Glee Star in Dubai
Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco aka Charice, is going to
be a part of the Filipino Festival happening at DFC on 7 October. Currently
billed as America’s hottest singing sensation and also known as “Oprah
Winfrey’s baby”, she last performed in emirate in 2009.
Charice rose to fame when US comedian Ellen DeGeneres discovered
her on YouTube and invited her to perform on her show. The Filipino beauty’s popularity
soared further when she was cast as Sunshine Corazon in the second season of
Glee, playing an exchange student from Philippines who gave tough competition
to the lead character Rachel Berry played by Lea Michele.
Charice recently released her new music video for One Day,
which was co-written and co-produced by Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. She’ll
belt out her new single, as well as her trademark covers of classic hits during
her performance in Dubai at the Filipino Festival which will also feature a
game parlour for kids, mobile foot spas and stalls selling Philippine-made
goods and delicacies throughout the day.
As soon as tickets for Charice’s show go on sale
we’ll announce it online on our Events line-up. Watch this space for it.
