After her mindblowing performance on 12th May in her debut appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show showcasing some of the world’s most talented and smartest kids, Charice Pempengco made her second appearance on the show on 9th September and it was just only her, no one else. Watch preview.
It was like the short KBS documentary that I subbed but later removed by me after a copyright claim by Paan Media Holdings. This was more in-depth and sees them filming the old house that Charice lived in for a start. It then highlights on her difficult childhood from which she was bought up, the lack of money and how she joined numerous singing competitions just to make ends meet, eventually earning enough to buy a house for her family.
Video footage of the numerous performances that Charice had done over this past summer was shown and then a fitting finale as she sang “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion which was brilliant and consistent. There was a surprise at the end when Celine popped up on video praising her and then inviting Charice to her concert to sing a duet together which bought her to tears.
This has been a incredible journey. In the past year, Charice has gone to places which must have been unthinkable for her, performing in front of hundreds to thousands and receiving a standing ovation for each performance. The sky is the limit for Charice and I am curious to see how far she really can go.
