Charice—Her Philippines Performances (2009)

charice-people-of-the-year-asia-2008Charice knocked the socks off of some of her country’s most powerful and influential people on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at the People of the Year 2008 Awards Night (celebrating People Asia magazine’s ninth anniversary) in the Grand Plaza Ballroom at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel. Charice, recognized as one of twelve People of the Year in Asia for 2008, is the youngest recipient in the award’s five-year history.

Charice performed three songs that evening: the Bodyguard medley of I Have Nothing and I Will Always Love YouListen, and I Will Survive. The Beyonce song Listen was rearranged for Charice by David Foster, who noted during their appearance on Good Morning America that Charice assisted with the rearranging. “She’s a musical genius,” Foster said. “She can rearrange a song so easily, as if she’s just picking a dress from the closet.”

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.



SiSe_fullcover_final.inddPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.

  1. Charlene Says:

    Thank you for supplying us great source of entertainment that is just one click away. Charice rendition of Michael’s songs on this blog are very impressive, once again showing her versatility. Wonders and miracles happen in many ways and one of them is YOU. I believe God tapped you to do good deeds for underdog people like Charice and now Susan Boyle. Your excellent writing ability articulating talents of a person is a big boost to their success. Keep it up and more power to you. God Bless!

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Charlene. I may not be able to sing but I’m glad I can write about those who do and who touch our hearts in the process.

  3. Virgil Says:

    Phil,

    Thanks for this compilation. You can be sure I’ll be back again and again.

  4. Phil Bolsta Says:

    I look forward to your visits, Virgil!

  5. mingaddiction2 Says:

    Phil

    I noticed that the Melawares videos with Charice were removed due to violation. If you wish to have the video back, you may use mine published in you tube and you can edit it too. The video is clear but not so steady. The audio is good.

    I always visit your site because of Charice. I kept on coming back to check what you have for Charice to date. Thank you for your wonderful writing.

  6. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thank you, mingaddiction2! Yes, I have some videos to replace and I appreciate finding new sources when my old ones expire.

    Again, thanks so much!

  7. mingcat Says:

    Hi Phil, I noted in BnK and Diva4Diva clippings, that Boy/Kris/Divas like ZsaZsa/Kuh/Pops, all of them seem to give high regard on Charice now. Unlike before, after losing the singing contest in ABS-CBN, the management simply disregarded her talent after that. Charice frequently guests on BnK now, but only when Charice started being noticed and given the accolade on Star King in South Korea. Thanks to FalseVoice, and to you too for carrying on in updating us, we appreciate it very much. Charice to us is not just a diva, or an icon, but overall an inspiration to all of us.

  8. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Well said, mingcat. Charice inspires those of us who she connects with through her authenticity and personality, not to mention her great talent!

  9. mingcat Says:

    Btw, Phil, may I ask? How did you happen to notice Charice and FalseVoice. Now that i know the story behind FalseVoice through you, I would also love to know your side of the story. Thanks!

  10. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Hi again, mingcat! I happened across some of Charice’s videos last December and was impressed with what I saw. The more I learned about her, the more impressed I became! I eventually contacted FalseVoice and he was gracious and kind enough to tell me Charice’s story.

  11. Perry Says:

    Hi phil.

    Awesome videos! Thanks again!

  12. Phil Bolsta Says:

    My pleasure, Perry!

  13. Mhiles Says:

    Phil you did another great job for CHARICE and thank you so much , for some fans of charice like me that didn’t have the chance to attend coz very far or in other country like me, it’s really big for us. Excited for her first US album. Can’t wait. God bless Charice and you Phil.

  14. Phil Bolsta Says:

    My pleasure, Mhiles! Glad you enjoyed Charice’s big concert!

  15. charlene Says:

    Thanks for the latest postings and letting us in this first solo concert of Charice as she begins her journey. She needs our support more than ever to get through the barriers that she will encounter as she travels to the world of super stardom. We all know that it’s a jungle out there. Thank you for these latest videos. We, charice fans who missed this concert due to geographic reason truly appreciate this very much. God Bless your kind heart Phil.

  16. Phil Bolsta Says:

    You’re very welcome, Charlene. As I noted in the post, the videos were taken by bdfangeles, whose YouTube page is:
