Celine - Une Seule Fois / Live 2013

Celine and Charice, who's first?!

Celine and Charice, who's first?!

Hello my friends for once more! I would like to know what you think about Charice and the duet she had with Celine at "Because You Loved Me".
I personally do not love Charice's voice. I admit she has got a powerful voice, but I just don't like it. It's a matter of taste. I really hope all the best for her career and I wish I will someday see her as a successful singer because she deserves it..
However, I have recently been rather annoyed to read comments saying that "Charice is the greatest singer of all times" or "Celine Dion does not have a chance when it comes to Charice!"
I would like to know if I am quite mistaken for being annoyed, or if there are other people who feel the same way. I am not saying that I hate Charice and she does not deserve a single word that people say about her. I just feel she is somehow overestimated and I feel offended as well, because Charice is way too young to be compared to Celine Dion.
Celine Dion is a living legend in the Hall of Music and even non-Celine-fans have to admit that. She is an experienced, great and extremely rare singer. On the contrary, Charice is too young to be experienced and great. I also believe her voice is not that rare. So, that was all I wanted to say and I would like to ask you not to be too harsh and quick-to-judge towards me. I would love to know what you think as far as this frequent comparison is concerned. Thanks for reading and for posting!

U are not mistaken for being annoyed. They always say that when it comes to a new singer. So, what I say is Celine is better than Charice, and, Charice is better than Celine at some things. Celine is the biggest selling female artist of all time, and, Charice is her country's best selling female new artist, I think. So, they are both good at what they do. Never say one is better than the other.

Well I have to say that Charice does have talent but she can't sing like Celine....also that was just a once in a lifetime opportunity and it's not like it would jump start a career for her

I just might change my mind and let you in my life forever!

I must say that I have a really big fan of Charice so far. However, I still would not compare her with Celine. To me first of all she is just too new of an artist to even think about comparing with Celine. Second of all, this makes me think of comparing Celine with Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey. In some ways Whitney and Mariah have a technically wider range than Celine, but they cannot even come CLOSE to the sound of Celine's voice or how I feel about her as an artist. There is a lot more that goes into singing and having a singing career than an amazing voice.There are so many factors that go into making Celine number one in her fan's hearts that we cannot compare with Charice, especially this soon in her career. I bring up Whitney and Mariah because it goes into what personal and professional choices they made in their lives. If you look at the content of Celine's songs and how she lives her life it is no contest.

I also must say that I am sick of the comments like Catherine said about Charice because I feel like people are always trying to replace Celine as number one, but the fact is that they are acknowledging Celine as number one when they do this. So I agree that people need to cool it on the comments, but I do think Charice could have an amazing career ahead of her if she makes good choices and gets involved with the right songwriters (stick with David Foster) and lives a positive personal life.

Who knows!! Only time will tell!

I don`t like Charice voice Sad ! I don`t like any other voice! In fact from the first day since I became a Celine Dion fan I can`t listen to another singer without feeling that something is missing. I`m addicted to Celine`s voice !! I can`t go without her songs and she sings so many different types of music, has a varied repertoire that satisfy all tastes and she has something special that touches your heart, something that I can`t find in another singer.

Thank you all for your comments, I am at last glad to see that I'm not insane to be annoyed with these comparisons etc. I do ackowledge that Charice has a good voice, a powerful one and that can turn her into the next star (something I really hope for her!), who knows? I would never replace her with Celine, who, I believe is the number one by far. I also think that Mariah and Whitney deserve much, maybe the equal with Celine. I just cannot judge because I have not been a fanatic of their Music, in contrast with Celine. That's all!
I really hope that Charice will have a great career and a special future, but to me, her voice just does not fulfil my tastes! Thank you all for sharing your thoughts with others and keep posting!

Hello, thanks for your comment! We have much in common. I also cannot listen to another artist's music pleasantly since I realised what Celine means to me and how much I love her her music and her voice.

I had never heard of Charice until I saw her performance with Celine on The Oprah show. The story of her life was sad and I could see how sad Celine was about it too. The fact that her admiration for Celine pulled her through the hard times was heart wrenching and I thought, how wonderful that Celine's music could give someone great hope, but that's our Celine, She has inspired me in so many ways as well. She's one of a kind! ♥ As for Charice herself I thought her voice was truly amazing for her age. I didn't like the fact that there were so many performances of her turning up on the internet of her singing so many Celine songs, dressing like her and even trying to copy some of Celine's photo shoots, but I don't hate her. I just think she should stay true to her own identity if she is really going to make it big in the future!

The greatest reward is the sound of your voice,
The Greatest Voice Ever! ♥

I agree with you that I was a little put off by her doing so many Celine and Whitney songs, but I think she was just trying to show the world how powerful her voice is and she was also doing those songs as part of the David Foster show/album. She is really starting to come into her own though. Her latest couple of singles are very original and I really like them.

To both Dionworshipper and ahorka
I agree with you and it is very comforting that Charice dealt with her difficulties through Celine's music. I know she admires and she loves her very much, but I don't think that she should copy her style and lend her every single song. She has got a powerful voice -at least for her age- and I think she will have a great future, but I'm so annoyed she uses MAINLY Celine's songs to show the power of her voice. She could use other artists's songs and she should try to find her own style. And I do not definetely hate her, I hope all the best for her life and her future career!
