MANILA —Reacting to comments made by both her fans and critics, Filipino singer Charice explained why she took her sound down a different path.
On Friday’s ABS-CBN morning talk show “Kris TV”, Charice said she wants to avoid losing her voice, which she said may happen if she continues to be a “belter.”
“I don’t want the time to come when I lost my voice,” said Charice, who hit both high and low notes with ease.
“As a musician, I’d like to pursue a particular genre that suits me. I like the R&B that is quite smooth. Just like the way I did a while ago; even if I sing Tagalog songs I want the people to feel the fine tune,” she added.
“Kris TV” host Kris Aquino took note that Charice’s preferences in music and fashion have changed and asked Charice if it was part of her “natural evolution in growing up.”
Initially known for her long black locks, Charice now has blonde hair and tattoos.
In an interview on “The Buzz” last Sunday, Charice maintained that she is the same person that Filipinos used to know despite her new look.
“I think what hurts is when people judge me, though they don’t know me. Even those who know me also judge me. It’s not because I have changed hair style, because I wear a tattoo I am now different. I haven’t changed,” she said in an interview.
Charice held a successful concert in Hawaii last month. — Agencies
