A musical Valentine with Charice

By Nickie Wang

Finding love is as important as establishing a career, but the first is the idea that Charice instantly dismissed even though her mother Racquel has already given her the green light. According to the teen prodigy, she might have matured physically but her heart remains a kid.

Currently on her iPod are songs of Air Supply, Leona Lewis, and Miley Cyrus. Most of them are love songs but Charice said they don’t have anything to do with her [romantic] life. She will turn 18 three months from now (she was born on May 10, 1992) that is why the young singer eagerly revealed that her mother already told her that if she wants to have a boyfriend, it is absolutely fine.

Charice to sing at Obama’s inauguration

By Nickie Wang

charice1Charice is the first Filipino artist to have performed on Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, and Good Morning America, and by far the only local talent who has been receiving such massive international exposure.

The sixteen-year-old belter is set to make another record by performing at the historic inauguration of US president-elect Barack Obama in Washington on January 20.

Racquel Pempengco, Charice’s mother, made this confirmation to the staff of ABS-CBN show “Wonder Mom” while they were taping an episode detailing the young singer’s worldwide fame.

Aside from Charice, two young students and a journalist from a Filipino-American newspaper are given the rare opportunity to witness the monumental event.

Nineteen-year-old college freshman Paul Michael Pilares Cruz and another student Anna Liwanag are invited to witness the swearing in of the 44th president of the United States.

Cruz and Liwanag, attended the Global Youth Leadership Conference when they were high school seniors in June 2007 in Washington and New York , making them eligible to be invited to inauguration.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” said Paul who has just received a $638 tuxedo from his grandfather. He’s going to wear the suit to the ball.

Meanwhile, Ted Reyes, editor of the Filipino Express, said he felt lucky to secure one press pass for the newspaper to attend the inauguration. According to Reyes, millions of people are fighting to have one of the 214,000 tickets available for the event, and he’s fortunate to secure one.

The landmark inauguration of the first African-American president-elect Barack Obama is expected to be watched by millions of viewers around the globe.
