Beauty Queen-Actress Turned Singer Charo Laude Launches Inspirational Christmas Single

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"I can't believe I'm already a singer!" proudly exclaims Charo Laude Calalo, also the reigning Mrs. Philippines 2019, during her recent singles launch held at  Supreme Restobar (fornerly Ka Freddie's) along Tomas Morato in Quezon City. 

She sang the carrier single of an upcoming Christmas album. "Himala'y Laganap", an original composition by Theresa Aguilar & Abe Hipolito, happend to be timely to what we are experiencing right now with the health pandemic and series of disaster typhoons. 

Her inspirational single is also a gift of hope that no matter what happens, one must never lose faith for a miracle. 

Another Christmas classic song that Ms  Charo is fond is "Miss Kita Kung Christmas", popularly covered by her singing idol, Sharon Cuneta, Sarah Geronimo with a version by Carol Banawa as well. 

“Actually hindi ako pressured na ikumpara ang version ko kila Sharon or Sarah G kasi mga idol ko sila. Sabi ko nga noon kapag naging singer ako, gusto kong maging tulad nila Sharon or Sarah Geronimo. I am not pressured at all."

Ms. Charo also rendered her cover version of "Miss Kita Kung Christmas" to the delight of the media and other guests. She gave justice to the iconic song originally sang by another golden actress, Amalia Fuentes. 

She says Christmas is very important to Filipinos because we have the longest Yuletide season and kapag Pasko, it's all about being together as a family. Her clan is originally from Tanauan, Batangas. 

"I recorded the song only last October, so it's very fresh. We plan to release a CD January next year that will feature more original songs and some covers."

We also asked Ms Charo what her fondest Christmas memories are and the Yuletide song she wished she personally composed. 

The 44 year old beauty queen was also part of the highly-rated Kapamilya afternoon teleserye “Kadenang Ginto.” A former Binibining Pilipinas candidate, Ms Charo  was a proud  member of the German Moreno's teen variety program “That’s Entertainment” on GMA 7. Her batchmates in the daily show include actress-beauty queen Patricia Javier and now Manila Mayor Isko "Yorme" Moreno..

Aside from her blooming singing career, Ms. Charo is the national director for the Mrs Universe Philippines pageant, which annually renews their local franchise. 

During the Mrs. Universe finals held in China, Ms.Charo bagged the special award Mrs. Universe Popularity 2019 and made it in the top 18 semi-finalists out of 94 candidates.

“Pero next year na ang pageant. Gusto kong ma-feel din ng mga contestants ang live pageant show,” she points out.

The "Himala'y Laganap" single launch was hosted by singer Lance Raymundo who also informed Ms Charo that his older singer-brother Ronnie was impressed with her singing and intends to collaborate a song with her soon to the utmost surprise and appreciation of a our singing beauty queen!
