Biography

Laguna, Philippines (2005 – present)

Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco (born May 10, 1992 in Laguna, Philippines), nickname Charice, is the latest singing sensation to come out of the Philippines. Charice started singing at the age of 4. Her talent was discovered by her mother, Raquel, who was also the lead vocalist in a band in her younger days. Her mother became her vocal coach and so began her training.

“CHARICE! Remember the name!” was the statement made onstage by David “the Hit Man” Foster (multi-award winning songwriter) on his birthday tribute held in Mandalay Bay Resort, in Las Vegas last May 2008, wherein Charice received the first ever standing ovation given to an entertainer in that venue, from an audience of 10,000.

At the age of 7, Charice began to join local singing competitions, winning most of them, eventually graduating into nationwide and syndicated television shows, competing nationally. It wasn’t until 2005 when she was 13 and competed in the show “Little Big Star” (a show which can be likened to the “Idol” franchise, in which the participants get voted in or out by text votes) that she really started to garner attention and build her own so-called fanbase.

One of Charice’s fans, later known as FalseVoice, made a video of one of her performances from the show pitting it against the performance of another well-known young singer, Bianca Ryan ( the 11 year old winner of America’s Got Talent) and posted it on YouTube.
