Having the first international studio album in the works, YouTube singing sensation Charice exclusively shares to AceShowbiz that she eyes to drop the record this fall. Furthermore, the young singer who has shared stage with big singers such as Celine Dion reveals her desire to make a collaboration with Justin Timberlake.

Charice also opens up about her plan to hit the road with her mentor David Foster either in October or November. While waiting her album to arrive in stores, fans can visit Amazon to purchase her new single "Note to God" which is listed among chart-toppers like Black Eyed Peas and Lady GaGa in "NOW That's What I Call Music 31".

ASB: When did you start singing?

Charice: I started singing when I was 4 years old, but I'm sure I was singing in the womb.

ASB: What does a family mean to you and how they make contribution to your singing career?

Charice: My mom and brother are the rocks in my life. My mom especially - she is the reason I'm singing and the reason I love what I do. My brother is still in school but I see him a lot and he sometimes travels with me when he's not in school. I am with my mom all the time which I love.

ASB: Your amazing talent was first noticed through a YouTube video. Who had the idea of uploading it on the web?

Charice: A cool guy and very close friend in the Philippines call Dave (we call him falsevoice). I owe a lot to him for sure!!!

ASB: Reaching fame on such a young age, you are often considered as a role model for your peers. Is there pressure for holding such title?

Charice: A little but something I'm happy to do! I hope my peers so how you can make your dreams come true by believing in yourself and never giving up.

ASB: How did you meet David Foster and end up working with him and Warner Bros. for your new album?

Charice: David Foster is my mentor and I am so honored to be working with him - he's the best in the world. He noticed me on YouTube and sent it to Oprah. David is with Warner Brothers which is why I am there.

ASB: Many of your fans are curious about the record, what is the title? And when will it arrive in stores?

Charice: No title yet! It will be out this fall I hope. We're still in the studio.

ASB: Talking about your debut single "Note to God", what does it deal with?

Charice: It's simply about a note to God.

ASB: When will you come by U.S. for a tour to promote the album?

Charice: I will be touring this us this October/November with David Foster and friends. I'm very excited!

ASB: You have shared stage with big singers such as Celine Dion and and Michael Buble. Is there any singer you haven't met and wish to make a duet with?

Charice: Celine was my biggest dream but now I want to sing and dance with Justin Timberlake.

ASB: Do you spare an interest to be a teen movie star who also sings like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato?

Charice: Of course! I shot a scene in 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' which was so much fun. I love to act!

ASB: Beside singing, what else do you fancy doing?

Charice: Dancing - I love to dance and I want this to be part of my performance life.

ASB: How do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years from now as a singer?

Charice: To just continue to love to sing - that's what I care about the most.

ASB: Please leave a message for your fans at AceShowbiz!

Charice: Hi AceShowbiz! You're awesome and I can't wait to have fun with you at my concerts.

I know Charice got a million fans that have been touched by her awesome voice... I’m one of these people. I can't get enough of her. Every now and then I just need to check on her new videos in YouTube. I have been following her since “Starking” performance. She’s a good example for the youngsters. She’s such a sweet person, childlike attitude and a loving daughter. She inspires us all to do our bests in our field of expertise and someday we will reap the fruits of our labor.

I heard WH's new single, luv her, but i'll reserve my comment on it later. As for Charice, i thought she's untouchable and a new, fresh performer -- worth every dollar you will spend to watch her LIVE in concert and to buy her CD/albums.... WTG girl!
posted by RossN on Jul 03, 2009
I'm amazed at her range in her vocals, singing difficult and different types of songs. You can teach and train a person only so much more than they are capable of. Cha was born with her amazing voice. God made her a natural. I believe the ICON torch has been passed to her.

Hey chasters, don't waste your time mentioning these few negative people in you comments. Ignore them completely and they'll dissapear. Love you Ming.
posted by Dadartful on Jul 03, 2009
MJ's lawyer must be a liar too. He's the one who invited Cha to be a guest. I thought her first answer, singing in the womb was interesting and funny.

Hey charicesucks, maybe charice is lying too when she said she is guesting at ellen, oprah or at celine's concert. maybe its a different person who guested in these shows not charice. what do you think? well, i think you are a loser with full of envy in your heart. what you are doing wont make charice miserable. she can sleep well at night whereas you can not sleep with that JEALOUSY in your heart. better set 911 in your speed dial coz you would need it once you have an attack of ENVY!!! pathetic
posted by shar on Jul 02, 2009
@charicesucks, she got yhis far by asian standards, ok? how about you? where have you gone so far? i hope too far... very far.... away from this planet because you are such an enviuos, jealous, no talent at all or else you would not be writing such venom....
posted by MDR on Jul 02, 2009
Too late to pull Charice down, whatever your envy heart spits out here -- she's already up there & made it!! You haters should just accept and embrace her success. FYI, Note to God is included in 'NOW that's what i call music, Vol. 31' -compilation of hits here in the U.S. PEACE!

your awesome charice.. just ask u a favor pls.dont call names the people who are around you..simply call their first names..para di masakit sa tenga..kung ganyan ka lagi babagsak ka sa lalong madaling panahon..kung magka-ganoon man sayang lahat nang effort na ginawa mo..sana mag-pakumbaba ka lang at lagi mong isipin ang payo ni oprah dahil totoo lahat iyon siya na lang ang halimbawa mo di siya mayabang kaya siya nasa taas lagi siya..sana huwag mo kaming biguin..we are proud of u. take care

posted by Charicefanatic on Jul 01, 2009
charice is playful at her age, now 17yr., she is still a kid at heart, but when she sings really "force to reckon with" she can do anything in singing to entertain any age level,she is amazing

posted by jessica86s on Jul 01, 2009
wondere what you mean by that Jessie? And lander, answers are just as uninteresting as the questions. bet you havent been in her position. So how would you know.
posted by KJ on Jul 01, 2009
can't wait for her album! lander, i think her answers are a lot more funny and interesting when she is interviewed by Filipino TV shows, so i guess she's still learning to speak fluent English.

Great interview! Can't wait for Charice's album to hit the stores! Good luck!
