Charice (formerly Charice Pempengco) guested on Oprah for the second time and this time the 15-year-old singing sensation got the surprise of her life.
Her idol Celine Dion also appeared on the show to talk to her via video conference from Washington, D.C. “Hi Charice. Hi sweetheart. I have to tell you that I am speechless, to start with–and it’s not a good way to start–I have, hmm, I have heard you sing. I have seen some, a little bit of your life story. And I am extremely ecstatic like the rest of the world who is watching right now. I can tell you that we have lots of things in common. And I also had a mother, still have a mother, who is my strength. My passion I carry in my heart. And so my beauty. And David Foster, you cannot even think of finding somebody even better than that to bring the best out of you. You have more talent than most people.” said the Canadian superstar who popularized the hit song “My Heart Will Go On” among other tracks.
Then Celine went on inviting Charice for her show in New York, “And if I may I would love to propose something. I would love to do something very special with you. Next week, I’m gonna be singing at Madison Square Garden and I would love to ask you to come and sing a duet with me. And we can sing together. Maybe we can sing “Because You Loved Me”, and maybe we can dedicate this song to your mother. So I hope you can travel and come in New York to meet with me,” Dion told Charice.
The good news made Charice burst into tears of joy.
