Singer-songwriter David Archuleta is back on the music scene with his forthcoming second studio album, ‘Christmas from the Heart’ featuring Charice.
The American Idol runner up, who had his concert here in the Philippines together with Idol winner David Cook later this year featured our very own Charice Pempengco on his carrier single ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’. The said Christmas album contains 13 songs including Joy to the World, Angels We Have Heard on High, O Come All Ye Faithful and lot more.
The album is set to be released on October 13th on all major music outlets nationwide.
Charice Pempengco will be holding her first major concert entitled “Charice: The Journey Begins” here in the country on June 27, 8PM at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City.
Her special guests include her idol, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and her former “Little Big Star” fellow candidates. Charice will sing her life’s songs, a collective musical journey that she’d gone through that resemble every part of her life. Songs that she rendered on talent searches she joined, songs she performed at Oprah and those from her local and international albums’ single.
Last month, Charice unleashed her talent and passionately rendered her first US international single “A Note to God” at Oprah that catapulted her on top of the charts, No. 2 in Amazon, Top 3 in iTunes and Top 40 on the Billboard.
This one will surely be another addition to her ever-growing international sensation. Being recognized here is something to be very important to note of. This concert will truly be part of her great journey to even greater heights of success! 😉
Justine Timberlake is one of the few music icons that’s been too elusive to dawn the country. However, the guys behind getting the two Davids of American Idol Season 7, David Cook and David Archuleta will shun everything else just to finally bring here Justin Timberlake Live in Manila.
The Fearless Production of Jomari Yllana and Ronald Singson has been getting Philippine fans pumped up everytime for a couple of concerts now. The first one’s with Pops Fernandez and Martin Nievera’s sort of ‘re-uniting concert‘ and the latest was the fusion of American Idol 7’s Cook and Archuleta.
The coming of Justin Timberlake’s first heard from Anjo Yllana’s Cool Center back in GMA-7’s show and fans just love surprises like these. Even Charice Pempengco said back in her third appearance with The Oprah Winfrey Show in performing her first US single ‘A Note To God’ that her next dream is to dance and sing with Justin Timberlake.
As of now, the production’s at the works and we’ll just wait for the date and the place. So better get ready cause tickets may just fly away in a second without even noticing it’s been there. 😉
Charice Pempengco takes on a third magnificently powerful appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show yesterday, the 18th of May. It’s no ordinary guesting but a huge launch on Charice’s first US single ‘A Note to God.’
Oprah’s such a powerful influence and icon but she was also gracious and awed enough to recognize and to celebrate Charice’s pursuit of her own stardom and dreams. David Foster, a legendary music producer himself who also mentored the towering Celine Dion and Whitney Houston gave a heart warming remark of seeing in Charice a talent like he first saw Celine when she’s 18.
Diane Warren, actually wrote the song ‘A Note To God’ and now getting it to line up along her hit makers “Because You Loved Me,”“Un-Break My Heart,” and “How Do I Live.” Diane and David talked about Charice singing this song early on. However, it did not just fit with her but she was captivated that Charice exceeded their expectations.
Charice really hit it powerfully, sang it beautifully but we can’t deny that she just let it flow from her heart. Tears have flown from her eyes and she’s just happy that she can call it her song. Oprah and the audience did share her tears of joy even before she went on finale. Moved and awed, they all just stood up, clapped and all of them just like a prayer, sang a note to God with her in their hearts.
It’s good to note too that Oprah did gave her an advice before they finished the interview. She said to Charice, ‘keep your feet on the ground even though you’re wearing better shoes.’ A very powerful advice too, isn’t it.
To our beloved Charice, as you keep your feet on the ground… keep your hands on reachin’ out and keep your eyes looking up as well… Congratulations! 😉
