the amazing charice pempengco

Seems like every other day I get an email from someone telling me about Charice Pempengco, this crazy talented 14-year-old singer from the Philippines. All right, already. Here's your entry on Charice, people.

This young talent apparently started getting a lot of attention when her rendition of "I Will Always Love You" hit the web. She was so good, a lot of people thought she was lip-syncing.

I first heard about Charice when I saw this clip of her on Korean television singing "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going". As they say in that country, "Whoooooooo." The above clip is from Charice's first visit to the United States, for a recent guest appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

You've got the dancing Cebu Prison inmates. You've got Arnel Pineda, the new lead singer of Journey. And now teen phenom Charice Pempengco. All this great talent coming from the Philippines! And all "discovered" on YouTube.
