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.

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
