DOHA: Filipina international singing sensation Charice Pempengco is all set to stage her first ever concert here on September 29.
The two-hour concert which will be held at the Warm-Up Track next to Khalifa Stadium in Aspire Zone is expected to draw thousands of fans following Charice’s exciting singing career in Hollywood.
Golden Relations, the event company behind the successful events such as WWE and shows of Filipino comedians Kay Brosas and Vice Ganda, is again hosting the concert for the multi-awarded recording artist and “Glee” star.
“Since announcing the event early last month we have been flooded with enquiries via Facebook and on Twitter for more information regarding the show,” said Bilal Taha, CEO of Golden Relations.
Taha said it took them time to announce the venue since they have worked out for a bigger place that can accommodate at least 15,000 people.
“We are expecting a big turnout of crowd to the event since Charice’s followers are not only Filipinos but other nationalities as well,” Taha said.
More popularly known as Charice, the Filipino performer is currently among America’s singing sensations. She is widely-recognised for her smash-hit songs such as ‘Pyramid’, which featured singer Iyaz, and ‘Before It Explodes’ written by Bruno Mars.
Charice grabbed the limelight through YouTube, where US comedienne Ellen DeGeneres discovered her and later extended an invitation for the singer to be in her show. Charice’s appearance in DeGeneres’ programme later caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey. Her appearance in Winfrey’s show even more heightened her popularity in the US especially after the multi-award winning TV host and producer called her “the most talented girl in the world.”
Charice has also performed side-by-side with the biggest names in the international music scene such as Celine Dion, David Foster and David Archuleta.
She was also a cast in Season 2 of “Glee” as Sunshine Corazon, an exchange student from the Philippines who presents a serious competition against lead character Rachel Berry played by Lea Michele. Her TV role further enhanced her international popularity.
