For bringing honor to the country by her singing talent, Laguna native Charice Pempengco was given the chance to meet President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in person. She was scheduled to meet the President January 4, for a courtesy call at the Malacaņang Palace at 6:00 pm.
Charice became an Internet singing sensation when her fans posted her videos (in singing contests) in the video-sharing site Youtube.com. This paved the way for her to be known in Asia, in the United States, and even in Europe. She was invited to guest in Star King, a televised talent contest in Korea, and even got to meet some Korean stars such as Kim Jung-Eun of the Koreanovela Lovers in Paris, whom she was a fan of when it was shown in ABS-CBN.
PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) reported in July 2007 that she landed a recording contract with a Swedish recording label, Ten Songs Productions. Charice and Star Records managing director Annabelle Regalado-Borja traveled all the way to Stockholm, Sweden, last June 14 to July 21 to start the demo recordings. The young Filipina singer then recorded six songs of various genres to cater to the U.S. and U.K. markets.
But her biggest break so far was her appearance on the December 19 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Charice was personally invited by Ellen DeGeneres to perform in her show that was being taped in Los Angeles, California. The NBC show was aired in the East Coast from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. The American TV host-comedienne learned about Charice through her YouTube videos and described the young Filipina singer as "amazing."
In the American television show, Charice performed "And I Am Telling You" performed by Jennifer Hudson in the film Dream Girls and Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." She received two standing ovations from the audience while Ellen presented her with an iPod Touch to replace Charice's iPod, which was lost during her flight to the United States.
The 14-year old singer is also the newest addition to the pool of talents of Star Records. Charice was a finalist in Little Big Star, a children's singing contest hosted by Sarah Geronimo. She placed second in the show's Big Division (for 10-13 year old competitors), behind Sam Concepcion and Gian Barbarona.
At the rate she's going, this young Filipina diva is well on her way to becoming one of the biggest and brightest teen stars ready to captivate the international market. ABS-CBN and Star Records are truly proud to have Charice as a Kapamilya.
