Manila - The Philippines' international singing sensation Charice showed her love to her Filipino fans by giving donations to victims of tropical storm Ondoy, which flooded the country last Saturday (September 26).

In a message sent to abs-cbnNEWS.com, Charice said she already extended her help to her fellow kababayans with the help of her sponsors.

"Hi po. Nagbigay na po ako ng donation, and tumulong din po mga sponsors ko po para sa mga Pinoy na nasalanta ng bagyo," Charice said.

The pint-sized artist also gave her deepest condolences to all Filipinos who lost not only material things but also loved ones.

"Gusto ko lang din pong sabihin na condolence po sa mga tao po na nawalan ng mahal sa buhay dahil sa bagyo," Charice added.

The YouTube sensation said that she's really blessed and thankful that God spared her relatives and friends from the wrath of Ondoy, especially those who are living in their province Laguna and in Tagaytay.

'Another standing ovation'


Meanwhile, Charice once again made the Filipinos proud as she got another standing ovation from her performance at the Wynn Las Vegas casino last Saturday.

Charice, accompanied by popular songwriter-musician David Foster, performed at a benefit concert produced by retired tennis star Andre Agassi.

Reports said that the concert, which raised almost $8 million, would support Agassi's foundation.

In an interview before the show, Charice said that she was so thrilled to perform another Lady Gaga song.

During the event, Charice first sang her first international single "Note To God," which she dedicated to all the victims of Ondoy.

After her inspirational hit, Charice then performed her version of Lady Gaga's hit "Just Dance."

Charice is finishing her first international CD. She is also gearing up for another show with David Fosters and friends.
