Charice Pempengco has been wowing people all over the world, but the icing on her incredible story must be her appearance yesterday in "Oprah".
Born in San Pedro, Laguna 16 years ago to a loving mother, and as shown in the clip, an abusive father, Charice's Cinderella life is just getting better and better.
After her duet with Andrea Bocelli in Italy, she will match vocal talents with her ultimate idol, Celine Dion, this month at the Madison Square Garden in New York. This last piece of good news, delivered by Celine herself, made the young Pinay (and Oprah!) cry.
If the YouTube clip doesn't work, here's the link to her website where you can view Charice's Oprah performance & interview.
