Charice - Q102's Jingle Ball Concert at the Susquehanna

Pempengco was born in Laguna, Philippines. Raised by a single mother, she helped support the family by entering singing contests at age seven, from town fiestas in various provinces to singing competitions on TV. She is said to have competed in almost a hundred such contests.

In 2005, Charice joined Little Big Star, a talent show in the Philippines loosely patterned after American Idol. Eliminated after her first performance, she was called back as a wildcard contender and eventually became one of the finalists. Although she was a consistent top scorer in the final rounds, she did not win the title in the finale and only placed third.

Charice made minor appearances on local television shows and commercials, but essentially fell off the radar after her stint at Little Big Star. It was not until 2007 that she gained worldwide recognition after an avid supporter under the username FalseVoice, started posting a series of her performance videos on YouTube. These videos received over 13 million hits.

Dubbed by Oprah Winfrey as the Most Talented Girl in the World,[ she released her first international studio album, Charice in 2010. The album entered the Billboard 200 at number-eight making Charice the first and only Asian singer in history to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart. In late 2010, she released an Extended play, titled Grown-Up Christmas List.

She released the single, “Pyramid”, which featured rapper, Iyaz. It became her most successful single to-date, charting within the top-40 in a number of countries, and debuting on The Oprah Winfrey Show where she sang live vocals. Crossing over to acting on television, she joined the cast of TV series Glee as Sunshine Corazon. She has released a new lead single from her upcoming international sophomore studio album, “Before It Explodes”, a song written by Bruno Mars.
