Charice Exonerated Sam and Her Kapamilya from ASAP Mishap

When Charice “had” to sing with 3 low grade singers last  June 15 ASAP episode where she sang off key, the young diva was bashed with negative comments on TV, radio, and internet. She faced the critics alone and none of her Kapamilya came out to explain what happened nor apologized in any  way. It was all Charice.

On a recent exclusive interview with Charice by abs-cbnNEWS.com, Charice declined the idea that there was any  sabotage involved nor blamed Sam (Concepcio) for the mishap.

“Kasi ganito po ‘yon, last minute nilang sinabi sa akin na bumaba daw ‘yung key noong song. Ang sinend nila sa aking song parang pang-female version. So mataas ‘yon siyempre. So ‘yon ang pinag-aralan ko pagdating ng dressing room doon ko na nakita na nandoon sila ni Sam. Ang sinend nila sa akin (via e-mail na lyrics) na kaming tatlo lang nila Ate (Nikki Gil) and kuya (Billy Crawford).

She added: “Pagdating ko sa backstage sinabi sa amin na binabaan ang key. So nagulat ako, tapos parang wala, kasi natataranta sila so pinarinig lang sa akin through cellphone sa ingay hindi ko namin marinig ng maayos, kaya paglabas ko ‘yon ang nangyari. At sinabi nila na apat na beses na binago-bago hanggang dumating si Sam, inakma nila sa tono ni Sam.”

Translation by ALL ABOUT ASIA:

“What happened was, they(ASAP) told me at the last minute that they would lower the key of the song (Win). The arrangement they sent me was a female version of the song, so it was on the higher key. I rehearsed on what they provided me with. When I arrived at the dressing room, I saw Sam was there too. On the email they sent me, it stated that I will only sing with Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford.”

“When I arrived backstage, they told us that they lowered the key. So, I was surprised, everyone was in panic. They let me listen to the (changed) song via cellphone but I couldn’t really hear it very well due to noise, so when I went out (to the stage) that was the result. They also said that they had to change the song four times until Sam arrived,  they harmonized it to Sam’s tune.”

“Wala akong sinisisi, ang sinabi ko ay inakma nila kay Sam. Hindi ko sinabi na si Sam ang may kasalanan o sinuman ang may kasalanan basta ang sa akin ay hindi nila ako in-update. Pero in-accept naman nila na binago nila ang song at ang lyrics.”

Translation by ALL ABOUT ASIA:

“I did not blame anyone, I only said that they harmonized it to Sam’s tune. I did not say that Sam was at fault nor anyone’s at fault. As for me, I was not updated. They (ASAP) admitted that they changed the song and lyrics.”

Charice also admitted that she did cry at the backstage after the performance. She was worried about what would Ellen, Oprah, America, and other countries’s reactions if they saw her ASAP miscued performance in YoutubeASAP did try to make it up to her by letting her sing “I Have Nothing” … ALONE!

Charice expressed no hard feelings towards anyone nor blame anybody over the ASAP mishap. She thanked her loyal fans for the support and she also thanked her detractors for messing with her. She said, her detractors helped her gain more attention and exposure while her fans proved their loyalty to her. She considers her fans as her friends because they are always there to defend her when someone tries to attack her. ( I should have wrote “we” are always there to defend her)

After careful consideration, I have come up with few realizations. Below are as follows:

1. ASAP and ABS-CBN prioritize their Little Big Star Winner over their 3rd runner up, who brought pride and attention to Philippines. Their LBS winner only sang on an animation soundtrack that did not even make it to  America and they value him more than her.

2. Charice’s loyalty to ABS-CBN is undisputable. She should be given an award  for not turning her back on her Kapamilya, unlike what they did to her.

3. Charice is forgiving. It’s no surprise to me. I know Charice is not only a darn good talent but an admirable human being.

4. Charice is a sweetheart. There is no room for grudge in her heart but only for love and kindness. What happened to her in ASAP was humiliation and yet she came out and say it was not their fault but a mere miscommuniaction.

5. I am Charice‘s friend.  Are you?

  11. 11 peter de guia July 20, 2008 at 8:07 am

    Sino ba itong Liz na nag commnet about Charice…I live here in the States and I don’t know what is going over there in the Philippines…All I know CHARICE is the best singer the country has ever produced. I heard Sam sing when I was there in Manila last May. He was just an average singer. I bought Charice CD.
    The CD was poorly arranged. Probably ABS CBN produced the CD in a hurry. I hope Charice will do another recording with another
    record company if possible here in the States.
    I stopped subscribing ABS CBN The Filipino Channel long time ago.
    I’m glad I did. ABS CBN has to blame for whatever happened singing with those guys.

