Charice says fans can expect to see more of her in Glee


Despite her jam-packed schedule, Charice was back in the country much to the delight of over 80,000 fans who attended the 1 @ 11 Aficionado anniversary concert held at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds last January 8. The international pop sensation was launched, along with Gary Valenciano, as one of the newest endorsers of the perfume company. The day also marked the birthday of her mother Racquel, whom the 18-year-old singer surprised with a red Louis Vuitton handbag. "Eto dala-dala ko. Ngayon lang niya binigay. Hindi ko hiniling. Siyempre natuwa ako kasi alam niyang yan yung paborito ko, yung mga bag," said Mommy Racquel, who was waiting backstage during the concert. Charice sang her hit song "Pyramid" after a lively duet with Gary V and capped off her performance with an original song written by David Foster. Before she left the stage, Charice told the audience, "Patuloy niyo po sana panuorin ang Glee. May five to six episodes pa na lalabas ako dun!" she shared excitedly.

After the Philippines, Charice is planning to go back to Japan to stage a concert. Her album is reportedly on its way towards reaching Platinum status there. Mommy Racquel also shared what her daughter wishes for in 2011. "Sa ngayon, happy na siya kasi siyempre katulad nung wish niya na health niya lang, wala sanang sakit sa ngayon na hectic yung sched niya, na walang mangyari sa kanyang karamdaman katulad nung lately na nangyayari sa kanya, sana yun ang maiwasan sa kanya," she said.

Mommy Raquel also admitted that Charice was very excited when Aficionado owner Joel Cruz contacted them about having her own perfume line. "Kasi siyempre wish yan ng lahat na magkaroon ng sariling pabango. Siyempre ung in-offer-an kami, sabi ko, 'lsquo;Gusto mo ba magkakaroon ka ng pabango, yung mga paborito mong pabango ilalagay na sa sarili mong pangalan?'rsquo; Sabi niya 'lsquo;Hay naku mommy excited ako diyan!'rsquo; Siyemre tuwang-tuwa siya kaya kita niyo nga yung reaction kung gaano siya katuwa kasi dream niya rin na magkaroon ng sarili niyang pangalan sa pabango," she explained.

Now that her daughter is of legal age, Mommy Racquel said that she has given Charice the freedom to make her own decisions about her career. "Siyempre binibgyan ko siya ng mga choices, kung piliin niya ito, ganito ang mangyayari. Kasi kaya naman pumapayag rin naman siya kasi hindi naman puwedeng ako lang ang may gusto, dapat pareho naming dalawa na gusto dahil ayoko ng may, 'lsquo;Mommy ikaw may kasalanan.'rsquo; Gusto ko yung gagawin niya yung gusto niya at gusto ko rin," she added.

This freedom extends even to Charice'rsquo;s choice of future boyfriends. "Sabi ko nga open na open ako, wala akong pakikialaman dahil 18 na si Charice. Gusto kong maranasan niya rin. Parang ako, nadaanan ko rin. Ayoko na kino-kontrol siya pagdating sa ganyan. Gusto ko maranasan niya. Siyempre yung gabay na lang at paalala, yun ang hindi mawawala sa kanya. Hindi ko aanuhin na gustohin mo yan pero sana kilalanin mo. Siyempre gabay lang. &
