Charice wows 'Good Morning America'

Charice, the country's youngest diva continued to win positive feedbacks for her singing prowess during a guest performance in America's top-rating morning show "Good Morning America."

Charice appeared in the show to promote David Foster's new CD-DVD "Hitman: David Foster & Friends." She is one of several performers included in the album namely music icons Kenny G., Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Brian McKnight, Katharine McPhee, Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. She performed the Whitney Houston chart-toppers "I Have Nothing" and "I Will Always Love You" for the show and received enthusiastic applause from the American audience.

Foster, who has won at least 15 Grammy Awards as a composer and record producer, is currently handling the Filipina’s career in the US.

During the interview with host Chris Cuomo, Foster hailed Charice for her astounding vocal prowess and said that he couldn't wait to produce the young Filipina's next album. He said that Charice had been singing a lot of his songs and was familiar with his music even before they met.

"She just kinda reminds me of the first time I saw Celine singing in a tent when she was 18 and I told Celine that she would sing with Barbra Streisand. And I told Charice that she would sing with Celine and it's all come true. She's amazing," Foster said.

Charice also joked that Foster was like a dad to her.
"I think it's amazing, working with him. I think he's funny and very comfortable working with, he's like my dad. 'Hey dad,'" Charice said.

Charice met Foster last year in Los Angeles before she taped her guest appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show". They later flew together to Las Vegas on a private jet to watch the farewell show of Celine Dion at the Caesar’s Palace Colosseum.

According to Charice, it was Foster who recommended her to Oprah's show and it was Oprah who in turn recommended her to Foster to handle her international recording career.

After her two guestings on Oprah, doors of opportunity started to open for the young Filipina. She has performed in various events such as Macy's 150th anniversary, the Carousel of Hope and even sang a duet with world famous tenor Andrea Bocelli in Tuscany, Italy last July.

Charice will stay in the US for three months to record her first international album, which is set for release in the early part of 2009.
