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”?
