Charice's summer of dreams didn't end there—after her performance, she received a surprise call from world-famous singer Andrea Bocelli. Within weeks, Charice was on her way to Italy to meet Andrea and sing a special duet with the renowned tenor. "That's really a dream come true for me," she says. "I really love Andrea Bocelli because he's my idol. When I was younger, I'm always drawing some things like me singing with Celine and me singing with Mr. Andrea Bocelli."
More than 8,000 people gathered in the Tuscan countryside near Andrea's hometown for the exclusive concert. Together, they sang "The Prayer," a song that holds special meaning for Charice. "I think that God is always listening to all my prayers, and I have so many dreams in my life," she says. "That's why I'm always praying that someday I'm going to achieve all my dreams."
