Charice Bio

On first glance, Charice looks like any other teenager: pretty, petite and filled with non-stop energy. But when the sweet-faced 17-year old opens her mouth to sing – with a rich and soaring 10 decibel voice from every inch of her 5 feet 1 inch body – the audience quite literally gasps. And at 13 million hits and counting on YouTube, that audience is growing fast!


Back to the Beginning

Born and raised in the Philippines, Charice’s talent was discovered at age 4 when her mom, also a singer, noticed her daughter’s loud, enthusiastic version of Happy Birthday and decided to teach her proper vocal technique. By age 7 Charice was competing in local contests and belting out songs.


In 2007, a fan began posting a series of Charice’s performances on YouTube,. She instantly became an Internet sensation and got the attention of American TV shows. Charice went on to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Showand on Oprah, who said, "That voice comes from something bigger than yourself!”


Soon, 15-time Grammy-winning producer David Foster invited Charice to perform on his show in Las Vegas alongside Michael Bublé, Celine Dion and Josh Groban.


Charice has also had a featured role in the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. And in May 2010, her U.S. debut CD is scheduled to be released with her single Pyramid featuring Iyaz. “I’m so proud of this record and feel so lucky that I had the chance to work with some of the best songwriters and producers out there. Every note and every word is right from my heart,” says Charice.

Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
