MANILA, Philippines - International young crooner Charlie Green on Tuesday signed a 2-year contract with Viva Records.

The 12-year-old British-Filipino singer is excited to be working with the Viva team and international composer Christian De Walden.

"I'm really happy. This is really a great opportunity to work with Christian De Walden, Boss Vic [del Rosario Jr.] and the whole of Viva team. Hope that we will have a really good 2 years and hopefully longer. I am really excited," he said.

Green, who made several television guestings in the Philippines, is also thrilled that he is given a chance to go back and work in the country again. His father, Roger, has accompanied him during the contract signing.

The young singer said he will start recording his debut album on February 3.

The album will be composed of 12 to 13 tracks, 2 of which are original songs while some are Filipino classics.

There is also a possibility that he might do a duet with Sarah Geronimo, who is also a Viva artist. Green already worked with Geronimo during the pop star princess’ concert in the United States last year.

"These songs are sort of classics from before and then making it more modern and more up to date," he said.

The singer, who rose to fame after joining the popular “Britain’s Got Talent,” is hoping that his album will not only be distributed in the Philippines but in the US and Europe as well.

And since he is going to spend more time here, the Green family has rented a small condominium in Metro Manila.

Aside from his album, he is also expected to hold several shows while he is in the country. For starters, Green will have a concert in Eastwood on February 10.
