“Dad, turn up the radio!”
said Number One Son. I did, and while I heard Iyaz, there was a woman singing too. “She’s from the Philippines,” added my son. It turns out the the woman was Filipino singer Charice Pempengco. As Christine pointed out here, she became famous when Ellen DeGeneres brought her on her show. Charice later signed with David Foster. In any case, I was happy that like Jay Sean, an Asian artist was getting mainstream radio airplay. I also thought it was interesting that one of my kids would notice her before I did. That confirms to me that she is really getting a wider audience.
According to her website, Charice’s album will be released on May 11, while “Pyramid” is available on iTunes now.
