Charice has left for the US on Monday (August 5) morning for her first major performance after her much-publicized “coming out” as a lesbian.

 

The international singing sensation is set to perform at the 2013 Major League Baseball Beacon Awards Luncheon in Chicago, Illinois on Aug. 24.

According to reports, Charice will be singing the US anthem “Star-Spangled Banner” before attendees that include 2013 MLB Beacon Awardees Aretha Franklin and Bo Jackson.

In a report by “Kape at Balita,” Monday, Charice expressed excitement to see and perform for her US fans again.

“I’m very excited kasi first time ko na – kasi ite-televise ’yun eh, ’yong performance ko eh – mag-a-appear, you know, since nag-come out ako (as a lesbian),” the “Pyramid” hitmaker said in the interview at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 before her departure.

Charice is also hoping to touch base with mentor-turned-godmother Oprah Winfrey, who is set to grace the awards luncheon, the same “Kape at Balita” report added

The American talk show host-producer had once referred to the YouTube phenomenon Charice as “the most talented girl in the world.” Oprah’s self-titled program is one of handful of shows that paved way for Charice to break into the international music scene back in 2008.

The former “Glee” guest star will be staying in the US for about a month for other projects and engagements. (Manila Bulletin)
