Hi Rose,
That's okay with me. I know how busy you are now, delineating your roles as a mother, a housewife and a blogger. You just have to implement time management and prioritizing. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

She has a beautiful voice indeed!

Hi Dhemz,
Oo nga, ang sarap nang out of town trip nyo at yung water activities ninyo. Swerte nga si Charice dahil sobrang sikat na siya ngayon ay siya lang ang only Asian recording artist na nakaabot sa Top 10 nang Billboard. Wala ngang mention nang father ni Charice. Baka magpakilala na kasi sikat na yung anak niyang inabandona niya, lol. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Charmie,
Yes, I agree with you and she will definitely go places. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

She is amazing. I like her when she first started in that koren show and then na viral video at sumikat sa youtube. Oprah likes her too kasi sa liit nya ang taas ang ganda ng boses. Napastanding ovasion yata mga viewers sa oprah when she performed. Pride of the Filipino, sana huwag magbago ano. they should keep their feet on the groud kahit sumikat pa at huwag lumaki ang ulo. Thanks for the post Sir Mel.

Hi Shy,
Charice will be the greatest Asian singer of all time. She was the only Asian singer to have hit the Top 10 at Billboard. I am so impressed by her rendition of songs. Ang ganda nang Pyramid niya. Alam kong marami pa siyang hit songs na ire record. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi sis Pia,
Yes, Pyramid has reached the Top Ten at Billboard Magazine. Charice is blessed and really has a magnificent voice we can all be proud of. Ang cute nang photo mo sis, lol. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Sir Mel.. Pasensha na po ha, di ako nakakapagbloghop masyado this past few weeks.. ang dami ko po kasi inaasikaso. Sana matuloy po yung binabalak namin.

ANyway, Charice is really super lucky girl. I really think so.. but i know she deserves it kasi super galing naman po talaga sya. Bihira lang talaga ma-recognized internationally. Bumisita po sya dito last 2 weeks yata, I feel so proud po kahit hindi ako fan. Sya pa lang kasi ang Pinoy na nakita ko sa local TV namin, at she was featured to several programs.. Nakakaproud talaga.

Thanks for this post =)

Hi Bambie dear,
You don't have to apologize. Naiintindihan kita. Charice is really very versatile and has a fine voice. She has attained what no other Asian musician has done before, and that is to reach the Top Ten of Billboard. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Tey said...

Hi Tey,
I respect your opinion regarding her. But at least we should be proud that she is a Pinay. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

i love charice's voice, it's really powerful. indeed, she's really one lucky, talented girl.

I'm not a fan of Charice but I do recognize her great talent. What's sad was that the American music industry digitalized her voice---why digitalized somebody who can sing? Digital sound effects are only produced to create beautiful tones when the singer cannot hit the desired note or cannot produce the desired tone. This is what they do to "singers" who cannot sing like Beyonce, Rihanna, Paula Abdul, Britney, J Lo and some other so-so "musicians"

Hi Meretrisha,
Yes, I agree with you. Charice has bought honors to our country the way Manny Pacquiao has done. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Bingkee,
How knowledgeable you are of the music and recording industry. I'm not aware of a recording that has been digitalized. Thanks for the information. Now I know better. But Charice will surely flourish, digitalized recording or not. People will know that because she sings on live shows. She has brought honors to the country the way Manny Pacquiao also did. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
