Charice Pempengco-The Little Big Star-Philippines is now a Little Big Star-World
Charice Pempengco will sing on the inauguration day of the newly elected US President Barack Obama? Do you know who this little girl is? She was just one of the finalists on Little Big Star, a talent show here in the Philippines and made herself now as still Little Big Star, but known all over the world. She’s the first Filipino singer and performer who sang with Celine Dion at Madison Square Gardens . Celine invited her to Madison Square when Charice was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show. She cried and Oprah cried too and can’t believe that she was invited to sing with Celine Dion, her idol and my idol too.
When she was still on the Little Big Star talent show, I was sad when she was eliminated on her first performance because I could tell that she had the voice, a voice from her soul when she sings but then, she was called again and made her way up to the finals. Again, I was not happy with the results because she was not the grand champion of the show.
Well, the show that she joined even if she didn’t make it to the finals was just the stepping stone for her singing career. And I am proud to say that she is from the Philippines . And to Charmaine Clarice Pempengco, Charice for short, may you continue to shine and always remember to put your head above your shoulders.
