Charice Pempengco, was born on May 10, 1992 in a small town in Cabuyao, Laguna Philippines. Conquering the struggles in her career proved to be patterned towards a dominant Taurus nature of being very workaholic in order to prepare for the battles of tomorrow rather than leaving it to fate.
Taurus are often judged as people who are very withdrawn, boring, or even sulky. This character was seen in Charice’s latest act as Sunshine Corazon in the hit US movie series, Glee. Casted as an exchange student from the Philippines, her role was groomed to be a serious competition of one of the lead roles Rachel Berry (Lea Michele).
Charice, who has the recognition to be called the Philippine’s International singing sensation, started a very slow career. At a very young age, she already joined several amateur singing contests to help her mother, who raised her single-handedly, get by with their financial constraints. As a wannabe, her biggest break happened in 2005 after she landed third place in a talent show in the Philippines, Little Big Star. Not getting the most coveted top spot, Charice appeared in several commercials and had minor roles in local television shows after that stint but eventually started to fade from the mainstream.
In 2007, Charice slowly made her presence felt and got invited to do demo-recordings in Sweden after music producers saw her videos. She was also invited as a guest for Star King, a South Korean talent show. With her voice usually mimicking popular singers such Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, she started to make a name in the industry. She made several appearances in US popular talk shows, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Oprah was so amazed by this Filipina singer and referred her to the legendary music producer, David Foster. Charice and David, later on, did several singing engagements together. David had so much admiration for her voice and sincere dedication that whenever he was asked on interviews, he would always say that Charice is the next big star!
In a lighter note, Charice does not have any serious and confirmed romantic relationships. In love, Taurus are very sensual beings. They always need to translate their feeling to physical contact like touching. They also take pleasures in what they can see, touch, smell, and taste.
