Charice Pempengco has been lighting up the stage in her home country in the Philippines since she was only 4 years old. Described as a diva in the making, this little songstress began her career competing in talent shows belting out hits from her favorite American singers Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. But it wasn’t until a stranger posted her jaw-dropping tv performance on Youtube that Charice became an internet singing sensation and kind of a household name. Within just 3 months, Charice’s international popularity skyrocketed. Her videos, raked up 13 million hits online. And last November, Charice was invited to guest on Star King, one of Korea’s most popular television shows. Her spectacular performance brought down the house.
