Charice puts an end to the long-time rumor that she is dating fellow young singer David Archuleta. The two had frequently shared a stage since his coming as an "American Idol" runner-up and her breakthrough in U.S. In early November, they came together for the tree lighting at The Grove, in Los Angeles.
During a Billboard Live Q & A on Monday, November 29, Charice answered questions from fans who are curious of what's going on between them. A fan wrote, "Charice you sing love songs w/so much emotion, are you thinking of somebody while singing? Is it David Archuleta?"
Charice replied, "First of all, I am friends with David and he is a great guy. Second, about singing love songs with emotion, it's part of being a singer. If it's a love song, sometimes I dedicate it to my friends, family, but not David Archuleta." One later gave a more direct question whether they are dating and she responded, "No, No."
Charice is featured on Archuleta's Christmas 2009 album "Christmas from the Heart" in the classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
