Add another Asian face on the hit musical dramedy Glee for next season, premiering in the fall. This time, it’s YouTube teen sensation Charice Pempengco, the pint-sized cutie with the voice of a diva.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the 18-year-old Filipina will be playing a foreign exchange student whose amazing voice threatens queen Glee bee Rachel (Lea Michele).
She just released her self-titled debut album last month, where it ranked eighth in the Billboard Top 200.
Check her out as a 15-year-old.
And then her appearance on Ellen, her U.S. debut.
I think Charice is a perfect addition to Glee. Her voice really is amazing. What do you think? Will you watch?
