The management of ABS-CBN is just as excited as the viewing public for the airing of “Got To Believe.” There is no truth to speculations that the airing was postponed because management was disappointed with the program. In fact, the TV series starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernado thrilled and impressed the management.
In as much as management wants to air it, it has decided to postpone the airing until enough episodes are canned. ABS-CBN firmly believes that “Got To Believe” will offer a new experience to TV viewers and looks forward to airing it soon.

We f****ng love this girl so hard. Charice started performing as a child, participating in nearly 100 contests and eventually making it to the final rounds of Little Big Star in 2005. Her big debut actually came via YouTube about two years later when Dave Dueñas' posting of Charice's performance videos racked up over 15 million hits, making her an official Internet Sensation. From there things basically took off - she made a demo with Ten Songs/Productions in Sweden, appeared on South Korean talent show Star King and eventually made her first trip to the United States in December 2007 to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Her debut album, Charice, was released in May 2008 and would eventually go platinum in The Philippines. Oprah Winfrey featured Charice in her "World's Most Talented Kids" episode which led to Charice working with music producer David Foster, which led to her appearing on Hitman: David Foster and Friends, which became a thing on PBS, apparently, and also at some point Oprah called Charice 'the most talented girl in the world.'
"Charice performed at Andrea Bocelli's birthday concert and performed with Celine Dion and by 2009 was performing at US presidential pre-inaugural events and pre-Oscar award events and at major league baseball opening games. (In 2010, she'd sing the Philippine National Anthem at the inauguration of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III.)
“She released her second, 22-track album, My Inspiration, in May 2009, which included a duet with her Mom, which is adorable. The album went platinum in The Philippines and her first single debuted high on U.S. and Canadian Billboard charts. Her international debut album Charice, released May 2010, reached #8 on the Billboard charts and she popped up all over the U.S., like that time she was on Oprah with Justin Bieber and that time she played Sunshine Corazon in Season Two of Glee.
“Charice has been struggling with her family since coming out a month ago, but is finding love/happiness with her girlfriend Alyssa Quijano, who sings in the female vocal group AKA Jam and was a contestant on The X Factor Philippines, where Charice was a judge on the show. She's currently working on her third studio album, which she says will contain a lot of cover songs and has returned to twitter on a new handle and her fans remain behind her. Maybe she should return to Glee and date Santana or something. OH MY GOD WHAT IF SHE RETURNED TO GLEE AND DATED SANTANA OR SOMETHING.”
