I know she's taking America by storm, but is she really that great? Although she's a great belter, I still find her "talent" sub-par compared to the other Filipino stars who deserve more attention. This is not crab mentality, I'm actually happy for her continued success in the States, but get real people! She's not the best thing since sliced bread... or is she? What do you think of the young internet sensation, Charice?

To whom are you comparing Charice? With her age, what would you expect? Someone as versatile as Lani? As melodious as Regine? As sophisticated as Pops? And whom would you compare Charice with? Those who eventually won the contest she joined? Charice shows more maturity and power than her contemporaries. I don't know who are those other Filipino stars you think should deserve more. As we all know, being a star is not just on talent alone. You have to have that "it" factor and have to be in the right place on the right time. If it happened that those other great singers did not get the mileage, then maybe they just don't have what it takes to be that "star". Come to think of it. Are all the successful singers in the United States can be considered the great ones? WTH! Madonna has a very ordinary voice! Britney Spears' voice is nothing but a bathroom voice either. But they made it through. The world has spoken. They are now embracing Charice. I wonder what's the point of asking whether she is great or not. I think we should instead ask if she will be able to really shine as a star for the whole world to admire.

I think charice deserves the attention. I watched almost every video of her in youtube. At first I wasnt really impressed but only because the fact that I really dont know how to sing well. I dont listen to music often. And I really dont know much about singing. But As i always listen and watched her videos, Im starting to like her. At first also I thought other young singer is better than her but when I heard their own version of the song or I mean when I heard them sing the same song I compared their singing. And I just realized now that charice is really better than them. Like her version of "and Im telling you". I listen to other singer sing this song and I could say that charice is better. And the song because you love me. I listen to other singer in youtube singing the same song and I could tell that charice can sing the song better than them too. She has a very strong and powerfull voice which excel her the most. And she is the only young singer who can sing high notes longer and consictently good. She's really excellent.

Well, you seem to contradict yourself inyuboz, she (Charice) actually is the best thing since lani Misalucha, Kuh Ledesma, Marin Nievera, et al, to name a few. Lani was able to break into the American entertainment scene, but she still remained on the lowerlevel stages in Las Vegas, what Charice has done, none of those before her have accomplished, showcase our vast Filipino talents starting with Charice. Now people from around the world noticed one of US, let us all build on that instead of soliciting opinions which would otherwise showcase our negative attitudes. Like Manny Pacquiao, he won't be there forever, on top, but the boxing world have taken notice of the caliber of Filipino pugilists, same with our singers, they could compete toe-to-toe, note for note with anyone in the world, we just lack the exposure. Charice did open that door, she got the exposure every aspiring singers want, let us all take advantage, those who think they're better than Charice, prove yourselves without demeaning the image she has already built for many of our up and coming singers. Get a Life! Be Proud! Let Us Build on it and not Destroy! Wilfredofelia

She's great, period! She's not perfect and all but she's really good in singing. Also, she's humble and down to earth and I think that adds up to her charisma. Plus, she has a hell of a manager and that's the final ingredient to her recipe of success.

Hello inkyuboz. I like charice. She has an amazing voice. At a young age she really is a great belter. Im happy for her success and I hope that she would continue to make her fans proud of her.

Charice Pempengco is really a good singer. But, I don't like her singing or having a duet with Arnel Pineda 'coz she looks like insecure to the voice of Arnel. She force herself or her voice up to the level of voice of Arnel so that her voice will be more heard by many than of Arnel.

Charice Pempengco made all the Filipinos proud but I must admit that I'm not a big fan of her.. Yeah, she's a grear belter but i still find her talent not that amazing.. There are better singers than her and yes, who deserve better attention... But I'm happy that she's being recognized here and abroad..=)

Charice Pempengco is a talent coupled with luck. There are lots of great Filipino singers or should I say Filipino belters. It just so happened that Charice got lucky because she was noticed and had an appearance at the Ellen Degeneres Show and Oprah. Those are two popular shows in the United States. That exposure has given her the edge over other Filipino artists who could be better in singing than her.
