You'll be seeing a lot more of Filipino singing sensation Charice Pempengco. Billionaire talk show diva Oprah Winfrey has agreed to manage the career of the 16-year-old singer in the US.

Charice will remain under her local management in the Philippines, according to Nixon Sy, head of the Star Records which signed Pempengco to a recording contract.

Charice recently blew the roof off of Madison Square Garden when she performed a duet with Celine Dion singing Dion's hit "Because You Loved Me".

Charice has performed twice on Oprah's show, including last week when Oprah surprised her by introducing her to Celine Dion via video conference. Celine then invited the youngster to perform with her at her MSG show.

Charice became an instant celebrity when her performances featuring her powerful voice were uploaded on YouTube.

    LOL @ MizzDallas.....Girl i was thinking the same thing....Im about to fall out this seat.

  • 2bme

    I really don't see Oprah with temperment for management..especially in the music business..good luck w/that

  • pointhimout

    and she picks a foreigner to manage instead of an up and coming rapper from around the way in chicago who keeps it real. hater.


    I watched that show.. Oprah didn't agree on the show to manage this singing sensation, was this finalized after the show?? I actually thought the man who was in the audience was managing her, I forget his name but it was never once stated that Oprah would take on that task..

    Sing A-Long with me:

    Oprah loves the little children, all over the world, they are precious in her sight whether, yellow or white. Oprah loves the little children of the world.

    She just so precious.

  • Bird

    How on earth could Oprah possibly have time to manage someone? This sounds suspect.

  • bloggergirlz

    @prynsexxx : classic!

  • sdsthomas

    Oprah herself is suspect. That girls voice is magnificent. Her performance with Dion gave me chills.

  • karaz

    You are now officially my friend in my head.

  • blkdiamonn

    WOW..I got chills too! She is going to go ver far...her voice is amazing!! She actually sounds like Celine a bit and she's only 16yrs old. She had a lot of grace and confidence to be perforiming in front of all those pl too. Oprah knows what shes doing!!

    that girl can sing. i started watching her on youtube a long time ago. i'm surprised it took this long for someone to pick her up. i hope we don't see her naked on the cover of vibe or coked out and baldhead with her twat showing for the media. maybe she'll be the next whitney cause i've only seen her sing black songs.

    lmao at slima (#15)!
