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.

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:

UPDATE 10/20 – Video added on Charice’s YouTube Channel. Video embedded below. Only a few days after a Japanese TV show showed in advance Charice’s “Louder” music video, the official world premiere of “Louder” has arrived! No more squinting at the low quality copies uploaded on Youtube because you can now see the “Louder” music video in its full glory at EW.com. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOqF-WevfUw&feature=feedu Tim Cruz, the director of the video, previously announced the date of the world premiere on his Twitter account, after learning of the early debut in Japan:

From Entertainment Weekly:

charice 320 Louder Official MV World Premiere on Entertainment Weekly   Video Posted! Charice, the Oprah-approved, Glee-renowned singer with the teeny-tiny stature and the big big voice, takes a sassier tack on “Louder,” the second single from her upcoming sophomore album Infinity. Watch below as the Philippines-born 19-year-old explores her dancey-diva side in the clip, choreographed by Gil Duldulao, the man behind the moves in Jennifer Lopez’s “Waiting for Tonight,” Janet Jackson’s “Together Again,” and “Christina Aguilera’s “Drrrty” and “Genie in a Bottle,” among others. What do you think, readers — do you prefer Charice in saucy mode, or do you still think of her as the be-ribboned moppet who made sweet music with Celine Dion?

The official “Louder” music video has yet to be uploaded to Charice’s YouTube channel. Hopefully, her camp does this soon so that views resulting from the fans’ initial excitement/hysteria will be counted! The lyric video of “Louder” that was released five months ago have exactly 2,678,535 views as of this moment. For the official music video to be deemed successful, its views should definitely surpass 2.67 million, right? So Chasters, be ready to view and replay as soon as the video is up on youtube.com/charice. Many websites have already published articles about the “Louder” music video featuring the low quality copies on Youtube. Most of the reactions were very positive especially when it comes to Charice’s dancing talent. If the pairing of her amazing voice and dance skills could be further developed, Charice will definitely be stronger in the pop music field. Below are some reviews from different sites:

The Making of Charice’s “Louder” MV – Update: Final Video Undergoing Some Finishing Touches


It’s been almost a month since Charice wrapped up the shoot for her “Louder” music video, and the fans are eagerly awaiting its release. Her camp has been really mum about the exact date for the video premiere, and the only date we have now is sourced from a newspaper article in Doha.

According to The Peninsula, Come October 5, Charice’s album ‘Infinity’ will be released first in Japan, while the much anticipated music video of her dance hit ‘Louder’ will be released in two weeks time.”

The first part is true and that has happened already, but the second part about the music video is still not confirmed. So we shouldn’t get our hopes up yet since October 2011 is kind of an early date for a music video release that’s part of a 2012 album.

For now, let’s just revisit the days when Charice was preparing and shooting her “Louder” music video. Below are photos and tweets that we’ve compiled and arranged to bring you some sort of an “MTV Making the Video” feature, so you can get more of a feel on what Charice experienced during the whole process.

Oprah Uses Charice’s “Louder” for New Network Spot


It’s okay to celebrate. Oprah Winfrey’s new network, OWN, has started promoting its second season. And if you’re at all familiar with Oprah and what she does, you can understand why she picked Charice’s song, “Louder,” for the background music. They’ve trimmed it down to fit, but it still rocks! You’ve just gotta thank Oprah for loving Charice’s music as much as we do.

Upbeat, fast-paced and powerful, nothing else could help celebrate the joy, feeling, creativity, love, inspiration and sense of family imbued by Oprah’s work. Charice must be tickled at how well the song works with the Oprah Winfrey Network’s promo. Read the full story

Charice Invades Japan – Details on Her August 2011 Trip


Non-Chasters might think that Charice is only famous in the United States and in her native country, the Philippines. They might be surprised to find out that her debut album has gone platinum in Japan – and the people there still can’t get enough of her amazing talent and powerful voice.

In fact, that platinum award is just the beginning of Charice’s invasion of Japan’s music scene. She’s just starting to make her way up to the top of the charts and working on becoming a household name there. Yes, not everyone in Japan might have heard of Charice yet, but for those whose ears have listened to her sing, they’re all impressed.

IMG 27791.jpg.scaled500 300x2001 Charice Invades Japan   Details on Her August 2011 Trip

In the studio recording "Far as the Sky"

One TV producer, Kayuza Toda, became so captivated by her voice, that he sought her out and offered her a stint to record the theme song of a Japanese TV drama (Bull Doctor) that he’s producing. Good thing Charice accepted, as we now can enjoy the great song, “Far as the Sky” with Charice’s vocal power and heartfelt emotion.

