Charice first appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show last May 12, 2008 in an episode entitled the “World’s Smartest Kids”, in which she performed Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing. It was through the recommendation of Oprah Winfrey that music producer David Foster took Charice under his wing.
Charice made a second appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show on the September 9 “Dreams Come True” episode, in which Oprah referred to her as “The Most Talented Girl in the World.” She sang Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” with David Foster on piano, then Oprah went on to surprise her with an appearance by Celine Dion via satellite, who invited her to sing a special duet at New York City’s Madison Square Garden as part of Dion’s Taking Chances Tour (which was critically-acclaimed by the way).
After almost 2 years, Charice is slated to return to the Oprah Winfrey Show on May 11, 2010, to release her international debut album. The pre-order page on Oprah.com will be changed to “now on sale” and Charice’s campaign for Billboard 200 will also begin on this date.
Prior to the launch of her album, the official music video of Charice‘s carrier single “Pyramid” will be released on Oprah.com on Monday, April 12, 2010. This is the world premiere of her music video with Iyaz and it’s also the date when Charice’s campaign to top the Billboard singles chart will finally take off. The music video will also begin airing on MTV, Channel V and other music channels around the world.
The making of Pyramid music video will also be featured on Oprah.com on April 26. And beginning April 27 until Charice appears on the Oprah Winfrey Show on May 11, a track from her album will be streamed online one by one.
