Chasters rejoice! Warner Music Japan and Acuvue Japan has released the Japan version of Charice’s “One Day” music video! The video’s concept is similar to the original “One Day” video, showcasing young people pursuing their dreams. The dance moves are also similar, the only difference is Charice had colorful outfits in the first video- in this version she is wearing cool, edgy, black clothing which she always wears when she is styled by her Japanese stylists.

Charice’s second album, “Infinity”, is doing great in Japan. Just less than a day after its release, Infinity is now number one in the iTunes Pop Album chart and number four on the overall album chart. The album launch concert might have really helped, right?
In Japan’s main music chart, Oricon, Infinity is a new entry at no. 10. Hopefully, sales will continue to rise and earn Charice another gold award, just like with her debut album.
Album sales could rise more in the following days as Charice continues her promotional activities in Japan. Tomorrow, October 7, she will be doing an interview in the iconic Tokyo Tower (see this post for more details).
On the 8th, Charice is a guest on the radio show Cosmo Pops Best 10. Tune in at 3:00 p.m. to catch her live. This show is also broadcasted live from the Tokyo FM Midtown Studio in Roppongi, so it’s highly possible that you could catch a glimpse of Charice there.
From Oct. 11-13, Charice will be on JWAVE’s I A.M. radio show (see this post for more details).
On the 15th and the 22nd, “Music Fair” on Fuji TV will air two different episodes where Charice is a guest at 6:00 p.m. She has already filmed these episodes last October 4, so this guesting is not live. But being featured on this show for two consecutive weekly episodes is such a big deal.
On Oct. 19 and 20, Charice will be performing live with David Foster and Friends at the Tokyo International Forum Hall A. Even though she might just sing one song from her album during this concert, DFF is still a great venue for Charice to promote herself.
We have no exact date yet for the release of the Japan version of the “One Day” music video, but most likely it will be this October. The schedule released by Warner Music Japan and Acuvue for the dance contest winners reveals that the shoot for the MV will be sometime on October 6-8, 2011. So it’s possible for the video to be released within a week or two.
“One Day” dance contest winners who will appear in the new music video
Charice’s tie-in with Acuvue is really a great way to give more exposure to her new album, as it allows her to do events like the album launch concert in Shinjuku, an amateur dance contest/audition, and the new “One Day” music video. Below are photos of the recently concluded “One Day” Dance Contest:
Check back here again for more details on the new “One Day” MV Japan version.
Many Chasters have already pre-ordered their “Infinity” copies since August, and after more than a month of waiting, we can now all listen to Charice’s amazing new songs.
“Infinity” is currently number two in Amazon Japan’s RnB top seller chart, and it has been in the Amazon Japan overall Top 100 for 4 days now. In iTunes Japan, Infinity is #1 in the Pop category. But this doesn’t even reflect the real performance of Charice’s new album in Japan, as many other sites and record stores are selling it, so we’ll just have to wait and see a little bit longer if “Infinity” will hit gold or platinum sales.
There’s a great chance that “Infinity” will top the performance of Charice’s hit debut album, as the promotion for the sophomore album is bigger and better.
There are various interviews with a lot of Japanese shows and networks; there’s a tie-in with Acuvue that includes a dance contest and concert; the TV drama Bull Doctor reaches a large audience; and there’s also the upcoming David Foster and Friends Asia Tour with it’s first two stops in Tokyo.
Charice’s endorsement deal with Acuvue paved the way for a free album release concert in Tokyo today, October 5, held at the famous Shinjuku Station ALTA exit. Fans actually lined up and waited hours before the start of the concert. I was actually there and the energy of Japan Chasters was so amazing, it wasn’t dampened one bit by the rain and cold.
The organizers eventually handed out free raincoats so that umbrellas wouldn’t block the livestream camera, plus, they also gave out some packets that included flyers about DFF, Acuvue, Warner Japan and a free pen. Overall, the album launch concert was a success, even with the bad weather. You can watch Charice’s whole performance in the video below:
The album release concert was streamed live on the internet so that every single Chaster will have the chance to watch it. Charice sang 5 songs: first was “Louder”, then “One Day”, “New World”, “Far As the Sky”, and “Before It Explodes”. The winners of the Acuvue “One Day” dance audition/contest backed-up Charice during her high energy performance of “One Day”.
In the following days, we could expect more promotion from Charice for “Infinity”, such as the “One Day” Japanese version music video. So does Japan’s “Infinity” make you want to have Charice’s U.S./Global “Infinity” earlier than 2012? Or did it make the wait much more bearable now?
It’s been a day since Charice impressed the tweens, teens, and adults in Las Vegas with her amazing voice and strong stage presence. Reactions to the Aug. 23 End of Summer Block Party by KLUC are positive overall based on a lot of tweets.
Those who didn’t get the chance to attend are all busy searching, watching and downloading various videos and photos from the event, which are pouring in non-stop.
To make this job easier for you, we’ve compiled here in Charicemania the must-see photos and the must-watch videos, starting from the pre-concert moments, ’til Charice’s four-song performance.
Here’s a summary of what Charice did on August 23 for the whole KLUC End of Summer Block Party in Las Vegas:
1. Charice rehearsed on stage at the Henderson Pavillion.

