A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears


INFINITE POSSIBILITIES! These are the two words that come to mind when I think of Charice’s Message in her Infinity Album. This girl is living proof that dreams do come true no matter how impossible it seem to be. Last October 25,2011, another girl, a chaster named Kimmie had her dream come true as she had her surprise duet in front of the 12,000 audience in Araneta Coliseum, Manila.

Video uploaded by Bluemax This is her story: ONE MONTH before the concert, I posted something in my Facebook, Twitter, and Plurk account. ‘Dear Lord, I hope someone soponsors my ticket for the DFF Tour with Charice on Oct. 25, 2011, I do hope this wish comes true”. I was just kidding, then suddenly, “Sisa”, a gorgeous chaster in and out whom I consider as my elder sis said she will take care of it. Woah, I never expected that she would sponsor me. She was really nice to me and I was so thankful about it. Two days after, the money to be used to buy the ticket was sent to our house. A week and a half later, I lost the ticket due to my carelessness. I remember putting it under the bed but when I tried looking for it, I really can’t find it. My guess is that our maid might have thrown out the ticket when she cleaned my room. Then one day before the concert, Ate Tintol sent me a private message on Facebook. I was at school that time, that was around 7pm. She told me to send her a text message if I don’t have a ticket yet. She still has extra ticket and she said she will give me one. OMC, i was so happy to know that because I really thought I won’t be able to watch the concert anymore. THE MAIN EVENT. I arrived late at the Chaster Concert gathering where I was supposed to sing due to so much traffic. I first look for Ate Tintol to ask for my ticket. She asked me to choose between Upperbox A or B. She said that more chasters will be seated in Upperbox B than A, but UpperboxA is nearer the stage. So, I chose the ticket for Upperbox A. The concert started at around 8pm. I felt sad because I was alone in my seat, away from the group of chasters I’ve met earlier. I just kept on screaming and singing along with the performers as if nothing matters. A DREAM COME TRUE. A lot of people has been asking me if what had happened at the concert was scripted. I told them that everything was unexpected! When the concert started, I was screaming non-stop since the other chasters are far from me and I dont have anyone to talk to. I was so excited because I really want to see charice. At the mid-part of the show, there was one point when David Foster ask the audience who wanted to sing in the stage. He first picked out audiences at the VIP section. Later on, he then asked if anyone staying a little bit farther the stage also wants to sing. I started screaming my lungs out and raising my hand then, the people around began pointing at me. I was shocked when the spotlight was suddenly focused to us. David F. said i need to be at the stage in 20 seconds, Geeeez, that’s close to impossible since the section where I was seated was kinda far from the stage. The marshalls assisted me to the backstage. I thought I was gonna sing immediately. I got a little worried when I found out that I’m not going to sing yet. I thought they already forgot about me. While waiting at the backstage, the staff and the other performers are almost at my reach. I shook hands with them and kept on smiling to all. Then the moment I have long been waiting for came, I heard Charice singing on the stage. She was singing POWER OF LOVE, OMC. I couldn’t stop myself from crying that time. I felt a little shy because the people around were already looking at me. The moment charice came down the stage, she hugged me and signed the souvenir i brought from the Pre-Concert Chasters Gathering. The concert continued and when it was nearing it’s end, the staff told me that they will try their best to still be able to put me on the show and let me sing. Charice approached me and asked me if I’m just ok. She was trying to comfort me coz she might have felt that I was feeling a little down. She said sorry because David might have forgotten me coz he was really tired that time. I told her it’s ok, there’s no need to say sorry coz seeing her is really more than enough to complete my night. But deep inside, I did feel a little sad coz I really thought that Sir David Foster already forgot me. Then, one of the musicians approached me and asked me what song do I know and if I have ever hold a mic. They never thought I was really singing. I told them I know the song “I will Survive”, they said they weren’t ready for that. They asked if I know “My heart will go on”, I told them I don’t know the complete piece. How about Because you loved me? I said YES! I waited a little more, then when I heard that the performers were already singing Earth Song, I knew that the concert was about to end, I thought again that I might not be able to perform anymore. Then I suddenly remembered that I left my bag at my seat in Upperbox A. Good thing the staffs are really kind enough to take care of it. They were able to get it back from my seat. I heard Araneta Colisum roaring when David Foster played his major hits and the audience were singing along. Then after that, David called me up the stage. OMC to the highest level, I was getting so nervous. Then I saw Charice looking at me as if she was saying good luck. I was still so nervous but I know I need to overcome this feeling so I started singing. I shouted CHASTERS in the middle of the song coz i feel that I represent every Chaster there. Suddenly, the most unexpected happened, Charice came up the stage. That is something I really never expected coz the last time I saw her, she was just at the backstage looking at me and giving me the courage to go on just by looking at me. I had the most unforgettable duet of my life. I just noticed myself crying while singing with her, THANK GOD we were still able to finish the song. Charice was exceptionally nice as well as David. They continued cheering me even when I’m going down the stage.

cha and kim 2 A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears

I received a BIG hug from Charice. After that, Ate Tintol sent me a text message, she said, “I guess losing your ticket was a blessing in disguise. You were awesome at the stage. The Chasters are proud of you! “. icon smile A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears ~end~ Note: For everyone’s information, the sponsored ticket (which was donated by a Chaster Clause the last minute to another chaster) was an Upperbox B ticket. However, a friend of mine who was supposed to be on the Upperbox A seat had an emergency and was not able to go to the concert the last minute so I gave Kimmie a choice. Upperbox A or B? You guys know the rest of the story. As Chaster ImKarl puts it in his blog about the event:

“Life is too ironic to fully understand. It takes sadness to know what happiness is. Thinking that kimmie was upset and sad days before the concert because of her lost ticket but she was able to stand and sing in the middle of a huge crowd singing a heart-warming song with her ultimate idol for life. A magical night. To describe it NO WORDS, JUST TEARS”

Charice Off to a Great Start in Tokyo for the 2011 David Foster and Friends Asia Tour


Based on the audience turn-out in the two-day concert in Tokyo, it will be another successful run for the David Foster and Friends Asian Tour this 2011. Last year’s concert series also attracted huge crowds in key Asian cities, though Japan stands out by having two sold-out concerts in two straight days.

And this year, the trend continues with the successful October 19 and 20 DFF concerts in Tokyo. Plus, two other similar things happened: 1) A solo Charice concert was announced for the following year, and 2) Charice emerged as the main star of the show.

photo Charice Off to a Great Start in Tokyo for the 2011 David Foster and Friends Asia Tour
Tickets for Charice’s 2012 solo concert in Japan are selling like hotcakes

Yes, you’ve read that right. Charice will have her own concert next year in Japan. It’s scheduled on March 14, 2012 at the Shibuya Koukaido. Advance tickets were also sold during the DFF concert and a lot of people already bought theirs. Could this Japan concert possibly be a part of a multi-country Charice tour in 2012? It’s not impossible, but as of now, we only know that this is just a one-off concert in Japan.

Aside from David Foster (who was a part of the band in almost all of the performances), Charice had the most number of songs in the concert. She sang six songs, which included her own “Louder” and vocally challenging songs like, “Stand Up For Love”, “Unbreak My Heart”, “Power Of Love”, “Earth Song”, and “The Prayer” (which she sang with Michael Bolton).

Enjoy watching all of Charice’s performances below, big thanks to LantaoIsland for the videos:

“Louder

“Stand Up for Love”

“Unbreak My Heart”

“Power of Love”

“The Prayer”

“Earth Song”

NHK’s “SONGS” to Air a Special Charice w/ David Foster Episode on August 31, 2011


UPDATE: NHK ‘SONGS’ VIDEO PLAYLIST ADDED

Charice and David Foster are featured in this popular Japanese program where they introduce a “great selection of songs just for you!” We then follow Charice and David as they take us to the Robert Mondavi Winery for their fundraiser show in the Napa Valley.

Here are the performance videos for 3 songs: To Love You More, Bodyguard Medley, and I Will Survive. PLUS the complete 30-minute show (translation needed! sorry, but you’ll get the idea…)


.

* * * * * *

We previously reported that Charice will be featured on NHK’s SONGS show as a part of her promotion for “As Far as the Sky”. But based on some tweets, it appears that this “SONGS” episode will be more than that.

Remember the David Foster and Friends Summer Concert in Napa Valley last July 16, 2011? If you were there or read this article, you’ll know that there was a TV crew following her and David Foster around.

After the concert, it was confirmed that the TV crew was sent by NHK Japan to film a segment for their show, “SONGS”. Below is the tweet that said this:

tweet4 NHKs SONGS to Air a Special Charice w/ David Foster Episode on August 31, 2011

Based on the official website of “SONGS”, we now know that the Aug. 31 episode will be about Charice and her music, plus David Foster’s involvement. The episode title is “Charice with David Foster”, so that means it will be more centered on Charice than David Foster. Catch Charice on “SONGS” at 10:55 p.m., Aug. 31, 2011 on NHK. Below are the promo image for the episode and the video preview:

This is the second appearance of Charice on “SONGS” this year. Her first one was in early 2011, where she sang four songs live. Below is a video of her “Pyramid” performance. You can watch her three other performances in this YouTube playlist.

Charice on the Cover of Indonesia’s “Go Girl!” Magazine September 2011 Issue


In just a month, Charice will be invading Jakarta, Indonesia together with David Foster and Friends for a music-filled evening that few will ever forget. As proof of Charice’s wide fanbase all over the world, an Indonesian magazine used her as the cover for their September 2011 issue.

“Go Girl!” is a teen magazine in Indonesia that was put up in 2005. Its main readers are females in the age bracket of 15-23 years old. The magazine is known for using international stars in its cover, and it uses a mix of English and Indonesian as its articles’ language.

Go Girl’s September 2011 issue is titled, “Eastern Issue” – it’s all about Asia, from entertainment, heartthrobs, Korean artists and shows, to travel, food, and Chinatown. With Charice as the most famous Asian international star right now, she really deserves to be in the cover of a magazine edition that’s focused on Asian show business.

Cover 79 Charice on the Cover of Indonesias Go Girl! Magazine September 2011 Issue

If you’re in Indonesia, the magazine is already available in newsstands for just 25,000 RP. As of now, we can’t find the specific article about Charice, so if anyone has a copy of this, please scan and share it online.

Below are some teasers for the other articles inside this issue:

Charice with David Foster and Friends Will Go on an Asian Tour this Oct. & Nov. 2011


dates Charice with David Foster and Friends Will Go on an Asian Tour this Oct. & Nov. 2011

The David Foster and Friends Summer Concert in Napa Valley just happened last July 16. You may or may not have attended that certain event, but for sure, you want to hear more of Charice’s live-singing, right?

We previously reported that Charice will be singing in two DFF concerts in Las Vegas this 2011 – one on October 1 for the third Hitman Concert in Mandalay Bay, and the second one on November 25 for the Thanksgiving Concert of David Foster and Friends, also in Mandalay Bay. Read the full story

Charice to Perform at Multiple “David Foster and Friends” Concerts in Second Half of 2011


[Nov. 27, 2011 UPDATE: PHOTO GALLERY AND HIGH RESOLUTION PERFORMANCE VIDEOS ADDED]

The David Foster and Friends concert series is already a certified hit with a successful run during it’s Asia Tour last year and a highly-requested return to the Mandalay Bay stage in Las Vegas. The main reason why these concerts are all sold-out is, of course, David Foster’s iconic songs – which have been the soundtrack for a lot of moments in the lives of concert-goers.

Aside from the “David Foster” part, another crowd-drawing aspect of these concerts is the “Friends” part. From legendary performers like Peter Cetera, Donna Summer, Earth, Wind & Fire, Josh Groban, and Chaka Khan, you could say that David Foster has lots of really famous friends. Their star power do help in getting people to the concert, but their most important contribution is how they give life to David Foster’s musical masterpieces.

One excellent example of an artist who adds new dimensions to existing songs is Charice. Her powerful voice and natural talent in performing has captured the admiration of people across different continents. In almost every David Foster and Friends concert she performed in, Charice always receives a standing ovation.

And this second half of 2011, Charice will again amaze and touch the hearts of audiences in three upcoming David Foster and Friends concerts.

The first one is just a month away – The David Foster and Friends Summer Concert in Napa Valley. It’s a part of the celebration of Napa’s Festival del Sole, and it’s also a fundraising event for the David Foster Foundation.
