Why She's About to Pop:
Since her childhood years as a YouTube sensation, Charice wowed audiences worldwide with her powerful voice. Channeling Whitney Houston, the petite singer earned the attention of media moguls and legendary producer David Foster. Since her live duets with her idols Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli, Charice has stepped away from covers and developed a style that's more her own. On her recently released self-titled album, Charice breaks through with a new pop and R&B sound.

Charice has just celebrated her 18th birthday and with a hit single 'Pyramid' featuring Iyaz topping Billboard's dance charts, she couldn't be more excited about her success. In an exclusive interview with PopEater, Charice talks about singing for a living as a child and how her life has changed since she's been discovered. Check it out after the jump.
