MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED/CORRECTED) – International singing sensation Charice will be performing with Aeta singing boy Arjohn Gilbert in her solo concert in December, not tonight during "The Hitman Returns: David Foster and Friends" as he had expected.
This was confirmed to abs-cbnNEWS.com by Gilbert’s manager, Joy Maranan.
“Ang sabi ni Charice, magpeperform si Gilbert sa December 2, sa major concert niya,” she said.
Maranan said Gilbert will attend tonight's concert at the Araneta Coliseum as a special guest.
Gilbert had told abs-cbnNEWS.com early Tuesday morning that he would be performing with Charice.
Gilbert had said he prepared for tonight's show to impress Charice as well as other international artists.
"Masaya po ako. Talagang sobrang saya. Parang hindi ako nakatulog sa excitement," Gilbert had said. He even attended voice and dance lessons for the concert.
Last August, Charice asked her fans to find the talented Aeta boy from Clark, Pampanga.
Charice invited Gilbert to perform with her after she saw a video of the latter singing Justin Bieber's hits.
