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.

Charice 2010 Year in Review: Most Memorable Concert


In keeping with our end-of-year impulse to pick through the best bits of 2010, we’ve drawn up a shortlist of 5 options for Charice’s Most Memorable Concert this year. The trouble, of course, is that because of her cris-crossing North America and the globe, the Filipino singing idol has given a large number of great performances.

Nevertheless, we’d like you to vote for the best of the five listed. Read the full story

Charice “Sings Like Angels”


Claudine Grant of Fox5 interviewed Charice, the 18 year old singing sensation who was discovered by Canadian music mogul, David Foster, and Oprah Winfrey, before her performance with David Foster and friends in Mandalay Bay on October 15, 2010. Ms. Grant questioned Charice about her career, her part on the hit show, Glee, and rumored Botox injection. On stage, Charice is a little girl with a commanding presence and booming voice. Off stage, Charice is a little girl who is sweet, charming and modest. Two very different personas but still the same Charice we have all come to love. Read the full story

David Foster: “Being Good is the Enemy of Being Great”


Hey Chasters! Thanks for all the nice comments. Honestly, being there in person for the event was really a privilege, so I truly felt an obligation to provide you guys as full of an account of actually being there in person with us from start to finish.

I want to make one point about this whole “DFF mistake” issue. Like in all my previous comments I’ve written before, I think the KEY thing to always take into account whenever we see or read anything on the t.v. or internet is CONTEXT. Without proper context, one quote or short video sequence can come off to appear completely differeng than what actually happened. That is why I felt the need to include as much detail as possible in the two reports to give you guys the ‘full picture’ of what went down vs. the short snippets here and there found elsewhere.

Charice: The Most Beautiful Girl in the World


We had witnessed her as “Sunshine Corazon”, dressed very casually, so soft-spoken, somewhat still shy, being so nice and respectful to her adoring, much older fans! Yet when she appeared on stage with Ne-Yo, she had undergone a transformation into Charice, the most beautiful girl in the world, with a FIERCE voice and attitude which exuded confidence and strength; same girl, yet two very different personas.” Read the full story
