Let me start by saying that I have lost a lot of sleep in the past weeks. Who cares right? But I want to mention that Charice and her voice is the reason why I have lost sleep. I have been playing Charice's songs over and over again until the late AM almost every day ever since Oprah released those songs on her website.
I first heard of Charice about a month ago when I heard her Pyramid song on the radio in the car - I was captured at that moment and was hurrying home to look the song up on YouTube. Once on YouTube, my journey into her life began. I was fascinated that someone as small as her has that kind of a voice, a voice that really touches the heart and soul. In addition to her emotional voice, she sings with a passion; she gives it her all in every song. The performances that I saw on Oprah and various other places have all put me into an awkward emotional state. My emotions were unconsciously let out and left me with a bittersweet feeling.

I did not buy the Amazon copy of this album since this is only the version with 12 tracks. I bought the deluxe version at Target today with two bonus songs "Are We Over and "Breathe You Out" - 14 tracks total. I also ordered online on QVC the special QVC edition with four bonus tracks that's not included in this version and the Target/itunes version - 16 tracks total. I have never in my life bought two versions of the same album - this means something.
I will review the 12 tracks Amazon version of this album below:

01) Pyramid Ft. Iyaz - This is the song that lured me into getting to know this talented girl. Props to Iyaz for making this song even catchier. 4.5/5

02) Reset - I saw her performing this song live in LA on YouTube and I was hooked right away. From that moment. She can also rap!

I first saw Charice her first time on the Oprah Winfrey show. I generally don't listen to the genre of music that includes Whitney, Celine, Beyonce, Mariah, etc. But when I saw Charice, I was stunned by the beauty, power and maturity of her voice and the perfection and fearlessness of her performance. (So was Oprah.) I next saw her on the PBS program, "Hit Man, David Foster and Friends." Then I looked her up on youtube.

Clip after clip of amazing performances: At an Oscars after party, she covers "Listen" so focused and intense that when she ended the last high note, I was out of breath! The clip of her singing "I Believe" with a full orchestra and chorus shows her amazing range and is one of the best performances I have ever seen. These still bring tears to my eyes.

For an example of why Charice's voice is so special, watch her duet with Celine Dion on youtube ("Because You Loved Me"). Celine sings the first phrase, Charice sings the second phrase - the exact same notes. Where Celine's voice is nasal and thin, Charice's voice is full of undertones that give it a deeper, fuller, warmer sound.

Charice became an international star by singing the best songs of the best singers of the last 30 years, with minimal backing tracks and backup singers and no engineering tricks. Just her beautiful, sweet, powerful voice and fearless performances carrying the songs. That was the bait that got me hooked on Charice. This CD is a switch.

It is aimed at a younger demographic. I am 58 and understand that Charice wants to sing contemporary songs written for her generation.

It is contemporary commercial pop, replete with engineering tricks and effects of Charice's voice. The sound has a generic commercial pop quality.

Amazing! This album gave me a fabulous listening experience replete with goosebumps!

I pre-ordered Charice's debut album from Amazon and iTunes... I'm so glad I did because the album is really impressive! For one thing, it was produced by 15-time Grammy winner, David Foster, with the stellar collaboration of songwriters and musicians, who put together new songs with the catchiest tunes and meaningful lyrics. The selection of quality songs reveals that production was not rushed. Plus, the album delivers the versatile talent of Charice, whose outstanding vocals make the songs sound stunning. Charice's exceptionally wide vocal range, rich tone, extraordinary vocal control, and soulful rendition make the songs spring to life. Her phenomenal talent gets listeners to feel and appreciate each song's beautiful movements. Charice is without doubt a gifted artist whose brilliant performances turn songs of varied genres into beautiful pieces of art.

There's no denying that I've been a fan of Charice ever since I first heard her voice (when I chanced upon a PBS Special aired in December 2008). Personally, I feel that listening to the powerful vocals of Charice is like encountering some unforeseen force of nature. It is a force that has left me utterly floored countless times. That MEGAVOICE exploding from her petite frame packs an astounding power that moves and stuns the audience. Her phenomenal talent is undeniably a gift from God...what a joy to hear her sing!! To say that she is amazing is an understatement. Consider her incredible impact on audiences: big smiles, teary eyes, spontaneous applause, extended standing ovations, awe-struck exclamations, shouts of praises, and clamours for encore. If you have yet to hear her live vocals, brace yourself for the force of nature that Charice is. She is genuinely a world-class diva who delivers mind-blowing goosebump performances again and again!!!
