Charice is everywhere in the news again and she appeared in different TV shows in the Philippines after her “coming out” recently. One of those shows is ASAP. So here’s the duet with an incredibly talented and not to mention cool looking singer named “Bamboo”. He’s just equally amazing.
Francisco Gaudencio Lope Belardo Mañalac, popularly known as Bamboo Mañalac, is a Filipino musician and singer, who was known as the former vocalist of Filipino rock bands, Rivermaya and Bamboo, now performing as a solo artist. He is recognized as the “Prince of Rock”/”King of Rock” in the Philippines.-Source Wikipedia
The music Website Popdust.com has crowned Charice as the greatest Youtube star! Big thanks to all the Chasters around the globe who voted for Charice!!
“…she had to get through the legions of veteran Greyson Chance voters, who have a long track record of success in tourneys like these. Though Charice eventually triumphed over her younger rival, we don’t think there’s any hard feelings: Charice and Greyson have sung together, which in the pop world means they’re basically best friends.”

“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.
It was reported few months ago that Charice was collaborating with Cheesa Laureta, a former contestant in the US talent show “The Voice”. The new single “I’m Not Perfect, a power ballad R&B song featuring Charice, will be available on September 6, 2012. Continue Reading
Charice is back in a singing contest, not as contestant but as judge this time. She joins Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera and Pilita Corrales as judges in X-Factor Philippines. KC Concepcion hosts the show. X-Factor is a music competition franchise created by Simon Cowell in the United Kingdom. The winner will receive cash, other prizes and a recording contract. One of the most successful winners of the X-Factor (UK) is Leona Lewis.
Charice’s X-Factor taping
Charice mentioned in some of her old interviews that she joined about 100 singing contests before Oprah and Ellen Degeneres invited her to guest in their shows. She was mentored by famous songwriter David Foster and performed with singers such as Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. She also appeared in the musical hit TV series Glee and some TV shows in other countries. She released two international albums “Charice” and “Infinity” wherein the first album landed 8th on the Billboard 200 Chart. With these impressive achievements under her name, she is more than qualified to be a judge in X-Factor. We can expect Charice to share her honest opinions and experiences that she has had in her long singing career.
During the live auditions, Charice sang some songs to entertain the audience in between taping breaks.
Charice – Louder acapella
Watch the full episodes (No English Subtitles yet):
Charice filmed a comedy movie “Here Comes The Boom” last year and finally a trailer has been released. Are you excited to see her on the big screen?
Charice plays Malia Dela Cruz, a high school student. Kevin James plays Scott Voss, a biology teacher who tries to save the school’s music program by raising money through moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Salma Hayek and Henry Winkler also join James in this hilarious movie.
Charice can be seen in different scenes in the trailer: sitting in class, watching and cheering in a crowd, dancing, and playing the piano.
Here’s another version of the trailer:
This movie will be shown on October 12, 2012. Check this listing for the release date in your country.
“Do you ever wonder why? This music gets you high? It takes you on a ride. Feel it when our body starts to rock. Baby you can’t stop. And the music’s all you got. Come on now, this must be pop!!!”
Yup! That is the chorus of the song entitled “Pop” by 90′s boy bond N’Sync. Of course we’re not going to talk about them (Hotness alert!!! Justin Timberlake!!!) but we will focus on a more important matter and that is the (drum roll please) 11th Annual Popstar “Poptastic” Awards.
For those who doesn’t know, Popstar is an entertainment magazine on the internet. See website Popstaronline.com. It gives articles, photos, videos, contest and etc. on the latest entertainment news that teens and the young at heart absolutely love.

Special thanks to LDMovies for reminding us! By Princess Serena, Charicemania.com
What a surprise to see Iyaz’s Youtube video called I-Ventures in Manila during his visit to the Philippines. No matter where in the world he’s travelling around, he would surely find an “Adidas” store to shop.
Watch closely at 2:34, you might discover some famous Chasters in the audience!
Since the video’s title says Part 1, we’ll surely look forward to Part 2 or even 3?
So we thought the solo concert in Japan last year was great already but those who witnessed this Infinity concert in Tokyo this time are swearing, this is way better than her past concerts! Even Charice’s musical director and keyboardist Troy Laureta tweeted “Love Japan! Perhaps one of the best shows we’ve done on the Infinity Tour! Thank you, Tokyo! We love you!” It was indeed an amazing, exhilarating show, with schoolgirls in uniform, teenage boys and girls, couples in their 20s, office workers in their 30s, people in their 40s, 50s and 60s rocking it! To those who have doubted Charice losing her voice, sorry to disappoint you but her voice was as strong and even better than ever. She has topped herself, if that is even possible.
Charice has matured so much as an artist. Her present style and image is more than fitting for this concert tour and we really have to respect her for that. To those who have criticized her new look, watching her live may be the only way to erase all doubts. She was so confident and relaxed, something that can be attributed to her being comfortable in her own skin, as she admitted in interviews that she has been wanting this look for the longest time. The Japanese stylists even made her “Final Fantasy” inspired new look way better for her and yes, including the new tattoo! She looks fierce and sweet, tomboyish and feminine, edgy and soft, sexy and cute all at the same time. What else could you ask for?
Charice also sang a new song entitled “Everything”. The story behind this song is that music.jp and rekochoku.jp, two of the major music download sites for cellphones, called for song requests for Charice to cover. The majority requested Japanese songstress Misia’s “Everything”. So Charice ended up co-producing her own version of the song with new lyrics, different from that of Misia’s.
Charice’s “Everything” is now available via cellphone download only at rekochoku.jp and music.jp until June 30th. It will also be available for both PC and cellphone download on another major music download site, mora.jp from March 21st. There is still no word on its availability on Japan iTunes, nor has it been announced if it will be released worldwide.
So here’s a preview of the song as performed in Tokyo with special thanks to our ninja “Abilidades”:
Here’s the original version from Misia:

