice has made great progress in capturing the Japanese market. She’s making even more headway by teaming up with Japanese songwriters and producers, and for “New World”, it’s Koichi Tabo of famous J-pop group Superfly.

For Chaster gamers out there, the Final Fantasy XIII-2 game will be released on December 12, 2011, and Charice’s song will be included in all the U.S./Canada, Europe copies of the game, and in the Xbox 360 copies for Japan and Asia. For those in Japan and Asia who owns a Playstation 3, your game copy will include the Japanese song version by Mai Fukui.

Watch Charice and Mai Fukui’s interview below:

But if it’s just the song that you want, “New World” has already been released as a single and ringtone in Japan since late September. You can also listen to “New World” on “Inifinity” album, which you can purchase here.

Canada’s appreciation for talent is understandable, with the long list of music and screen stars that have emerged from the land of mounties and maple leaves. So when someone really special comes along, it’s not hard for the country to love her. Continue Reading
