MANILA – As part of the 2015 HitMan David Foster and Friends Asia Tour, Charice Pempengco performed with her godfather – well-renowned music producer and scriptwriter David Foster – in his concert held last week at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“It’s so great to be with you on stage again. This audience (pointing to Filipino concertgoers) is so amazing! They love music!” Foster said when Charice joined him onstage.
Aside from Charice, other Filipino guest performers in the concert were Asia’s Got Talent finalist Gerphil Flores and singer Jason Dy.
“It’s great to be back here in the Philippines after four years because Filipinos love music as much as I do,” Foster said in a Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) report.
The 15-time Grammy award winner then started his show by performing the 1988 Winter Olympics’ theme song. Last week’s concert was his third concert in the Philippines.
Meanwhile, in an earlier interview, the 15-time Grammy award winner admitted that Charice ‘has some personal issues that she has to overcome and she’s trying to get over a decision.’ He also respected her change in music style.
“People like Charice, Celine, and Josh, and Buble, Bryan Adams, and all the other people I started out with, they get their own mind. And so they should. The good ones do,” Foster said, adding that he admired her for writing her own songs.
