The Kapamilya star was packaged as a diva with power ballads as her repertoire. However, the 23-year-old singer image was different after David introduced her on stage.

Charice, who had been joining singing competitions to help her family earn, went on to headline a worldwide tour with David Foster and made countless TV guests in parts of North America and Europe. The brave girl, who admits to being a lesbian in 2013, proudly stepped into the spotlight on Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, wearing a suit and sporting a short hair, accompanied by Foster on piano to perform the Sam Smith tune “Lay Me Down”.
