Charice Pempengco Makes First Appearance as Sunshine Corazon on Season 2 Debut of GleeCategory: Entertainment
The most awaited second season of the American musical comedy-drama television series Glee finally had its premiere today.
For millions of Filipinos all over the world, Charice Pempengco is a source of pride as she makes her first appearance as the character Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student.
In the episode titled “Audition”, Charice first appeared on-screen for one second humming along with the cast as they sing “Empire State of Mind”.
She let her voice heard first during a bathroom confrontation with Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) where Berry encouraged Sunshine to join glee club, because she thought Sunshine couldn’t speak English and she was adoring her when they were singing “Empire State of Mind”.
But upon hearing her sing “Telephone”, Rachel felt threatened.
After some hitches, Sunshine made her audition and what an audition it was!
Her rendition of Beyonce’s “Listen” gave me goosebumps.
