Charice never fails to impress. As part of Glee’s Season 2, she has a spot number for the finale with the song “As Long As You’re There”, an original composition written for her. It airs this coming Tuesday, May 24 (Wednesday afternoon in Manila).
I hope she gets to be signed up for Season 3 as well because her Sunshine Corazon character elevated the musical component of the show to a whole new level.
Mabuhay ka, Charice! 😉
Last night, Charice’s first-ever TV concert titled “Home for Valentine’s” was shown on GMA-7. If you missed it, then here’s the chance to watch the whole thing again. The 90-minute special showcased our Pinoy pride at her best. She was just a world-class performer!
Charice’s guest performers were Ogie Alcasid, Michael V., Elmo Magalona and Rachelle Ann Go. But kudos goes to our pint-sized international superstar because she belted all the songs non-stop. One standing ovation just ain’t enough because she sang one difficult song after another with much aplomb and perfection. And boy, has she transformed to a very good entertainer, complete with spiels that carry her through like a real trouper.
Watch and be amazed!
Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Charice’s singing ability is nothing short (no pun intended) of amazing. When word got around that she will be joining the cast of Glee, the response was very positive and not only Filipinos eagerly awaited for her debut on the highly popular show. So when Season 2 started airing yesterday (Sept. 21 in the US) on Philippine cable TV, the whole country watched in awe as the pint-sized Filipina held her own against lead actress Lea Michele (playing Rachel Berry) in two highlights of the first episode. The first was when her character – Sunshine Corazon – ‘dueled’ with Rachel Berry inside the washroom as they sang the Lady Gaga/Beyonce hit “Telephone”, while the second saw her formally auditioning to the McKinley High Glee Club with the Beyonce song “Listen” from Dreamgirls.
I must admit getting goosebumps watching Charice hitting one money note after another. For those who missed it or want to watch again, here’s the video…

Knowing now that Sunshine Corazon’s character has been ‘intercepted’ by the Director of Vocal Adrenaline, it paves the way for more vocal drama between her and Rachel Berry in the weeks to come, especially when their singing competitions reach the regionals in New York. But that also means less of Charice in the next few episodes or so, not until the need to ignite the battle between New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline begins. I was half-hoping that Sunshine will eventually be wooed back to rejoin the lead cast in their school, but I don’t see that happening just yet.
To Charice, excellent job! You did not disappoint. More! More! More! 😉
Season 2 of Glee will start airing today (Sept. 21 in the US) at 4 PM (via satellite) with a primetime telecast at 9pm over Jack TV and ETC, and this makes fans in the Philippines the first in Asia to watch it fresh and up-to-date.
But before doing that, watch this promo video first. You can see all the leads plus Sunshine Corazon (or Charice if you will) sharing her thoughts on joining the cast.

Charice made a splash during the premiere party of Glee Season 2. She walked the red carpet together with all the cast members and was interviewed by the press along the way.
We all know by now that her character’s name is Sunshine Corazon and that she will thankfully play a Filipina exchange student who will become a ‘frienemy” of Rachel Berry (Lea Michele).
Watch out for Glee Season 2! It will premiere on the ETC Channel on September 22 – a day after the US airing.

I’m so hyped up for Season 2 of Glee! It’s going to be a big TV thing this fall and what’s more, our very own Charice will be in it! She will totally give Lea Michele a run for the money.
Season 2 starts September 21 in the US and hopefully (definitely, imo) simultaneous with the Philippines and the rest of Asia! 😉
