Charice’s “Bodyguard Medley” Goes Viral

Charice’s “Bodyguard Medley” Goes Viral

On February 12th, a Chaster named “Amsterdam” re-uploaded a video on Youtube where Charice was singing the so-called Bodyguard Medley (I Have Nothing and I Will Always Love You) accompanied by Mr. David Foster on the piano.

Amsterdam’s video description:

No copyright infringement. This video belong to the right owner. Please visit the original uploader (CHAMU Chaster’s from Canada). Take note that Charice is crying because this is the last tour concert with her friends. This is only a fan made for Whitney Houston and Charice. Youtube link Whitney Houston [ RIP ] from 17 yo – Charice in tears , 2009 concert

Original Video from Chariceweekly:

Actually nothing unusual, Chasters have been uploading, re-uploading, editing videos of Charice, we’ve seen them all. But of course this was a very touching performance that made a big impact even to a long-time fan like me: Schoen’s Blog. Because I don’t think it’s easy to sing while trying to hold back her tears at the same time. So emotions just poured out of this very tiny body.

As Amsterdam was paying tribute to Whitney using this video on Youtube, one site caught it and featured it as “Female Cover Of The Week: 17-Year-Old “Charice Pempengco” From The Philippines Does Whitney Houston Tribute & She Did That!” Site link: World Star Hip Hop.

That was February 13th, so far so good, nothing special….yet…. until this:

Yes!! Mr. Perez Hilton featured that same video on his site on Feb. 14th and twitted it. And we know he has millions of followers right? The video went viral as “Charice’s Whitney Houston Tribute”.

Different online sites followed, here`s our complilation starting with Hollywood Life’s Charice Performs Epic Tribute To Whitney Houston In Concert and they even added an Update:

(UPDATE: It turns out this video is being inaccurately sent around the internet as a new tribute video, when it was actually filmed back in 2009. But it means so much more now, so I’ll let it slide.)

Kfox95.com featured an additional video where Charice performed “I Will Always Love You” in a Japanese show:

And of course Glee’s Wetpaint.com site can’t miss Charice too: Charice’s Stunning Tribute to Whitney Houston: Former Glee Guest Star’s Tearful Performance.

Since Chasters love to vote – there’s even a poll going on: Who Sang it Better? So Chasters if you want to vote, visit the site.

poll1 Charices Bodyguard Medley Goes Viral

Chasters have then started twitting and re-twitting the video and the rest is history. She was 17 years old that time way back in 2009. Judging by the positive reactions and comments to the video, it is very clear than people have been touched or amazed or even just enjoyed watching and listening to her.

Charice could really give justice to a Whitney Houston song. Of course, Chasters need not be convinced how talented she was when she was younger and still is at this stage where she learned how to use and control her voice to her advantage. Contrary to other negative twits about Charice using Whitney’s death to push her career now, just letting them know, inform yourself first. It’s not her fault at all if news are being written about her on this.

Behold Thy Name: Charice!

Behold Thy Name: Charice!

What do these people have in common with Charice?

Madonna, the Queen of Pop who is also a legendary icon. Shakira, the hip shaking Colombian songstress. Eminem, the popular and controversial rapper (not the colorful chocolate candy kiddos). Prince, said to be the rival of Michael Jackson during the glory days of heavy eyeliner (raccoon inspired make-up?) and gigantic/teased hair (Yup, it’s the 80′s). Usher, the famous R&B singer/mentor of Justin Bieber and last is the very famous Beyonce who just recently gave birth to a bouncing baby bonita named Blue Ivy.
aol 178x300 Behold Thy Name: Charice!
Aside from being famous celebrities and having their own unique talent, these group of people share one thing. They are all one hit wonders! Nah! Just Kidding. Obviously, they all have ONE name that they use as their identity in the world of entertainment. They are the same as our beloved Charice.

Recently AOL Music had a countdown on their website the TOP 20 artist who goes by their one name. Charice was at number 18. Others stars included were Selena, Jewel, Seal (whose real name by the way is Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel..pant! pant!), Rihanna, Adelle, Usher and more.

Actually there are more one name celebrities out there to be considered but the editors only picked the BEST OF THE BEST and Charice is the best!

For now she may be in 18th place on the list but ONE DAY (cue music and dancers) her name will reach FAR AS THE SKY and will be known to the NEW WORLD. Her music will be LOUDER than ever!

So congratulations Charice! You sure are LIVING IT UP!

Charice is the Hottest Girl

Charice is the Hottest Girl

“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!

j1411 155x300 Charice is the Hottest GirlPopular 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!

The Making of Charice’s “Louder” MV – Update: Final Video Undergoing Some Finishing Touches

The Making of Charice’s “Louder” MV – Update: Final Video Undergoing Some Finishing Touches

It’s been almost a month since Charice wrapped up the shoot for her “Louder” music video, and the fans are eagerly awaiting its release. Her camp has been really mum about the exact date for the video premiere, and the only date we have now is sourced from a newspaper article in Doha.

According to The Peninsula, Come October 5, Charice’s album ‘Infinity’ will be released first in Japan, while the much anticipated music video of her dance hit ‘Louder’ will be released in two weeks time.”

The first part is true and that has happened already, but the second part about the music video is still not confirmed. So we shouldn’t get our hopes up yet since October 2011 is kind of an early date for a music video release that’s part of a 2012 album.

For now, let’s just revisit the days when Charice was preparing and shooting her “Louder” music video. Below are photos and tweets that we’ve compiled and arranged to bring you some sort of an “MTV Making the Video” feature, so you can get more of a feel on what Charice experienced during the whole process.

Long Wait for Sunshine to End in April!

It has all been frustrating, tiring and oh so infuriating, but current indications point to April 19th when  Charice is back on “Glee”  in episode “Night of Neglect.” Then on April 26 ‘Glee’ is said to extend its timeslot to 90 minutes for the ‘Born This Way’ Episode. No reports on Charice being in that episode, but we can expect Charice to appear in several more episodes as Season 2 marches to a close

After a series of tweets from a credible source, it looked for a while like Sunshine Corazon would make her return to the show in Episode 17, titled “A Night of Neglect,” on March 22 – but that schedule has changed with a brief hiatus pushing the schedule back several weeks. Continue Reading
