Charice was interviewed by Korina Sanchez on Rated K, a Sunday night magazine news show on the ABS-CBN network. This video, posted May 30, 2008, offers a nice overview of Charice’s life and career as well as an insightful interview.
And here is a six-part mini-series of Charice’s life produced for Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK), the longest running drama anthology on Philippine television. MMK (translated as Will You Ever Remember) programs are based on real-life stories.
Another little girl plays Charice as a young child, then she takes over and plays herself as the older Charice. She does a wonderful job of acting while recreating the most dramatic events of her life. Zsazsa Padilla portrays Raquel, Charice’s mother.
This hour-long presentation is very meaningful to Charice because she is extremely proud of her Filipino heritage and wants everyone in the Philippines to remember where she came from and how she got to where she is today.
Charice has come a long way from her humble beginnings—a life of poverty, malnutrition, and an absentee father who had abused her mother. Fortunately, she is blessed with a mother who has always believed in her and loves her dearly.

After this program aired, Charice was selected to sing MMK’s theme song, Maalaala Mo Kaya (Remember Me), a traditional Tagalog ballad.
But wait, there’s more! Here is a three-part interview with Charice’s mom, Raquel, on Wonder Mom, a Saturday morning parenting show in the Philippines. Raquel sacrificed everything for her two kids—Charice and her brother Carl—and with her love and guidance, Charice is well positioned to handle the fame and financial abundance that has already begun to come her way.

After Charice’s epic performance on Star King, a South Korean talent show, on October 13, 2007, the Koreans knew that Charice was destined for superstardom. Here is a documentary of Charice’s rise to stardom that was shot in early January 2008 and aired on February 27, 2008 on KBS, South Korea’s premier public broadcaster.
In tribute to Charcie’s beloved mother, Raquel, two Charice super-fans put together montages for Mother’s Day, 2009. Here is Loel Fortugalez’s video tribute:
And here is jimfan155′s slideshow tribute, using Charice’s rendition of Always You as a backdrop.

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.
