Charice Continues Promotion of “Infinity” – To Release New “One Day” MV Japan Version


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.

We have no exact date yet for the zolpidem canada pharmacy 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.

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:

Charice Released “Infinity” in Japan Today with a Free Concert – Video Posted!


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.

Untitled2 Charice Released “Infinity” in Japan Today with a Free Concert   Video Posted!

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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_wUexKaTPI&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL 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? By Sofia Carrera, Charicemania.com

Tokyo Concert: The Dream Continues


MARCH 1, 2011 UPDATE: Short Report by Frantic Mom and Rude Boy Video (Audio only) This Tokyo Concert Experience report from Justcharrie includes an amazing gift of complete uninterrupted audio of the concert so that you can fill in all of the missing pieces AND super clear video of the first few songs. Enjoy!

Going For A Dream

It’s been days since I personally witnessed how Charice alone enthralled the people in the Land of the Rising Sun but here I am, yet to get over the happiness and pride it has brought me. Four months I had waited for this as it was four months ago when I first watched Charice in the David Foster & Friends in Tokyo and when Charice’s international solo concert tour had been announced. Four months of excitement and anticipation for this momentous and historical event in Cha’s zooming carreer. Read the full story

Zepp Tokyo Concert Experience and Videos


Drifting with Charice in Tokyo

FEB. 27 UPDATE: SUBTITLED CONCERT HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO ADDED So here we all are standing at the Narita International Airport, finally brought together by a special someone (who shall remain nameless for now) for a wild adventure in Tokyo to see our common idol, Charice. A contingent of dedicated chasters from four different countries coming together for Charice’s first international solo concert.

Before the concert:

Since I was going there already for the first ever solo concert of Charice internationally, I thought, why not watch for 2 nights? So I told Mooffin about it and she gladly offered to get me a ticket. Online? Failed! Closed. So she called and thank goodness, she could reserve a ticket. I just have to pick up my ticket on the 2nd night at the Zepp Tokyo booth and I was set! When I arrived at Narita airport, I had to look for Tintol and Artemis because their flight was earlier than mine. I haven’t seen any of them in person and they haven’t seen me too. (Oh well, who ever did anyway haha!) Later I found them, Tintol is famous, no one could miss her. So I waved and we hugged each other. There I learned that DrTp is coming too. That tricky lady! I kept asking her almost everyday if she’s coming and she never admitted it. Well Eve was surprised to meet her at the airport too. We both didn’t know LAfan was coming too (that Chaster Claus is a sneaky one too). Thanks to this guy again that we have a fast report here in Charicemania. He didn’t sleep until 5:00 am so the Chasters would have something to read about the Tokyo adventures. We are very grateful to LAfan and Artemis´ report after the second night, she didn’t sleep until 5:00 am too (I wonder who gave them a deadline lol). For those who are wondering, LAfan is not Filipino so if you comment in Tagalog to him, he wouldn’t understand it. Well after everyone else has arrived, there followed a lot of hugging and excitement and laughter at the meeting point… cameras began clicking! From all sides, all angles, all positions, inside the arrival area, outside the arrival area and you guessed it: at the bus station. I thought, this is so unbelievable, I’ve never had so many pictures taken in my whole life (and I`m not exaggerating here)! No escaping, I know I’m paranoid now. Later that night after dinner, DrTp and I had the most expensive coffee and the best cocktails we’ve ever had in our life (ok with that wonderful view of the Tokyo Bay waterfront plus the real reason why we were there, they had to be the best ever!) Sleep duration: 3 hours.

First Concert:

