Since I've been a Chaster for just a little over six months (written in June 2011), I'm trying to catch up with everything about Charice - songs, articles, photos, videos, etc. Hers is an incredible journey every Chaster is privileged to watch and be a part of.
I'm listing here links to and excerpts of articles about her. I plan to go back as far as the earliest article about her that I can find, making a series for each year.

And this is what I believe continues to make Charice a standout. That smile is real. That gladness is real. At the age of 9, she knew what it meant to delight in what she was doing. Look at the video again in case you may have missed it. Do you see any violent past in her eyes? Any hunger in her facial expression? Any desire to win for winning’s sake? Whether or not such things are in her, notice that the moment the music starts, her joy, her genuine, immeasurable joy over music, takes over and to my mind, it is this that continues to be her most appealing talent.
