“I Will Survive” is a song originally performed by Gloria Gaynor, released in October 1978. It was written by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris. It received the Grammy Award for Best Disco Recording in 1980, the only year that the award was given. It is ranked #489 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. The Song was also listed at #97 on Billboard’s Greatest Songs of all time. It has a lot of remake which includes translations to different languages, notably the Korean version sung by Jin Ju and most recently the Charice Pempengco version.
On her Taking Chances Tour, Celine Dion invited Charice to sing a duet with her at Madison Square Garden on September 15, 2008. They sang “Because You Loved Me” to a sold out crown of 18000 dedicated to Charice’s mom. Before her last song, Celine introduced Charice and tried to calm the nervous Charice in a 7 minute monologue. A Celine Dion fan, “clbmed02” from CelineDionForum posted, “Well, the NY crowd disappointed us. We were sitting on the South side and nobody got up even when Celine came around to our side. There were a bunch of old people behind us they told us to sit down at the intro video. Charice blew the crowd away. She received a long standing ovation and a louder applause than Celine did.” Of course, this would never have happened without the graciousness of Celine Dion and Oprah. Celine has the humility that only the truly great can possess.

Charice link to HD version www.youtube.com Charice sang a duet with Celine Dion in Madison Square Garden last Sept 15. ’08. Charice is a teen singing sensation discovered in YouTube. One of her dreams was to sing with her ultimate idol Celine Dion. This duet is a dream come true to her. She was 16 years old when they did this duet. This has excellent audio as I did my best to get one. This effort is my little contribution to help present Charice at her best, doing what she does best — SINGING. The crowd response captured in the audio might bother some viewers (sometimes you can’t hear Charice & Celine singing because of the loud applauses, roars, etc.) but it shows the major impact Charice made on the audience that magical and historic night. Thank you Celine for being gracious and letting Charice shine that night. Don’t forget to watch Celine’s very touching introduction for Charice before this duet. You can watch that video in my channel or this link: www.youtube.com This video has been rated #10 for the week of Sept 14-21, 2008 by PopTub Ratings Report www.youtube.com Please rate the video after watching. Thanks. Charice sang God Bless America in one of the Pre- Inaugural Balls for Pres. Obama. She received standing ovations.

One of the best renditions of the song. No less sung by the original and of course, our very own – CHARICE. Great vocals!

Facebook.com – Become a Fan! Twitter.com – Follow Us! Charice made a big return to Glee last night, while another guest star said good-bye. Keep on watching for the full story! I’m Joslyn Davis at the ClevverTV headquarters in Hollywood with a recap on the latest episode of Glee, “A Night of Neglect.” The amazeballs factor on the show went through the roof with appearances from both Charice, who returned as New Directions’ top competition Sunshine Corazon, as well as Gwyneth Paltrow, who did her thing as Mr. Shue’s noncommittal substitute-teaching-girlfriend. A Night of Neglect followed the Glee clubbers as they attempted to raise some serious moolah for their big trip to New York, as well as for an another academic competition club that Mike, Artie, Brittany and Tina are a part of. The big group, led by Mr. Shuester puts on a big benefit show with plans to perform songs from artists that have been neglected, which Sunshine tries to be a part of, until Sue finds out and foils the plan. But that’s after we get to hear Charice totally kill it with her take on Celine Dion’s hit-song “All By Myself.” Ultimately, the Night of Neglect is a total mess, because after Sunshine ditches the performance none of her promised-attendees show up. With about 5 people in the audience the fundraiser is a bust, but we still got some amazing performances specifically from Mercedes, who while channeling her inner Aretha Franklin, has a slight lapse into diva-like-behavior. We also get to see a …