On the first concert night, I was so excited that I honestly forgot (can’t believe I’m admitting it!) about Arz! Yes he was with our group, DrTp, Tintol, me and Arz! With Eve and her group, we were supposed to meet at the train station before 5:30 when the train will leave for Zepp Tokyo venue. The rest who were not watching that first night went to explore the surrounding area. Oh well, we were late of course and Eve tried to call me, but the telephone I rented in Tokyo somehow failed me. I didn’t hear it. Later I found out she texted me and the rest like Arz and LAFan tried to call me. Well you can read all about this comedy in LAfan´s CNN report which fortunately has a happy ending. I apologize publicly for that Arz, but know what? DrTp and Tintol forgot you too! lol. Turns out it’s hard to keep track of people when there are so many. I learned later that SideburnerSol got left behind at the airport ticket counter on departure day at Narita while the rest of the American group happily went on their way to eat lunch… but that’s another story! lol Finally with all of us there including Arz and LAfan, we got in the front door of Zepp Tokyo as they called out our section number amongst the hundreds of eager fans waiting to get in. In the mad rush and confusion to get through the door, our group gets split in two with some of us going right and the rest turning left… oh well, that’s how the night goes! We found our spot near stage right. I couldn’t believe we got a nice spot but I was worried that the big speakers will blow up my ears. Later I found out that I had absolutely nothing to worry about the sound system… welcome to Japan… land of good sound systems (and more). Tintol and Justcharrie were ready to shoot the event! I couldn’t explain my excitement that night. Justcharrie had a small talk with a Japanese lady probably in her late 50′s. She told Justcharrie how she came to know Charice, through her husband (he has something to do w/ the Doraemon illustrations or something), I wish Justcharrie to correct me if I’m wrong here. To cut the story short, we invited her to the Meet and Greet and she was so shy and we thought she would cry any minute. Let me clear this first, the Meet and Greet was a last minute confirmation. We were waiting for the email since weeks and when we arrived in Tokyo, Eve opened her email and there it was! Lucky us! (But really, I think they kept us waiting to the last minute so we would not run up a long list of names.) Well, the show started and we were pushed! I thought, this was exactly what I was scared of in the first place. Because we were supposed to stand since seated tickets were sold out so fast. (Later I found out it’s quite normal for Japanese to push each other in the train! Packed like sardines lol) That moment, we shouted don’t push! I shouted to Arz, “Push them back!” (This was caught in Tintol’s videocam by the way. haha!) As DrTp would later tell me, this is not your territory…well Arzbayani is a big guy, he tried to push back, but those girls in their 20′s were quite experienced in pushing I guess. The usher who wanted to get Tintol’s video camera was standing there too, he was being pushed himself but didn’t say a word! I was wondering already why. So the concert went on, I wasn’t moving! I was just watching Charice (more like staring at her). I know I was like a stone! When everyone else around me were shouting and dancing or moving. I was like fixed or nailed there like a piece of wood. Arz tried to wake me up many times. I think they got worried if I was ok or not enjoying the show (sorry about that), because it was so hot in there and I felt like there was no air circulation or something. So there I was mouth wide open until later she did “To Love You More” and the spotlight was focused on our direction and Charice saw me and smiled and waved at me! (Sorry I have to tell this story many times lol) Then she pointed either at me or Tintol (she was beside me) and she moved (or swayed) to the other side. Then I was awake! She did “Reset” after that if I remember it right. I loved it! Sing along time. It’s quite difficult though, her key is difficult to reach. Ok at least Reset is not that high but I have to admit, the rap part? I could never memorize it! Charice was beyond words, she was awesome, amazing, and she owned the stage, the songs (yes, even though not all songs that night were her own songs, she definitely showed how to interpret them, her own way!) As I’ve read a lot of reports and news before (believe me when I say a lot, if not probably 99 % of the news about her) on how she sings live, even better than on videos. It’s true, I could now confirm it, she sings live way better and she sings like those were recorded songs! But she’s singing live not playback! Here’s the set list for the night with Charice putting together some excellent song mash-ups. Security was very tight so we’re happy that video has popped up with just a few songs missing and some are only partial songs. We’ll add any more videos that might pop up later.

. We all met outside the venue after the concert and there we saw a Japanese couple taking pictures of the white glove Charice wore for the Michael Jackson medley. She threw it in the audience and these were the lucky ones to get it. They were taking pictures of their prize on the concrete ledge outside, placing it on the Charice souvenir program with huge photo of Charice on the front cover. Well of course we said “hello” to congratulate them and she pointed to us with a one-word question “chasters?” because they didn’t speak English. We nodded. Then we thought they might like to meet Charice to autograph the glove and fortunately, Eve’s Japanese homestay daughter was with us and could invite them to the Meet and Greet because we couldn’t speak Japanese! They were so overwhelmed and bowed politely and agreed immediately to come again next day. They were so excited, they were Chasters! They were going to meet Charice! Well we took the train back to the hotel (no one got lost this time lol). DrTp, Tintol, Arz and I had late dinner (we had early dinner and late dinner!) Japanese food of course. 乾杯 (kampai) for Troy! Yes we had sake… Sleep duration: 3 hours.

