MANILA, Philippines - It's nonstop blessings for international singing sensation Charice as she ranked number 4 in US Billboard's Top Stars Under 21.

According to the music site, the 21 young artists who are below 21 years old were chosen for "their potential to rule the pop culture zeitgeist over the next 12 months."
"yey! no.4 baby!
Billboard's Top Stars Under 21 Years Old!...," Charice tweeted.
Billboard explained that the help of Oprah Winfrey and the US hit musical series "Glee" season 2 make Charice "hot."
"Why She's Hot: Oprah and "Glee": They're two of TV's most powerful zeitgeist-definers, and both have fallen head over heels for Charice Pempengco. Credit the Queen of All Media for plucking the Filipina sensation from obscurity two years ago and introducing her to Celine Dion.
"The hype finally paid off this spring, when Charice debuted in the Billboard 200 top 10 with her first US album. But it's Fox's high school musical hit, in which she now plays a foreign exchange student with killer pipes to match Rachel Berry's, where Charice will show millions of Gleeks that she can out-sing the best of them," the article said.
