Charice: I can relate to Jessica

Posted at 05/23/2012 6:39 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- Herself a product of a singing contest before becoming an international singing sensation, Charice said she can relate to Filipina-Mexican "American Idol" finalist Jessica Sanchez, who now faces a 50-50 chance of being declared champ on the popular TV show.

Charice, who placed third in local singing contest "Little Big Star" in 2005, said she knows of comparisons pitting her against Sanchez, but added that she continues to support the "Idol" contender, especially because she shared the same dream once.

"I think 'yung similarities na meron kami 'yung singing contest. I've seen her on YouTube, pero I think this is the first time na nakita ko siya on TV, 'yung singing competition pa. For me, it reminds me of 'Little Big Star,' except I know she's going to win," she said, laughing.

"People should stop comparing kasi I'm very proud of these girls," she added, referring to Sanchez and Cheesa Laureta, a Filipina finalist in US singing contest "The Voice." "And I can't wait for that day maybe Jessica will come here and Cheesa, and the three of us will collaborate."

"Some people, they compare us, sometimes negatively, pero sa akin, I think it's huge. These girls are, like, working so hard to get the names that they want, and that's why it feels so good. I know how they feel," she said.

The 20-year old singer, who is one of the four judges in the local version of reality singing competition "The X Factor," said that while she has achieved much at a young age, she continues to dream of further success in the international scene.

"Ako, I'm not going to say na nandyan na, narating ko na. Ang-dami ko pang gusto talaga na marating pa, 'di lang dito sa Philippines, but all over the world," she said.