Mark your calendars Chasters! Charice will be answering your questions live during Acuvue’s One Day Celebrity Chat on September 6, Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST. It’s not everyday that we can get to talk to our idols, so this is one heck of an opportunity.
* * * * * *
Even though Charice is very interactive with her fans compared to other artists and celebrities, there’s little chance of her answering all the questions that you’re dying to ask. So this Acuvue One Day Celebrity Chat is a really great chance to satisfy your curiosity.
Acuvue getting Charice as their brand spokesperson is such a great move – especially for her fans as this partnership gave way to a single, a music video for “One Day” and gave Charice lots of collaborations with Nick Jonas, Boy Rekless and Adam Blackstone. Plus, she gets to inspire and help a teen take one step closer to her dreams of becoming a recording artist.
Now, Acuvue makes it even better by giving fans a chance to chat with their celebrity idols. All you need to do is log on to Facebook, and if you still haven’t done this, like Acuvue’s official page. After liking, go to the Celebrity Chat page, and take note of the time and date for the chat schedule of the celebrity you want to talk to. Here are the complete dates:
You can also invite your friends to the many chat events, and ask as many questions you’d like to have a better chance of getting it on air. The footage of the whole live chat is recorded, so you can still catch Charice answering fan questions and chatting with Meaghan Martin on Acuvue’s UStream Channel, if you missed the live air date. Or check back to this article after Sept. 6 as we’ll surely post the video here.

There are more than 5000 miles separating Los Angeles and Tokyo which equals to a plane ride of half a day or 12 hours. Charice is jetting off to Japan right after her 2011 Teen Choice Awards stint (see her tweet here), so that she’ll be able to make it on time for her “Far as the Sky” live performance on August 9. I’m sure every Chaster out there loves how busy Charice is right now, right? Read the full story
Things are starting to pick up for Charice’s appearances this second half of 2011. From a multi-country concert tour, U.S. and international solo performances to tv show promotions – and now, she’ll be attending the 2011 Teen Choice Awards with the rest of Hollywood’s teen royalty.
Charice confirmed her appearance at the awards show with a simple yes through her Twitter account. We don’t really know if she would have revealed that piece of information if Chaster Invictus19 didn’t ask her directly, so a big thanks to Invictus19′s curiosity. Here is Charice’s tweet: Read the full story
It’s been exactly three months and ten days since the release of “One Day” as a song, and now, we can watch the music video in its full glory. I’ll sum up the video in three words: inspiring, fun, and so Chariffiic!
About three hours ago (as of this writing), Charice tweeted one of the best tweets ever. It couldn’t come at a better time, as Chasters all over the world were waiting with bated breath for something new from her. Her tweet was actually one word long (plus a hash tag and link) but it summed up perfectly what fans were feeling, and it’s so great to know that it’s what she’s feeling too. Here’s her tweet: Read the full story
Charice actually tweeted that she was feeling a little under the weather last July 18. But since she had to work, Charice just put her game face on and proceeded to work. You just gotta love Charice’s dedication when it comes to her music. Here’s her exact tweet: Read the full story
It was just last week (during the Lifesavers Gummies Campaign party in New York City) that Charice talked about her upcoming music videos. Though the “Louder” video is not yet on Charice’s soon to-do list, she revealed that Acuvue’s “One Day” will be getting a video much sooner. Charice said that she’ll be flying to Los Angeles the day after to rehearse for the choreography, and will start shooting the video after a couple of days. Read the full story
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.