Second Concert:

Since I’ve decided to watch the next night again, I think I might have influenced others too. To my surprise, DrTp, LAFan, Tintol, Justcharrie and Arz wanted to watch again. Eve would have joined us too but was having dinner with her Japanese daughter and 2 other former exchange students (they all joined us later for the Meet & Greet). Well it was too late to reserve concert tickets anymore so Mooffin gave Justcharrie my reservation number and some went early to Zepp Tokyo to fall in line at the ticket window. Falling in line and waiting. We waited so long outside, they let people in by ticket numbers, we ended up over 2400 something (we had “600″ tickets the night before). We thought we wouldn’t find a space anymore nearer to the stage. But thanks to LAfan again (I bow to you really) he led us to find the rest. And he did find them! After I suddenly heard him calling my name out loud, somehow it was unbelievable that the Japanese (as polite as they are) gave some space along the way….to the middle! There we were, we met the rest of the group and we enjoyed the whole concert. This time, I wasn’t a wood anymore. This second night, Charice did not sing All By Myself and Halo to conserve her voice for the last concert in Osaka 2 nights later. Still, what a great concert! I felt quite sad that there was no third concert night in Tokyo. I could imagine trying to get a ticket again. Sleep duration: 3 hours!

The Meet and Greet:

We were still on cloud 9 after the concert and we didn’t really want to go out. But those ushers kept shouting what we understood as “please proceed to the exits” or something like that. There we met SideburnerSol and he was devastated how one guard caught him taking videos and they deleted about 3 or 4 songs he recorded already. Oh well. It wasn’t meant to be. So we waited outside and went back again in the lobby until someone told us where to go. Actually, we all just followed Eve. We met Marc, then Charice and her security person

(we just call him that) arrived at the lobby. We met her Philippine Manager too. Charice saw Eve and hugged her then she saw me and she wanted to hug me too but security said we should start so we started. It was my turn first and Charice started talking to me, I asked first do you know me? She replied, yes of course “po”. Then she asked to my surprise, “Did they see you already?” (she meant about my picture) I had to laugh because I replied, “No, I will sue them!” (jokingly of course). I keep forgetting how good her memory is. Until someone shouted, here, picture! Oh I almost forgot why I was there! So I kept replying to Charice while trying to smile at the camera and not moving my mouth. Felt weird thinking about it later. I let her sign my concert ticket, she wrote my name and thank you, then next please. I met Troy, her keyboard player and musical director, then more pictures were taken. We shouted “We love you Charice!” In the end, Charice started singing Happy Birthday (we all joined her, although no one asked whose birthday it was). Later a Chaster who lives there (they joined us there in Tokyo) told me that it was supposedly a surprise to a Chaster in Japan. She asked where I live and I told her in Germany and she asked my name, I told her my real name. She asked, no your username. I couldn’t lie. To my surprise she suddenly got excited and asked her companion to take pictures, but she kept her camera in her bag (for a second I was glad). But then she insisted that she should take it out and she should take pictures with me. I could see her hesitance there. I got confused too until she told me, no worries, it’s only for me. She told me her username here in CM but sorry I forgot, better for me that you don’t know… ha ha!

Arigato Tokyo:

I love the Japanese audience. Generally very friendly folks. People came to line up, all ages (literally). I saw children, teenagers, middle aged adults, young people in cool outfits, grandmas/grandpas. Those oldies rocked! They were dancing and clapping their hands, swaying, arms in the air! Wow! Indeed, Charice has lots of charisma, she could overwhelm people regardless of age. She has songs for all audiences in Tokyo. I´ve witnessed the jampacked venue, Zepp Tokyo for two consecutive nights! I’ve met my online friends from Team Charicemania. I sincerely thank a special someone for this wonderful experience. When we parted, I said, this was not goodbye…but only the beginning. Until we meet again my friends…..
