Charice – “Pyramid” feat. Iyaz

If you haven’t heard about Charice, chances are you will in the next few months.  This pint-sized singer from the Philipines made a name for herself through YouTube (so common these days!) and made a particularly huge impact when she performed “Note To God” on Oprah in 2009.  That YouTube clip has over 2 million hits.  Check it out:

It gets pretty ridiculous around 2:15 in, then she just kills it at the end… Yeah.  Let’s see Miley Cyrus do that.

Anyhow, Charice’s new single is “Pyramid” featuring Iyaz.  It’s going to be a challenge for her to cross over from the big, huge broadway-esque songs like “Note To God” to more mainstream pop fare… But with her incredible range and agility, I wouldn’t be surprised if she pulled it off.  In fact, her new video for “Pyramid” already has almost 2.3 million hits and it was only posted a month ago.  Check it out here:

Simply Richard: Versus frontman plays rare solo gig

Yes, THE Richard Baluyut, frontman of longtime indie rock legend Versus.

John Park: We’re rooting for you!

I don’t really watch American Idol.  But there’s a guy named John Park who sounds phenomental.  Check out his audition here:

I suppose it’s a little weird that everyone keeps commenting on how “surprised” they are at his voice.  I guess William Hung’s legacy still haunts the American Idol audition rooms… But aside from that (and Shania’s obsession with his “bottom end” and his “lips”), the man can sing.

John Park, you’ve got my vote.
