Bamclusive: Charice


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 profound, 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 tell us, that audience is growing at a staggering pace. Fast forward to May 2010: Charice's US debut CD is scheduled to be released on 143/Reprise Records with her single, "Pyramid" featuring labelmate Iyaz (who recently spent four weeks at #1 with his international smash hit, "Replay"). "Pyramid" will be released to Top 40 radio in March with remixes already getting airplay at the clubs.

"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.

But let's begin at the beginning: Born and raised in the Philippines, Charice's talent was discovered at age 4 when her mother, also a singer, noticed her daughter's loud, rather 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 web-savvy fan began posting a series of Charice's performances on YouTube including appearances on the Filipino talent show "Little Big Star" and the popular South Korean talent show "Star King." She instantly became an authentic internet sensation attracting the attention of American TV shows. Appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show were followed by several performances on the Oprah Winfrey Show. "You are a force to be reckoned with. That voice comes from something bigger than yourself," raved Oprah.

Enter 15-time Grammy winning producer David Foster who invited Charice to perform on his David Foster and Friends PBS Show in Las Vegas alongside such star studded Foster produced talents as Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, and Josh Groban. When the "David Foster and Friends" show returned to the Mandalay Bay the following year, Charice received no less than six standing ovations. In between the two Vegas appearances, Charice went on to perform with Andrea Bocelli ("The Prayer") in Tuscany and Celine Dion at her Madison Square Garden show in New York City.

During Charice's most recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey, her heart stopping song "Note To God" written by multi-Grammy winning songwriter Diane Warren became an instant Top 10 hit on iTunes. Charice also had a featured role in the recent "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movie.

Now lets get to the vocals:

Chris Brown Fashion Week Photo's

WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Before ya think this is a bash blog let me set it straight that its not. Im sure ya seen this picture buzzing around the net right now wit alot of contoversy around it. In the pic is chris brown and Jean Paul Gaultier (makeup did that to his face not chris) Below im going to post the other pics from Fashion Week and shine some light on the story that somebody trying to dim *clears throat *(Sandra rose). Truth is Gaultier’s fashion show was heavily influenced by boxing.


 Sources say, Jean Paul Gaultier take on this present runway show included boxing gloves, bloodied models and a ring instead of a runway. The models who showcased turtlenecks, face masks, and leather also exchanged punches for the photographers, with Gaultier capping off the show. Mr Gaultier later on took photos with guests including Chris Brown not knowing that the pic would burn through the media like wildfire. I think that was a dope concept for a show actually. Now the pants I aint gone front i …
