Charice at the Pearl Presidential Inaugural Gala @ Mandarin Oriental, Washington, DC
Took this video the first time Charice took the stage to perform before the Asian American and Pacific Islander community gala. She performed "God Bless America" and "One Moment in Time" and she blew the audience away with her big voice (which was literally translated by TV Patrol as "malakas na boses" in one of the newest Charice videos uploaded. Side story: their short video clip was courtesy of the Asian Journal. Hehe. Taken with my trusty T70.). For this one, I was near the left side of the stage so I had a very good vantage point.
