Charice to sing at Obama inaugural

According to Funfare's US-based "roving" DPA, there's a possibility that Charice might perform at the inauguration ball of President-elect Barack Obama on Jan. 20 next year. It's not confirmed yet. The DPA said that "every artist is volunteering to perform at the event." Charice is being handled by Oprah who is close to the Obamas, having campaigned for Barack. Oprah is said to be pushing for Charice to be included in the "magic list."

"Knowing Oprah's clout and Charice's impressive record so far," added the DPA, "it won't be a surprise if she does make it to the Obama inaugural."

2008 has been a fruitful year for Charice who, as we all know, was discovered through the YouTube last year by somebody connected with Ellen DeGeneres. Before long, Charice was guesting on the show of Oprah Winfrey who was so impressed that she eventually became Charice's handler. Then, Charice caught the attention of David Foster who invited her top perform at a concert he put up in the East Coast and included her in an album featuring big names.

After performing with Celine Dion in New York's Madison Square Garden, Charice then graced Macy's Thanksgiving Day last Nov. 27 with teen stars Miley Cyrus and David Archuleta (this year's runner-up in American Idol Season 7).