The theme song shot up the charts into 4th place, and Warner Japan might have found this a great sign – so they brought in Charice to promote the song, and then announce the early release of her sophomore album in Japan. Here’s her jam-packed schedule:

August 9, 2011

Charice performed “Far as the Sky” live for the first time ever. Watch her performance and appearance in the Japanese show, “Sukkiri”, here. She also sang acapella 1 chorus of the song to cast of the Drama “Bull Doctor” during her visit  at their shooting location.

Here are some of the cast/actors’ comments about Charice from m.found.jp news: (English Translation by Japhzinn)

Makiko Esumi: I was just about to break into tears (Telling Satomi Ishihara). Without any instruments, just how amazing it is even in acappella..I was impressed.

Satomi Ishihara: In a moment, the mood/atmosphere has changed…being awed, it was amazing.

Kohinata Fumiyo: Had her autograph, I am very much impressed/touched.  YouTube is perfectly stored in my PC as a favorite. Being able to see Her live, such a great happiness.

Shida Mirai: Greatly impressed. There is great power, gave me great energy. I was really moved. Thank you very much.

Takuro Ohno: She really sings great. I think I want to be like that.

Sakura: Really unthinkable from such a petite body… As if we’ve been encouraged by a really powerful voice and a very beautiful, beautiful voice.

Charice’s Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011


This piece of news might surprise a lot of people since most artists based in America release their albums first there, and then when it’s successful, release it in other countries.

But remember that Charice is Asian, so that might have been a big factor in the way that she has become so famous in Japan – so famous that Warner Japan is building on this popularity and releasing her second album just a year after her debut.

sukkiri Charices Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

Charice in "Sukkiri!"

A deciding factor in her early Japan release might be the beautiful single, “Far as the Sky”, which is the theme song of the hit Japanese TV drama, “Bull Doctor”. Coupled with the popularity of the drama and Charice, her second album might just beat her debut’s platinum sales record.

The release date of Charice’s sophomore album was announced during her August 9 appearance on NTV’s morning show, “Freshen Up!” or “Sukkiri”. The early Japan release of her album is scheduled on October 5, 2011, though the album is still untitled to this date. Thee 11-track album is now available for pre-order at a price of ¥1980 (about $26). You can reserve and pay for your copy here.

825 Charices Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

The Platinum Debut Album of Charice (Japan Edition)

The tracks included in her second album are:

Far As The Sky
Louder
New World
Before It Explodes
Lost The Best Thing
One Day
Never Always
Bounce Back
Lighthouse
Lesson For Life
Living

It Up

Based on this article from HMV.com, this album is a special Japan-only album. If that’s true, then this is not actually the same as Charice’s sophomore album that will be released in early 2012. For sure, the singles that she released like “Louder”, “Lost the Best Thing”, and “Before It Explodes” will still be included in her 2nd US album, but could be accompanied by other songs.

It’s still not clear whether Charice’s sophomore album is already this early Japan edition, but it could be similar, maybe without the “Far as the Sky” song. It’s highly possible that Charice would really release her album first in Asia, as she said in this interview with ology.com:

logo music mid Charices Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

- Interview by Sharon Tharp

So what are you working on right now?

Actually it’s my day off right now, but this week I am going to fly to Japan to promote my album. And I am going to be there for a few days, finish my album that is coming out this fall, and then I am going to do an Asian tour.

Great. Do we have a date yet?

We don’t have a date yet, but it is definitely going to be the fall. It is going to come out in Asia first then here.

There’s not much info yet for her U.S. album. Charice has revealed two dates for her album release: Fall 2011 and Early 2012. To avoid major disappointment, just expect the her second album to drop in the first quarter of 2012 – and this is the most believable date since Charice said this in her latest interview at the Teen Choice Awards 2011.

Charice Dishes Out Details on “One Day” and “Louder” Music Videos


In an interview with HollywoodLife.com last June 14, Charice revealed exciting details about her upcoming music videos for “Louder” and “One Day”. Just a couple of weeks ago, news about the “Louder” music video stirred-up the web and gave Chasters something new to look forward to. And in this recent interview, Charice gives us more info like the estimated release dates for her videos and a few tidbits about her busy schedule.

HollywoodLife first asked Charice about the shooting date for her “Louder” music video, and she reveals that there’s no actual fixed date yet. That’s quite a bummer alright, but Charice did say that it’s possible to start working on “Louder” next month. She does have a good reason for not doing it right away – she’s really busy this June and she’ll be heading off to Singapore in a few weeks.

But the best part of the interview is when Charice announces that the “One Day” music video will be released sooner. With soon, I mean real soon, as she’s actually going back to L.A. on June 15 to rehearse the choreography for “One Day”, and will start shooting the video the day after that.

