Charlie Puth says the Philippines is special to him.
Before he prepared for his sold-out concert at the KIA Theater last August 14, Charlie Puth who is known for his songs “Marvin Gaye” and “One Call Away” made headlines after asking Liza Soberano on Twitter if she’s going to his concert.

He then shared with ABS-CBN News reporter MJ Felipe that he really didn’t know who Liza was and he just only saw her when he caught her movie “Everyday I Love You” on his TV at the hotel.
“I was relaxing in my hotel room and there was this very dramatic scene. I just had the idea of like, okay Charlie narrates on Snapchat,” he said.

He also worried that people might misinterpret his joke but it didn’t turn out that way.
“Everyone thought it was pretty funny. I’m just an idiot, it is what it is. I didn’t know who she was and now I do so I was like, ‘You might as well come to the show,’” he said.
Charlie only realized she was famous when he saw that Liza’s Twitter account has more followers than him. He then gave a message for the young actress.
“Liza, it’s nice to meet you over Twitter. I’ll see you soon. I don’t really know you that well yet but I’d like to.”
Charlie also shared why Philippines is special to him.
“Philippines is special [because] that’s where ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ was made. That’s really kind of my sound.”
This isn’t Charlie’s first time in the country for he already performed in Manila October of last year.
He then told his Filipino fans, “You are the reason why I’m more massive now. I’m so happy about that. It’s really inspiring to me to create more for you and to all my fans. Thank you for your continued support and I will see you again.”
