Charice, keep your feet on the ground and your sights on infinity!

I've seen the photos. I've watched the videos. I've read the comments. Congratulations, Charice, for your performance in the F1 Singapore event!

I hope you get some good rest and enjoy Singapore these few days before you fly to Doha, Qatar for your solo concert on September 29 and then on to Las Vegas for the David Foster & Friends on October 1. And then by mid-October, your Asia Pacific tour with DFF!

Traveling across the world and doing what you love best - I'm so happy with how things are turning out for you, and so proud of how much you have achieved at such a young age! I read a post on Facebook by your mom and she is so right (I translated the Tagalog parts for the non-Filipino Chasters):
I cried when I saw this video. Brings back the times... it's now my baby girl's songs that they're singing. Who would have thought that this would happen? BE PATIENT, TRUST IN GOD, AND DREAM HIGH... That's the secret...
I pray you continue as you are, Cha, despite all the pressure around you to be different. Keep your feet on the ground and your sights on infinity!

Charice rehearses dance moves for "Louder" music video...

...and plays hide-and-seek with Chasters.

(Click on the pictures to see Charice's or uploader's comments.)

Checked Twitter and found a series of photos shared by Charice since September 8 but, except for one, without showing her face!

Playful as ever, she knows how much her fans would like to see her and she teased us with these cool pictures. Anyway, she gave hints of what's coming with her music video for "Louder" which, according to MagnusToday's write up, she'll be shooting next Tuesday.

Luckily too, several people shared their own photos showing Charice's lovely face and I think that made Chasters more than happy.
What a SURPRISE! Just found pics @OfficialCharice took of herself w/my camera phone! She looks GORGEOUS xxoo
(I think Charice took this pic on the day of her Acuvue live chat.)
Now what we will be waiting for will be her performance in the 9/11 tribute during the NFL match between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. She had proven it before and she'll do so again that she need not be an American to sing the beloved "Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" with the passion and conviction that's expected to be spine-tingling, gooosebumping, phenomenal!

INFINITY: Charice's 2nd Album, Japan Limited Edition

The news has been posted all over, starting with tweets from Japanese Chasters da1sio and twistinharry referring to the ad on Amazon Japan (google translated web page).

This second album of Charice will be historical and expected to be even more than her debut international album which was the first by an Asian to land in the Billboard 200 (Top 8).

"Infinity" will still be released on October 5, 2011 but it is already high up in Amazon Japan's lists:

Charice's "Infinity" track list includes:
Far As The Sky


New World

Before It Explodes

Lost The Best Thing

One Day

Never Always

Bounce Back


Lesson For Life

Living It Up

I say I am loving the titles - just reading them already gives a positive lift and makes me look forward to better things!

The exciting news about Charice and Japan does not end here: Charice is coming up with another One Day music video for Japan and will have a free concert in Tokyo!
