Charice talks about the new direction she wants to take with her music.
After publicly admitting her sexual orientation, Charice revealed that there are changes in her music as well. In an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph
, Charice revealed that she wants to pursue Pop and R&B now. “Inspiration ko ngayon sina
Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, ‘yan ‘yung mga gusto ko,
as in pangarap ko talaga, mga idol. Gusto ko namang pumunta sa
Pop-R&B,” she remarked.
Charice further revealed that she might have been singing Celine Dion’s songs in the past, but she really looks up to Timberlake. “Mga idol ko sina Celine, siyempre sila ‘yung genre ko noon, pero my whole life, Timberlake talaga ako. So ‘yun ‘yung new music. Siguro may taste pa rin ng dating ‘Charice’ pero siyempre more on the new one,” she said.
Charice said she hopes that she would have the chance to collaborate with her idols. “Wala namang masamang mangarap at usually talagang pag ako may gusto ako, ita-try kong mag work hard para makuha ko ‘yun. Nothing is impossible so let’s just pray for that.”
Is she planning to hold a concert anytime soon to showcase her new style and tunes? “I would love to pero kung gagawin ko ‘yun, I want to do it na mega, super preparation,” she commented. The international singer relayed that she wants to showcase who she is as an artist now. “Kasi siyempre, ano to eh parang nag umpisa ulit ako ng career. At gusto kong pag lumabas ako sa kanilang lahat, gusto ko ‘yung tipong ‘yun talagang masasabi nilang, ‘Gusto ko ‘yung ngayon,’” she said.
Charice said she is enjoying the changes in her life and wants to thank her fans who stick with her no matter what. “Nagpapasalamat ako and sobrang thankful ko na kahit gaano kahirap ‘yung journey na talagang dinaanan ko, hindi sila nag give-up,” she remarked.
She’s overwhelmed that her fans have never failed to remind her that she is loved. “Itinuturing ko silang friend and family pero hindi ko sila kadugo. ‘Yung iba nga hindi pa nila ako name-meet, hindi pa nila ako nakakasama personally, pero hindi sila nag give up sa akin,” she shared.