  12. 13 jr July 22, 2008 at 10:33 am

    wag mo na kilalanin yang liz n yan.
    1.)isa ata yang fans ni DOG.. o kya ni KUNG FU pandekoko!! hahahaha!!

    ang galing ni charice sa Italy….superb singer…who can beat that performance…eh mismong si andrea bocelli napahanga ni charice…nasan na ang mga Kungfu panda na sinasabi nila…maglaway na lang kayo sa inggit kay charice

  15. 16 Joferr37 July 23, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    I feel sorry for those singers in the Philippines because they will never get too far compared to Charice. Not to mention their names but their singing ability is only for local Philippine audience. Charice has been singing with the best in the world and only the best get invited. You can keep pushing them but you cant deny that only Charise has made it worldwide because she has the best talent.

  16. 17 Joferr37 July 23, 2008 at 10:24 pm

    by the way, can you tell me who invited your idols and where? i guess nobody because they are not that talented unlike Charise. YOu can bitch as long as you want but you cant deny that Charise achievement is more than enough to match those singers who’ve been singing more than 20 years whom couldnt even achieved.

  17. 18 Paku- South Africa July 29, 2008 at 7:28 am

    believe in me fellas, south africa is absoluteley blown away by Charice’s talent. Philipine should be proud of her coz u know what this mean? she has put Phillipine on a map. you go girl, you go girl. this is big, i mean, imagine taking Oprah’s breath away. this is big. we love you Charice. i agree, people who critise Charice coz they are envious, they must get outta here.

  18. 19 cui July 30, 2008 at 4:09 am

    charice, record your album now, i mean the international album not from star records.

  19. 20 samie July 31, 2008 at 8:52 am

    I believe na marami pang mas magandang boses kesa kay Charice, we must admit that. Ang edge niya over other singers ay dahil sa kumanta siya sa STAR KING ng Korea which paved the way for her at syang rason ba’t siya nakilala ng mga taga-ibang bansa. Sigurado naman kung hindi siya naging kontestant dun hindi siya makilala nina Oprah, Ellen diba?

  20. 21 samie July 31, 2008 at 8:54 am

    dont get me wrong, im not Charice hater or a fan…observation ko lang yun. siguro kung sumali si sheryn regis or sarah geronimo or rachelle ann go baka sila ngayon ang tinawagan nina oprah at ellen…

  21. 22 chingkamas August 2, 2008 at 3:33 pm

  32. 33 ALL ABOUT ASIA August 8, 2008 at 3:42 am

    I feel so sorry for you Marie. You are either blind, deaf, or plain stupid. You are such in great denial. Everything you say against Charice is the complete opposite.

    You can stick with your Sam girl, you don’t have to stress your brain out thinking of stupid things to say.

    Oh, by the way, watch that wrinkles coming out of your forehead. Remember, too much jealousy will lead to an early grave.

  33. 34 HAHA! August 8, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    LOL!

    Well said ALL ABOUT ASIA.

    Marie, you are one stupid bi__ch

  34. 35 _Abby_Lil Gangsta_ September 8, 2008 at 7:52 am

    Charice, hindi naman sa nilalait kita but be humble naman huh.. Wag ka pakitang tao dahil mas maganda if you show up yourself to everybody kung sino ka ba talaga kahit sa harap at likod ng camera… Un lang tsaka sana kahit gaano kataas ang marating mo sa buhay, keep your feet glued on the ground…

  35. 36 jr September 14, 2008 at 10:29 am

    hmm.. sa tingin ko di xia mayabang.. bakit nga ba natin cnsbhng mayabang ang isang tao.. bakit di tau tumingin sa sarili natin.. sa tingin ko dahil sa sobrang inggit.. kaya naninira ng tao.. o kya namn mapaghanap ng kapintasan ng ibang tao.. kc meron tau iba hinahangaan.. tama ba? ayaw natin masapawan ung tao na hinahangaan natin.. kaya tau naninira ng kapwa natin.. sana matanggal na ung pgcCRAB MENTALITY!! no care ako kung cno man yang charice sam at kung cno pa…!! para skn lahat cla tao.. na dapat irespeto..!!

