Charice and Glee
No Filipino singer has reached what this little girl has reached though she is small. Yap, though she is a small girl she was able to reach the pinnacle top which Filipino divas and singers are dreaming of yet couldn’t reach it though they are tall and famous singers in the Philippines. Obviously, we all know what boost this little girl quickly on the pinnacle top; it is Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Celine Dion who are already on the pinnacle top lend a hand to pull her up on where they were (on the pinnacle top). Thus, her singing career skyrocketed quickly on where she is dreaming to head for, surpassing all well known Filipino singers in the Philippines who are having a hard time climbing the pyramid of success or onto the pinnacle top of the pyramid.
Yap, Charice’s “Pyramid” song have indeed put her on the pinnacle top of that pyramid and landed a part on the famous US TV show “Glee” for the show’s new season, as Sunshine Corazon.; A role that will be a “frenemies” with Rachel Berry, according to Charice. Rachel Berry which is played by the actress Lea Michele is one of the major character on the show “Glee”, thus her role sounds to be with utmost important on the show. Actually, one scene on the show was a spectacular competition of singing prowess between Sunshine Corazon (Charice Pempengco) and Rachel Berry (Lea Mitchele) singing Lady Gaga and Beyonce song “Telephone” in the washroom. The scene was really great and makes all Filipino proud of her.
I am looking forward to see her more as the “Glee” show progress.
By the way, in the Philippines, there are two copycat shows that mimic the show “Glee”, namely, the “idol” show of Ms. Sarah Geronimo and Ms. Regine Velasquez “Diva” show.
Ms. Regine velasquez’s “Diva” show which already ended, end with a not so bad ratings and music-storytelling, however, Ms. Sarah Geronimo’s “idol” show which is currently running on Philippine TV have really low ratings due to kind of not so good and kind of messy installment of music production numbers.
Ms. Regine Velasquez and Ms. Sarah Geronimo are the two top Filipina diva or famous Filipino singers in the Philippines but yet never reach what the little girl Charice Pempengco have reach though they are already a very visible and shining luminaries in the Philippine Entertainment industry.
