Charice hopes family will watch her concert
MANILA – Singer Charice is still hoping that her family will watch her concert at the Araneta Coliseum later this month.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Charice said it would be nice if to see her mom in the audience when she shares the stage with Aiza Seguerra.
“Of course, I wish they could come. It would be very nice if they watch. Kumbaga magiging huge step na iyon eh,” she said.
In her live interview on “The Buzz” last Sunday, Charice said she still misses her mother and younger brother, with whom she hasn't spoken to since coming out as a lesbian months ago.
"Especially malapit na ang Christmas, nandoon 'yung wish ko na magkaintindihan [kaming lahat]," she said.
"Kahit lahat ng tao sa mundo sabihin sa akin na proud sila sa akin, iba ang feeling kapag sa kanila galing," a teary-eyed Charice added.
Charice revealed that she just thinks about how much support she is getting from her fans to drown her sadness.
Just recently, she held a successful mall tour where she launched her new album “Chapter 10.”
“Hindi ko inexpect na ganun kabilis [mabibili 'yung album]. Actually I was nervous kung ano ang mangyayari kasi from the day I came out, bago na lahat eh. I want to thank all the people who bought the album or downloaded the album,” she said.
Charice said the new album is more meaningful to her because the songs show who she really is.
“Nasu-suprise ako na nao-overwhelm and thankful and blessed. I just never expected this. Lutang pa ako. But it doesn’t matter because the most important thing is I want them to have it, to listen to it,” she said.
Among the songs included in Charice’s album is a duet with girlfriend, Alyssa Quijano.