Charice is definitely busy this June, with Acuvue’s “One Day” video, her sophomore album preparation, plus the Lifesaver Gummies Flavor Vote promotion. HollywoodLife.com’s interview was actually done during the Lifesaver Gummies Campaign Party, which Charice hosted at the Bowlmor Lanes in New York City. Checkout videos from that event here.

Aside from the release dates of her videos, Charice also talked about the possible story for her “One Day” video. She said that she wants it to

be a surprise, but she relented a bit and revealed some details about the message of the video, it’s “how to make your dreams come true but at the same time, you don’t have to change anything, and just be yourself.” Charice also said that it’s “inspirational” for teenagers, as it also says something not just about dreams, but also about bullying.

Charice Reveals “Louder” Music Video is in the Works – Plus Details on Her New Album


With four singles already released, Charice’s sophomore album is generating a lot of buzz and excitement from her fans. But there’s something that could still heighten that anticipation plus make non-Chasters more interested – and that is a music video.

Music videos, especially viral ones, have helped make a lot of songs and albums more popular. Take Rebecca Black’s “Friday” for example. Without it’s video going viral, the song itself might not have sold a lot of copies and rose through the charts so much. A better example and comparison to “Louder” would be Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. It’s already a good song, but the music video made it into a phenomenon – it generated copycats, it invaded pop culture, it was shared and re-shared on social networking sites, and it got people’s interest, even non-Beyonce fans.

Last year’s “Pyramid”, which was the only song with a music video in Charice’s debut album, was wildly successful as well and even reached no. 1 on the Billboard dance chart. Since it’s already a great song, the music video can’t take credit for everything, but it certainly helps to bring more attention to Charice.

Hopefully this time, Charice will make two or more music videos for her second album. “One Day” will definitely have a music video since a contest was even put up to give fans a chance to appear in it. But this is sponsored by Acuvue and it’s still not clear if this will be a part of her album promotion. Yeah it’s wishful thinking, but another video for a yet unreleased single will be great, even if it’s just a simple one ala “Reset”. It looks like “Louder” will be this album’s “Pyramid”, so you’ll be glad to know that just a couple of days ago, Charice revealed in her Teen.com interview that “Louder” will be getting a music video.

Charice has released a few singles already and Teen.com asks her to talk about those: “I released “Louder” and “Lost The Best Thing. We’re gonna do the music video for “Louder” because I really love to dance and the song is really an inspirational song.” Chasters have long known that dancing is one of Charice’s favorite things to do, and now, she’s given the chance to show all over the world another one of her many talents.

Charice also talked about the meaning of the song for her: “I can totally dedicate that to all the haters out there. You know, like, I don’t need you. I don’t need no shoulder, you know? I’m gonna be a soldier. No one can bring me down. I’m just gonna do this and be brave. That’s why it’s called “Louder” because you being brave is so much louder than you being weak. It’s such an amazing song, such an inspirational song.”

Read the whole interview here, and see what Charice has to say about her being compared to Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. This is the second part of Charice’s latest interview with Teen.com. The first part is about her appearance on the season 2 finale of Glee and her possible return in Season 3. Read the complete part 1 here.

“Louder” getting a music video isn’t the only exciting tidbit that Charice revealed in the interview. She also dropped a hint about the release date of her much awaited album: “it’s gonna come out maybe around October or something like that.” This isn’t official yet and could possibly be pushed back if her team is looking hard for the best songs they could include in the album. Plus, some other articles and press releases have stated that the album will be released in early 2012, so for now, don’t get your hopes up too much for a 2011 release. But do pray that this happens, as a new Charice album will be the perfect Christmas gift for everyone.

Charice also confirms that the search for the perfect album title is still on, “We’re still thinking about it. I’m still working on some more songs right now to put on the album and still gonna work on the music video, but once we finish all that, we’re gonna think about the title and the release date.” Lots of things about her album may be unknown yet, but one thing’s for sure, Charice is giving all she’s got on getting this album done. She’s already collaborated with some amazing people like Nick Jonas and Bruno Mars and teases, “I can’t wait for my fans to see the back of the album. For sure, they’d be like, ‘Whoa, really? She worked with them?’ ”

Charice also let all her fans know on Twitter yesterday that she was at a photoshoot. Perhaps she’s shooting the cover for her next album. Or since it’s still a little too early till the album’s release date, maybe it’s a publicity shot for her next endorsement? Or a poster for her appearance at the next David Foster & Friends concert? We’ll be excited to find out what’s next!

Check out Charice at yesterday’s photoshoot, posted via twitpic.
She is looking very gorgeous here in this simple unedited webcam photo, don’t you think?
