Described as the next big global star, eighteen year old Charice Pempengco, Filipino, is a singer with powerful vocals that cuts across age, race and all kinds of demographics to connect in a deeply rich way with millions who hear her voice.
“You are a force to be reckoned with. That voice comes from something bigger than yourself. You’re pulling it up out of some place deeper than your little body,” Oprah told Pempengco when she appeared two years ago on Oprah.
Charice was born and raised in the Philippines to a mom who herself is a singer. Her mom recognizing her vocal abilities began teaching her proper vocal techniques and entering her in music competitions across the Phillipines. But, the big break came when one of her die hard fans began posting her performances on YouTube. Thirteen(13) million hits later and with the US market noticing, Charice began receiving requests and has appeared and performed on Ellen DeGeneres Show, Oprah Winfrey, David Foster, Friends PBS and countless shows across America. Charice has also performed with Andrea Bocelli (“The Prayer”) in Tuscany and Celine Dion.
May of this year, Charice Pempengco took the #1 spot in the Dance/Club Billboard charts with her new single Pyramid from her new album Charice from 143/Reprise Records. She is a voice and star to be reckoned with indeed. Watch and listen on what the fuss is about.
