Charice a Big Hit in Andrea Bocelli's Birthday Concert
After her successful guesting in Ellen De Generes and and a standing ovation in David Foster's concert in Las Vegas, Charice once again has made the Philippines proud as she dazzled the crowd at the birthday concert of Italian operatic pop tenor Andrea Bocelli last Sunday, July 20 in Italy.
Charice performed with other international performers at the Theater of Silence of Lajatico, Italy dubbed as "The Cinema Tribute."
Charice shared her singing prowess to Bocelli's countrymen in an open air theater in Tuscany where Bocelli hails. The Italian tenor is set to turn 50 as he celebrates his birthday this 22nd of September.
Aside from completing the special affair, Charice again impressed the pop tenor as they performed a duet. The concert featured songs from some of the world's unforgettable musical films. Performers for the said concert were Nicolla Piovani, Roberto Bolle and Noa.
Charice said that she was going to be part of the big show that would definitely make a mark internationally on the talent of Filipinos.
"Siyempre naman po, every time na lalabas ako ng bansa talagang para po sa Pilipinas ang ginagawa ko gusto ko po ulit magbigay ng karangalan kaya sana ay maging proud sila sa next na gagawin ko," Charice said.
Charice went to Italy July 16, days before Boccelli's special birthday concert. The young diva met Bocelli when she performed for David Foster's discoveries for a benefit concert at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Friday, May 23rd.
In a previous interview, Bocelli invited Charice to be his special guest for his birthday concert.
