It is none other than Charity Grace Bueno a hidden gem of the pop music world now coming out to make her official debut.
Charity was born in Seattle, Washington, USA to a Filipina mother and started singing at the age of 18 months old. Her first musical solo was at the age of two years old at a church service.

As a singer she had performed solos for countless concerts sometimes in front of crowds up to tens of thousands of people like in the Philippine's 100 year independence day anniversary special on ABS-CBN TV. She was the lead role of "Annie" for Repertory Philippines musical theater show Annie (similar to Philippine Broadway) originated 20 years before by the famous Tony award winning actress Lea Salonga.
