Charice Enters Guinness World RecordsBelieve it or not, Charice is one of the latest entries in the current edition of the Guinness World Records. The international singing sensation should be a source of Filipino pride anew because of this feat. After a series of negative controversies about her and her decision to ‘come out,’ she is back to ‘wow’ everyone.
Are you wondering what record she has set to make it to the list of the new entries on Guinness? No, she is not yet the best selling artist of all time. She also did not reach the highest singing note. She was listed in the record as the ‘youngest winning judge’ in a singing or reality show worldwide.
Thanks to ABS-CBN’s local adaptation of the reality singing contest ‘The X Factor Philippines.’ The 58-year-old world book of records has recognized Charice’s single-season stint at the local version of ‘The X Factor.’
Youngest reality show judge
Charice was the youngest of the local judges, which also included Pilita Corales, Martin Nievera, and Gary Valenciano. She mentored KZ Tandingan, who was eventually declared as the first ever winner of the local version of the competition.
In the Guinness entry, Charice was 20 years old and 150 days old last year, when she served as the mentor of a contestant who later emerged as the big winner of the talent show. The grand finals of ‘The X Factor Philippines’ was telecast on October 7, 2012.
This may not be her first ever international recognition. However, Charice has remained ecstatic about this latest feat she has obtained as a singer. It could be recalled that it was in the same competition where she met Alyssa Quijano, who later became her girlfriend (until this day).
Love of her life
It turned out that Charice and Alyssa had known each other years before because they were often contestants in singing competitions, where Charice almost always wins. Several months ago, Charice braced headlines in the country when she announced that she is a lesbian. This admission caused her falling out with her family, who had been advising her not to come out.
Charice is currently out of the country to do a series of shows in North America. She is set to return home this month. She would also launch her new local album sometime this month.
