MANILA, Philippines - When the Hitman returns on Oct. 25 at the Araneta Coliseum, David Foster promises to make it another great night of music. To this day, he told The STAR in a phone interview, he replays on his mind the “fantastic audience” and the very warm reception the Filipinos accorded his show David Foster and Friends (DFF) last year.
The David Foster and Friends in October will be topbilled by Michael Bolton, Philip Bailey (of Earth Wind and Fire), Russel Watson, Ashanti and, of course, Charice.
“I want the people to have a great time again. It’s going to be a great night of music,” Foster told The STAR on the phone.
He also intimated that Charice will definitely shine in this concert. “Well, I expect her to rip it off. It’s going to be her last time to be in David Foster and Friends,” Foster said.
“Charice wants to work full time with her career. She’s touring the world. She’s got Glee,” said Foster.
Foster did not elaborate whether or not Charice will still be part of the Season 3 of Glee. Talk is rife, however, that Sunshine Corazon’s character will still be part of the next season of the famed musical TV show.
“Remember that Charice is not a child anymore. She’s got wings. She’s got to fly,” he reasoned.
Foster added that he is thankful to Charice because “she helps me so much in interpreting Celine Dion songs.”
