Hitmaker David Foster and Dance Mogul Jim Beanz Team Up for Charice


Hit Man David Foster said that at age sixty, he only has a “very small and finite number” of things that he can still do and he wants to do them right – and one of these things is paving the way for his latest protégé, Charice, who has just collaborated with yet another hit maker, dance song genius Jim Beanz.

Foster is credited for launching the careers of music legends like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and also other famous names such as Josh Groban, Michael Buble.

A Channel News Asia Report stated, “Foster’s latest talent discovery, 18-year-old Filipino singing sensation Charice… is his current favourite project and he has been steadily grooming her to be the next superstar.”

“Now at 60, I only have a very finite number of CDs I can produce, artistes I can find, careers I can help, it’s a very small and finite number and I want to do it right up till the end,” Foster said.

Asked if he was surprised that his newest discovery is Asian, Foster said that he has said it for so many years that the next big talent will come from Asia. Foster said that Asians make up a third of the global population, which makes perfect sense.

Foster added, “Talent doesn’t know race, creed, colour, geography. Talent just is. And you just got to know that there’s a ton of talented people in every nook and cranny of the plane.”

Foster’s “Talent”

Channel News Asia asked Foster about how he got this knack for discovering international talents. Foster replied, saying he doesn’t have that ability at all.

“I do not have the talent to know if they have what it takes to an A-list star. Who could

have known that Celine would be such a tastemaker and change the face of Vegas and have this style about her? All I saw was a great teen, “Foster added.

However, Foster said he’s sure that each person has a hidden talent that should be discovered and nurtured.

Jim Beanz Intervenes

And Foster seems to really know how to nurture talent.

Charice, also known as GLEE’s Sunshine Corazon, recently recorded a new dance track under the wings of the legendary singer/songwriter/record producer Jim Beanz.jim beanz Hitmaker David Foster and Dance Mogul Jim Beanz Team Up for Charice

James David Washington, known in the international music industry as Jim Beanz, has collaborated with a flurry of big names in the business, creating hit after hit after hit.

Some of the artists the Beanz has worked with include Britney Spears, Craig David, Duran Duran, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira, Nelly Furtado, and P. Diddy.

It is expected that this song will be a major departure from Charice’s previous hit single “Pyramid”, as Jim Beanz’ musical style is best characterized as outright upbeat, well within the dance genre. With a potential monster hit, Charice would be able to reach out to wider demographic.

Just recently,it was reported that singer/songwriter Ne-Yo also expressed interest in collaborating with the young star.

Will Charice’s next dance single be as big as Craig David’s “Insomnia” or Britney’s “Womanizer”?

Let’s wait and see.

However, as far as Beanz’ Track Record goes, we will all be in for one heck of a ride!

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!