  36. 37 peter de guia September 26, 2008 at 11:53 am

    many singers in the philippines, but most of them
    are not for commercial, not like charice.. her voice can sell in america and any where in the world…she has a very distinguised voice that’s why Ophrah, David Foster like her a lot … she has the
    quality of a true diva… inggit lang kayo mga tinamaan kayo ng lintik..
    mga pilipino ingetero… tamaaan sana kayo ng kidlat…

  37. 38 ROE SOTTO November 30, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    Hey guys1 chill out! you dont have to fight…the reality is CHARICE made it to the top, everyone thied their best as a singer, but the most famous now is “CHARICE”…If you’re a filipino , you must be proud & thankful….if your feeling is opposite i think something’s wrong w/ you…maybe insulted, jelous or you are someone who has a typical “CRAB MENTALITY”…that’s not good…You have to be proud of your people’s achievements…

  38. 39 patsrick December 3, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    As a Filipino, Im so proud of Charice, as she is putting the Philippines in a good map with her talent. All the haters from Pinas, I hope can join her fans worldwide. I don’t think their hang-up is with Charice but with rival fans which is OK. Just don’t take it out on her. She’s still a child that’s doing our country proud. Just imagine how much better she has become just to be on par with the Americans. This is a rare and only moment when a Filipina has the potential to get to such high a level. Let’s just forget our differences and support her for the sake of our country. After all the Americans, Italians, Koreans, Canadians, Europeans are rooting for her. Us Filipinos should too.

  39. 40 bukog December 31, 2008 at 10:37 am

    i dunno..i just dont like the way she speaks…and the look on her face..its so arrogant..it just my opinion

    i like leah salonga better..beacuse she speaks fluent english and her voice is so clear..like a princess…it just so nice to listen so relaxing…

    i guess i just like that ype of music

    charice voice for me is irratating…its so loud
    ..i like leahs voice –very superb..it reminds me of fairyland
    ..again its just my opinion

  40. 41 jenny beeb nicole January 23, 2010 at 10:47 am

  41. 42 Aikahh April 30, 2010 at 12:54 am

    Haha. DUdes ngayon ko lang toh nabasa =)))
    I agree with Marie, halos tama naman lahat sinabi nya e. Kung magaling nga syang singer, kahit last minute na, magegetz nya kahit may binago pa. Yun ang tunay na HIGH GRADE SINGER :))) In this case, sinisi pa ni Charice yung co-singers nya that time. NAMAAAN :”)))

    And please be humble Charice =) Not because sikat ka na sa ibang bansa e, kaya mo nang laitin ang ibang singers here in the Philippines. Remember, TINULUNGAN ka lang rin kaya ka sumikat. Hindi mismo ikaw ang dahilang ng stardom mo :>

    And i think the author is too unfair. Dapat naman sigurong galangin sina SAM, BILLY and NIKKI diba :)) And hello, hindi naman binabayaran ni Charice ang ASAP so bakit mo sisisihin si Sam kung pinili din shang kumanta that time? 🙂

  42. 43 c April 30, 2010 at 1:39 am

    bad bad. it’s true that ABS – CBN prioritize Sam, Actually it’s the Damn Girls fault. Pinakita sa Teaser na nandun si Sam. So what do you expect? at tama, kung magaling na singer ka, even the last SECOND changes, makakaya mong gawan ng paraan. masyado xang kabado kasi baka may masabi si Ellen, haha! palibhasa yung mga tao lang sa ibang bansa yung bumubuhay sa career nya.

    try to imagine the situation in reverse. what if you are a fan of Billy Crawford, Nikki Gil, or Sam C? what will you feel after reading this article? at sinabihan pa silang low grade singers. kilalanin nyo muna sila. bago niyo husgahan.

    BILLY CRAWFORD – became known in Europe and Asia.

    NIKKI GIL – Famous Singer- song writer, VJ, Actress, Dancer and Role Model.

    SAM CONCEPCION – ULTIMATE TEEN POP IDOL – singer, dancer, actor, host, performer and youth Role MODEL. sikat sa INDONESIA at sa SARILING BANSA!

    CHARICE – sikat sa ibang bansa, pero dito sa pinas sikat ba siya?

    *kaya lalong sumasama ang tingin ng mga pinoy kay charice is because sa masasamang ugali ng mga fans niya!

    sa gumawa ng article na to, lalo mo lang pinakita na bastos kayong mga fans! unang sentence palang nandun na yung ugali.

    wag masyado mapangmata.

    i like charice so much before nung nsa LBS pa siya, pero nung pasikat na, may ugali pala, the more the sisikat siya, the more na lalaki ang ulo.
