MANILA, Philippines - A talented Aeta boy from Clark, Pampanga extended his appreciation to Charice for inviting him to perform in the latter's upcoming Manila concert.

In a video recorded by the Chasters, Charice's fans, Arjohn Gilbert called the international Filipina singing sensation the "most talented singer."

"Thank you Charice Pempengco [for inviting me] to your show. Maraming maraming salamat sa iyo, sana makasama kita sa international na album, duet tayo," he said.

"Ate Charice, sana pagbutihin mo pa ang pagkanta, ikaw lang ang most talented singer [internationally]. Maraming salamat and God bless you."

Last Saturday, Charice invited Gilbert to perform with her onstage after she saw a video of the latter singing Justin Bieber's hits.

"Arjohn, next time I do my own show in the Philippines, I would love for you to come and perform with me! youtube.com/watch?v=THKGIA…" Charice tweeted.

She then asked her fans to find Arjohn to let him know that he will be part of her show before the year ends.

"@iChasterJen definitely this year. bago mag-end. Kaya sana malaman nya na makakasama sya. :)," she said.

In 2009, Gilbert was featured in a docu-educational and lifestyle public affairs television show.
