Charice: A Rising Asian Popstar in the US?

MANILA, Philippines – Her 2nd international single, “Pyramid,” has already reached the top of the latest Billboard dance/club play chart, but singing sensation Charice still shies away from the possibility that she might become the first Asian top pop star in the United States.

“It’s really hard to go international, so that’s why I’m not expecting it right now. I love the record, but I don’t know if it will go far,” Charice told New York Daily News.

The Daily News told the singer that she might be the first Asian to become a major pop singer in the US if her recently released self-titled album turns into a bestseller there.

If it happens, Charice said it will not only be a “really big privilege for me” but a “big responsibility” as well. “It would show that Asians are really talented and can make it everywhere.”

In the interview, the 18-year-old pint-sized Filipino singer expressed surprise that many Americans were shocked by her huge voice. She said in the Philippines “it’s not such a big deal because there are a lot of little people there and a lot of them have big voices.”

“It feels weird to me that people are so surprised. But I do think, it’s one of the reasons I made it,” she said.

Charice also narrated how she made it in the international music scene and how Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres discovered her talent.

Charice officially launched her 1st international album on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on May 11.
