It was Monday morning( 25-Feb-08), being a regular viewer of Ellen Degeneres show,I tuned my TV to Star world,after reaching home from my routine morning basketball practice.Im not a bigtime talk show fan, not at all..But there’s something about Ellen that keeps me glued to the TV every morning.
But, this particular show was something beyond apprehension. And this episode had a guest by name “Charice Pempengo” who upon Ellen’s introduction I learnt to be a…
Surprise1: Filipino (Duh??!! What was a person from Philippines doing on Ellen’s show in USA)
Surprise2: Is a 15 year old girl who can sing supposedly well (Whats the big deal, I bet there are loads of kids who can sing at that age..”supposedly well” too.
I knew immediately that its gonna be one of those boring “talk a lot” episode!!! What I didn’t know.,was that the Charice would leave such an effect on me that I’ll be writing about her in my Blog
The show starts, with a girl of 15 old years with typical Filipino looks and nice black suit entering the studio.Without further ado, Ellen handed over the microphone to Charice to do her thing-Which is sing…
The kid walked to the little diaz like place between the audience and Ellen.
The music started playing…For one moment I thought Whitney Houston is at the sets of Ellen Degeneres…But Wait a minute, It was Charice singing “And I am telling You”
The next 5-8 mins, America saw the first stage of Charice achieving stardom.She received a standing ovation from the crowd and Ellen herself.
Watch it to beleive it...
