Charice has been singing since she was four years old! Here she is in the Bulilit Star Quest competition she won as a wee sprout of ten! A clip from this performance, dated September 21, 2002, was shown on Rated K, a Sunday night magazine news show on the ABS-CBN network,when host Korina Sanchez interviewed Charice on or about May 30, 2008.
Warning: Be prepared to overdose on cuteness!
TO LOVE YOU MORE
Here is Charice singing the same song in the final round.
And here is the announcement that Charice is the contest winner! How adorable can one girl be?
For the sake of contrast, let’s fast-forward six years and listen to Charice singing the same song seven years later on November 13, 2008 on UKG (Umagang Kay Ganda, which roughly translates to “Good Morning”), a morning variety show in the Philippines.
Here is Charice at age twelve on June 26, 2004, singing with two other finalists in the Bulilit Popstar contest, in which competitors have to imitate their idol. Charice sang Whitney Houston songs and was the eventual runner-up. Singing along with the three girls are three adult Fillipino pop stars. Charice is paired with Kyla, known as the R&B Princess of the Philippines.
Here is another 2004 Bulilit Popstar performance in which Charice is joined by four other young contestants in a Black Eyed Peas song. One of the performers, Catherine Loria, was later named the Grand Prize winner in the 2008 World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Hollywood.
Charice sang this duet from the movie Cinderella in a guest appearance on the second season of Search for the Star in a Million. Her duet partner is Kris Lawrence, the competition’s winner. That contest ended on January 22, 2006, so this performance has to be before that date.
A DREAM IS A WISH THAT YOUR HEART MAKES
Charice sang snippets from a few songs on the April 24, 2006 edition of Home Boy, a morning talk show hosted by Boy Abunda on ABS-CBN. Singing with her is Sam Concepcion, who won the Little Big Star competition in which Charice placed third. That contest ended on April 8, 2006.
Here is Charice on August 24, 2006 singing a Sharon Cuneta medley with fellow singers Michelle Ayalde and Karel Marquez on Wowowee, a noontime variety and game show broadcast by ABS-CBN. Incidentally, the Tagalog word “kapamilya” means “folks.” It’s a tagline used by ABS-CBN, which calls its viewers “kapamilya” to suggest that they are part of their family.
THANKS TO YOU
Here is Charice singing a Bonnie Tyler hit with her mother, Raquel, at an outdoor party in September 2007. The video was taken by Charice’s friend, Neve, during a vacation in the Philippine province of Samar.
TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART
Here is Charice singing in Batangas at a friend’s baptism reception in November 2007, courtesy of Charice’s friend, Neve. It’s fun to see Charice cut loose and add some signature moves to her performance. And in case you hadn’t noticed, the girl has some serious pipes on her!
As a bonus, here are some videos of Charice singing at he Dayrit house in Dasma Village, a gated community in Manila, on February 19, 2008, when she was still fifteen years old.
ALL FIVE SONGS
Here are individual videos for each of the five songs:

THROUGH GOD’S EYES PDF SAMPLER
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 on Amazon.
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?
• 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.
