Read Charice to perform at David Foster and Friends Concert in Singapore after rushed to hospital.

Charice Pempengco gets standing ovations during her part on David Foster and Friends in Manila on October 23, as reported by her fans at ChariceDiva.

According to the post, Pinay international singing sensation received multiple standing ovations from her local Charice fans after rendering songs on the Manila version of David Foster and Friends Asian Tour, just last night.

Unlike other nationalities, Filipinos are known to be a hard-to-please audience and very seldom that they give standing ovation either to foreign or local artists.

But with Charice, she was said to have made the crowd of Araneta Coliseum wild as she sang ‘Power of Love’ by Celion Dion, the report said.

Other Celine Dion’s songs that Charice sang include ‘To Love You More’ and ‘All by Myself’, and later, she sang her own song Pyramid, which was earlier reported to be a big hit in Billboard charts.

Nonetheless, Charice apparently received another standing ovation after singing her trademark song, the Bodyguard Medley.

But earlier in the show, David Foster and Charice was said to have spend a few minutes to thank personally the person behind the uploading of Charice’s video at You Tube, Dave Duenas, and eventually opened doors for Charice to be known internationally.

Meanwhile, some local celebrities like Randy Santiago and Pilita Corales were given each a 30-second chance to sing, also according to ChariceDiva.

Arnel Pineda, lead singer of Journey, was said to have spotted by Foster and was requested to sing, and the former eventually sang ‘Hard Habit to Break’, by Chicago.

Later, the crowd cheered as Peter Cetera delighted the audience with his own songs like ‘You’re the Inspiration’, ‘If You Leave Me Now’, as well as the soundtrack of the original version of the Karate Kid movie, ‘Glory of Love’.

Below is a video at You Tube uploaded by ChariceConcerts, as Charice sings Power of Love, with David Foster doing the piano, during the David Foster and Friends in Manila last October 23, 2010.
