Charice Pempengco to join the cast of GLEE

Philippine teen singing sensation Charice Pempengco will be joining the cast of GLEE, the hit musical TV series for its Season 2. What’s this got to do with new media?

The thing is that Charice Pempengco was relatively unknown and shot to fame because of Youtube.  I have written many previous posts on how Youtube and other new media sites have helped to launch the careers of many artistes and Charice is yet another one.

Since gaining her Youtube fame, she has gone on to be invited to talk shows with hosts such as  Oprah and Ellen, which has undoubtedly catapulted her to greater heights!

How she got to be on GLEE is quite a strange story. Apparently, she heard rumours that she was going to be on GLEE and after hearing them,  decided to audition for the show and promptly got the part.

And how did we learn about her new role – from her use of new media of course. She announced it on Twitter.

Here’s another clip of her exceptional talent!
