Advanced Happy Birthday, Charice!
Charice will be celebrating her 18th birthday on May 10 as today's premier Filipino vocalist. Coming from humble beginnings in the province of Laguna, Philippines where as a youngster she entered multiple singing competitions to assist with their family's financial situation, Charice has performed all over the world under the wings of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and David Foster.
Her life story was featured by ABS-CBN's "Maalaala Mo Kaya" in a series of videos (sample below posted by youtube user, tiratira3):
Charice's new international single, "Pyramid" (now available on iTunes) featuring British Virgin Island based R&B/Reggae artist Iyaz (Keidran Jones). "Pyramid" has peaked at #4 in the US Billboard Charts. Her album is set to be released in May under Warner Music Group. Keep up the great work, Charice!
