We have not yet seen any uploaded videos of Charice's September 29 concert in Qatar.

We do know however some if not all of the songs she sang based on the updates tweeted by Johnny de Mesa: Pyramid; covers of Lady Gaga (probably Telephone), Whitney Houston (I Will Always Love You?), I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys, Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars, Price Tag by Jessie J, Michael Jackson (Billie Jean and The Way You Make Me Feel?), All By Myself by Celine Dion; and from her new album, Before It Explodes (and more, presumably).

According to a report from ABS-CBN News:
DOHA, Qatar - Charice wowed fans here in Doha with her singing prowess, although many felt shortchanged by the brief performance.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Bilal Taha, organizer of the concert, explained it was Charice's first solo concert, adding it may be too early to expect the teen singer to perform for 2 hours.

“It’s her first solo concert....She performed today, I think, 70 minutes," Taha said.

Despite this, fans of the singer were overwhelmed after seeing their idol up, close and personal.

Charice extended her appreciation to those who watched her show, especially her kababayans.

“Mahal ko po kayo, thank you so much for coming here. First of all, I am very very honored to perform here tonight. Thank you so much for having me here. To all the people behind the show, thank you so much for having me here. It's such an honor, thank you po, whoever you are, non-Filipinos, Filipinos, kabayan, maraming-maraming salamat po. Thank you so much,” she said.

Taha also praised Charice for her talent as a singer and for being professional.

“Well, I’m very surprised with Charice's performance. She really fulfills what she promises; [she has a] really amazing voice," he said.

Taha added: "I noticed that Charice, for Filipinos, is not a Filipina superstar, she’s an international superstar...She's a different kind compared to Sarah Geronimo or many other famous singers in the Philippines...Charice is an international superstar. She’s already like half-Filipina, half-American, a Fil-Am. She represents not only the Philippines, she represents the United States and the Philippines”
