 PhilStar - Funfare Update received a report from its Hollywood DPA that Charice is in the cast of Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, a live action-animation production by 20th Century Fox currently shooting in L.A. and slated to be shown in the Philippines in January 2010. It’s not clear yet what role Charice is playing. She will be on the movie’s set next week when members of the press drop by for a visit.

The five-time Grammy Award-winning and one-time American Music Award-winning animated music group started recording novelty songs in the ’50s. They have been featured in several TV shows and in movies, the latest having been Alvin and the Chipmunks which was released in Dec. 2007, directed by Tim Hill and starring Justin Long in the title role.

A Funfare Update friend saw Charice several days ago in Laguna before she and her mom Raquel flew to L.A. after performing at an event at the Shangri-La Plaza.

“She was speaking with a ‘strange’ voice,” the friend observed. “Now I knew why. She sounded like a Chipmunk. She must have been ‘internalizing’ already.”

It is not clear yet what role she will play. Even then, we know this film is going to be big. The first installment of Alvin and the Chipmunks earned more than $700 million in worldwide box office including DVD sales.

Wikipedia - …on a budget of $55-$60 million, it made nearly $220 million in North America box office, nearly $360 million in box office worldwide, and was the third-best selling DVD of 2008, earning over $127 million.

The success of the first movie means that there will be a lot of hype going into the release date. The second installment, officially titled Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, is gearing for a December 25, 2009 release.  In fact, Disney had to bump up their Christmas offering titled The Princess and the Frog to December 11 to avoid the Chipmunks release.

Cinemablend - Disney picked the prestigious date of Christmas Day forever ago as the opening day for The Princess and the Frog, what it hopes to be the studio’s triumphant return to hand-drawn 2D animation. But when the princess found itself in a face-off against another family-friendly film that wanted the same release date, the Mouse House backed down. And that, children, is the story of how Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel has already bested a movie that actually looks good.

Princess will now be released on Dec. 11, a date that Variety notes is much better….

Truly, Charice will be a part of the success of this movie and even though there are still speculations on how big a role she is slated to play, the fact that she is part of a major movie is good enough. More than enough actually.

grabbed from a site, lol. She'd maybe be performing as another chipmunk XD

Charice will be singing at Pres. Barack Obama's Pre-Inaguration Ball.

As most of you know, Charice is Oprah's favorite .....and Oprah was one of Obama's biggest supporters.

I saw it myself onThe Filipino Channel when Charice guested on a variety show. She was so humble and tried not to brag about it so the show's host ended up spilling the beans that Charice is flying back to the US to sing in front of Obama.

Congrats Cha!

Charice's duet with Celine

Charice and Celine had a duet with the song 'Because you love me" at Madison Square Garden, New York last September 15. Cha dedicated this song to her mom and Celine was very generous to give the moment to Cha. Celine has such a big heart and I thought the part where Celine was hugging Cha was just heartwarming and cute.

The Voice Within

A homevid of Cha singing Christina Aguilera's "Voice Within".

I love raw vids of Cha. One, it proves to the haters that she isn't lip-synching, and two, it can't be used by ABS-CBN as an excuse to have Youtube delete Cha's vids :(
