I have mentioned here before how much I appreciate Charice’s singing talent. The girl never fails to give me goosebumps every time she sings and that means she’s very good. She’s got that ability in her, making her audience get goosebumps haha. An international album singing her own songs, performed with great singers, met celebrities– she’s gotten so far from being the runner up in a local singing contest back home. All this became possible because of the nice people who helped her, and by those nice people I mean Oprah and David Foster. Wow. Talk about mentors and it’s hard to have better than that.
Her talent is undeniable but it’s not why I made this post. When I pressed the play button I expected to hear this young lady’s great voice but what I didn’t expect is David Foster’s soft emotional side. I shed a tear, that was how touched I was when the video showed him teary eyed and his voice breaks when he said that Charice gave him a letter and asked him to be her Godfather. David was holding back his tears. He’s like a father to her. Lucky Charice. To be surrounded by great talents and nice nice people is such a great blessing.
I now see David Foster in a different light.