At the end of the show, Charice filmed the audience using her iPhone including herself with her back to the audience.
Another highlight was Troy! He sang “If I Ain’t Got You”, which was not sung in other countries in the Infinity tour thus far. He sounded really great, we should wait for this guy to have a concert on his own. We need a name for his fans too: Troyans from Troymania! (Ok I’m a fan really.)
A sad incident occurred after the concert though, when people were leaving Charice’s concert, the earthquake alarm went on and we heard it was a big one. We pray for the safety of Japan and all its people. Thank you Japanese Chasters, thank you Japanese audience!
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.
Click on the image to enlarge.
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!
“Ooohh, that’s hot!” Nah! We’re not talking about Paris Hilton but somebody else. Do you want to guess? It’s quite obvious right? It’s none other than (drum roll please), the brilliant, beautiful (inside and out), and has the voice that will open the heavens above making the angels sing their hearts out…It’s CHARICE!
Popular teen magazine J-14 had a poll asking their readers who is the Hottest Girl and they finally announced the results. The top place goes to our very own mega talented Charice who got 84%. It was a landslide victory! (Way to go Chasters!) Next is Justin Bieber’s better half Selena Gomez who accumulated 8%. In third position comes the guitar wielding, pop-country singer Taylor Swift garnering 3% and last is Demi Lovato who acquired 1% of the votes.
Charice was a surprise winner according to the magazine but to the world of Chasters she is not. We cannot deny the fact that Charice is the champion here because of her God given gift of singing. Her voice once you hear it simply amazes you along with her great personality as well.
So Congratulations to Charice and to those who feverishly voted for her here’s something for you. Treat your pointy finger to a massage and buy a new computer mouse. You deserve one! LOL!

Chasters rejoice! Warner Music Japan and Acuvue Japan has released the Japan version of Charice’s “One Day” music video! The video’s concept is similar to the original “One Day” video, showcasing young people pursuing their dreams. The dance moves are also similar, the only difference is Charice had colorful outfits in the first video- in this version she is wearing cool, edgy, black clothing which she always wears when she is styled by her Japanese stylists.

Only a few days after a Japanese TV show showed in advance Charice’s “Louder” music video, the official world premiere of “Louder” has arrived! No more squinting at the low quality copies uploaded on Youtube because you can now see the “Louder” music video in its full glory at EW.com.
Tim Cruz, the director of the video, previously announced the date of the world premiere on his Twitter account, after learning of the early debut in Japan:
From Entertainment Weekly:
Charice, the Oprah-approved, Glee-renowned singer with the teeny-tiny stature and the big big voice, takes a sassier tack on “Louder,” the second single from her upcoming sophomore album Infinity.
Watch below as the Philippines-born 19-year-old explores her dancey-diva side in the clip, choreographed by Gil Duldulao, the man behind the moves in Jennifer Lopez’s “Waiting for Tonight,” Janet Jackson’s “Together Again,” and “Christina Aguilera’s “Drrrty” and “Genie in a Bottle,” among others.
The official “Louder” music video has yet to be uploaded to Charice’s YouTube channel. Hopefully, her camp does this soon so that views resulting from the fans’ initial excitement/hysteria will be counted! The lyric video of “Louder” that was released five months ago have exactly 2,678,535 views as of this moment. For the official music video to be deemed successful, its views should definitely surpass 2.67 million, right? So Chasters, be ready to view and replay as soon as the video is up on youtube.com/charice.
Many websites have already published articles about the “Louder” music video featuring the low quality copies on Youtube. Most of the reactions were very positive especially when it comes to Charice’s dancing talent. If the pairing of her amazing voice and dance skills could be further developed, Charice will definitely be stronger in the pop music field. Below are some reviews from different sites:
