Charice Rocked Araneta Coliseum


“Manila, Manila. I keep coming back to Manila. Simply no place like Manila. Manila I’m coming home!”

Yes. That is a famous Philippine song and it’s very appropriate for Charice as she came back to her home country to bring joy to our hearts and ears as well! So people thought they’d go to a concert but end up coming home from a wild party!

As soon as Charice set foot at Ninoy Aquino International airport, there were only two new hot topics: her new short, dyed hair and her fresh tattoo! Reading the comments on Twitter, it was so unbelievable how they attacked her “literally”! It maybe true that Charice can’t please everyone but do they have to be so mean?

Charice sporting a very cool tattoo on her left arm bought the house down! Everyone was screaming happily. (Hopefully, Chasters throats are okay) The audience were also singing and dancing! (Even with left feet!!! LOL!)

Charice should have been nervous before going on stage at the Araneta Coliseum because of the pressure the press and the numerous Twitter (yes she was trending again) comments addressing her new look! She’s finding her style, experimenting on her own way, let her be. She’s still in the learning and developing phase of her life. Being true to herself is what makes a person happy and human. And we know that Charice indeed is very talented and whether some of her fans and detractors will like her style or not, her confidence alone is very amazing.

Let’s check a few highlights of the Araneta dome party

There was a very cute moment when Charice’s sang Lighthouse with her aunt.

She showed her amazing versatile voice, her dancing skills, she was comfortable moving on stage. That’s the new (and old) Charice!

In Love So Deep

Faithfully

Run The World

Non-Chasters who attended the concert were converted, (they just couldn’t deny her talent), something they’ve not seen yet on local artists. Chasters were even more surprised and amazed. This is not a DFF concert, it’s her solo concert: her own style, her own renditions, her interactions with the audience, everything was well-planned on stage.

There was an added bonus of course in the form of Charice’s Little Big Star pals namely Makisig, Ralph, Kyle, Gian and Sam Concepcion in which they sang “Moves Like Jagger”.

The most anticipated duet with Iyaz whom they renamed as “Ayas” now?

They witnessed a world-class talent! Sorry for those who missed this chance, better luck next time. It is indeed a different feeling experiencing her perform live, she’s one of a kind that will give you both goosebumps with that unique voice!

There’s no denying it, it was a phenomenal show from a phenomenal artist named Charice!

So what else has made this tour special? Her rockin’ band! Each one of them is so talented (not to mention good looking!) that the girls were screaming and cheering for them as well.

The Band with Heartbreak Survivor

A toast for Troy – kampaii! My goodness, every Chaster should watch this cool guy in action – he’s unbelievably talented!

Charice and KC Concepcion who would both judge the Philippine version of X-Factor.

Finale -Charice’s signature song from Whitney Houston, “I Will Always Love You, Pilipinas kong mahal, mga kababayan ko.”

For those who couldn’t make it, well you’ve missed witnessing the best live voice of the most talented girl in the world. Overall it was fun, she was a rocker, a balladeer, a dancer, hip hopper, showing her own style like no other musician out there can do right now. Charice is so versatile, incomparable in any sort of song genre! So her image change is almost minor but very fitting on this tour.

To our angel Charice you will always be tattooed in our hearts!

Special thanks to Manette153 for the great videos and Princess Serena.

Charice Back in the Studio with Songwriter/Music Producer JD Walker


Charice is still busy with creating the perfect follow-up to her hit self-titled debut album, “Charice”. The new singles that she released this year like “Louder” and “One Day” are perfect for the younger audience that she’s trying to attract to her music. But older fans are not left out because powerful songs like “Before It Explodes” and “Lost the Best Thing” still showcase the powerful voice that Charice has.

And the best is what we’ll get for sure because Charice has worked with topnotch songwriters and music producers for her second album. From Jim Beanz, Claude Kelly, to the Jackie Boyz, and now, JD Walker.

JD Walker is a hit songwriter famous for his work with Auburn and Iyaz for the Billboard Hot 100 song, “La La La”. He is a native of Los Angeles but also lived in the West Indies and Jamaica, which helped diversify his musical taste. Walker is also labeled as an urban-pop songwriter/producer, so his preference for fast dance beats is perfect for the sound that Charice is going for in her new album.

“30 Days With Charice” Episode 12: The Finale!


“30 Days With Charice” is a documentary by Emmy-award winning director Matthew Mills, cut into four-minute-episodes with new ones released every Wednesday and Friday on Teen.com.

Previous Episode

The eleventh episode took us from a concert in Allentown to another concert in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – but not before having a short side-trip to a radio station for a live interview. Charice is known for loving radio interviews because she “always has so much fun with the DJs”. KISS FM DJ Mike Miller looked like he had fun as well asking Charice about traveling all over the world and the kind of music that she does. The love for Charice didn’t stop in that radio booth that day because the audience at Hardware Bar was one amazing crowd. With them singing along and cheering, Charice easily got into the zone an delivered another exciting and memorable performance.

The Finale

Our calendars have already changed from 2010 to 2011 during the whole run of this incredible series. And the days of looking forward to every Wednesday and Friday are about to end, as this episode is already the series finale of “30 Days With Charice”.

Day 30 is aptly titled “The End of the Beginning”, which marks Charice’s transition from being a newbie in the music business to being an adolescent, perhaps? But for sure, those string of performances, interviews, and promotions have already baptized her into a world where everything is just going to get bigger than anything we’ve seen Charice do in the past twelve episodes. And what better thing to do on this day than feed some tigers! Every artist needs to take a break from being on the road and performing, and more so for Charice because, as Tommy Page, VP of Top 40 Reprise/Warner Bros. Records, said: “at the end of the day she’s still a kid” and “we try to make her feel fun and comfortable”. But being the born-performer that she is, her tiredness from travelling and touring goes away the moment that she starts singing and seeing all the people who’re watching.

For some, success and fame may bring negative traits to the surface like egotism and greed. But David Foster sees Charice differently, “Contrary to what you might think about what happens to people when they start getting success, I believe she’s somebody that will stay humble; and I believe she’s somebody that’ll keep singing whether there’s success or not.”

Both Iyaz and Marc Johnston, Charice’s manager, have seen something very special in her. Iyaz reveals how he’s become protective of her, who he considers as his little sister. Johnston even said how “there’s more talent in that girl than you can describe.” He also believes how film and television is going to be a big part of her music career, “it’s her destiny, I think.”

Charice describes her current stardom as something that should not be thought of surely. She takes it one step at a time, and is currently being thankful for the “achievements of my single and my album, that landed on Billboard at No. 8.” But there’s a fighter inside Charice, and she won’t settle for anything less if she can still do better, “It’s all good for me, but I’m just hoping for more.”

Being Asian can indeed be a hindrance for achieving international stardom and gaining a wide fan base in America, but Charice has already proven that it’s not impossible. And as a perfect ending to the series, Charice expresses how thankful she is for the support she’s got from the likes of Oprah, David Foster, Ellen, and of course, the Chasters all over the world. “Because of their love and support, I feel like they’re my family.”

As her thirty day press tour winds down, Charice takes time out for some fun at Six Flags where she feeds tigers with her brother, Carl. She’s still a kid, after all! Charice reflects back on the past month’s adventures and looks ahead to the promising future in store.

Charice Charades with Guest Star Iyaz


If you’ve ever played charades, you know how challenging the game can be. Gestures and poses take the place of verbal clues and you’ve got to be good enough for your audience to guess the meaning. Can Charice give Iyaz the right signals and vice versa? When both artists sang together in “Pyramid,” the harmony was nothing short of delicious. The signals were only green lights all the way to the end.

Last June, 2010, Charice and Iyaz went to the UK to promote her CD and the then upcoming release of “Pyramid” on September 20 (released throughout America in March). While there, both of them found plenty of opportunities to let people know they were in town. Read the full story
