Charice Performs Note to God at The Oprah Show

If I wrote a note to God
I’d say please help us find our way
End all the bitterness, put some tenderness in our hearts

Take note: Charice’s first international debut single, “Note To God” is now #1 in Amazon MP3 downloads all in one day. That is some kind of a record , don’t you think? The song is also #5 in iTunes while Lady gaga in 6th and Beyonce in 9

What an awesome, beautiful voice from a small big singer with a very big heart and big dreams. When she sang this song, I had goosebumps all over. Charice is amazingly brilliant. Yes, Charice Pempengco now goes by one name Charice in her career in Hollywood, like Jojo and Beyonce. Note To God was written by bestselling songwriter Diane Warren and produced by David Foster. The song was originally recorded by pop singer JoJo in 2006. This time I am enamored by such amazing vocal control, The “birit” style is not so dominant now but I notice her low notes vastly improved in a span of two years … truly AMAZING! Charice’s performance is part of a special episode marking the finale of ““Oprah’s Search for the World’s Smartest and Most Talented Kids”.

Here are the lyrics of this beautiful song which can even be a prayer.

f I wrote a note to God
I would speak what’s in my soul
I’d ask for all the hate to be swept away
For love to overflow

If I wrote a note to God
I’d pour my heart out on each page
I’d ask for war to end
And for peace to mend this world
I’d say, I’d say, I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love ‘coz love is overdue
And it seems like so much is goin’ wrong
On this road we’re on

If I wrote a note to God
I’d say please help us find the way
End all the bitterness, put some tenderness in our hearts
I’d say, I’d say, I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love ‘coz love is overdue
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you

Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
‘Coz it seems like so much is goin’ wrong
On this road we’re on

No, no, no
We can’t do this on our own
So, so

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love ‘coz love is overdue
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you

Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
‘Coz it seems like so much is goin’ wrong
On this road we’re on

No, no, no
We can’t do this on our own
So, so

If I wrote a note to God

——

Charice really poured her heart and soul while singing this song. I can feel the message of every word she sang. She must have felt it so much because you can see her tears glisten on her eyes as she finished her performance. Such heartfelt gratitude to God, perhaps?

Hope, Strength, Love which we all need in our lives. Especially now, all these messages ring true to our hearts:

Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone

Give us the strength to make it through

Help us find love cause love is over due

This is an inspirational song that I wouldn’t mind getting stuck in my mind just so I have the faith, strength, faith and love to go through the day.

You can download the mp3 at itunes. Too bad, I couldn’t buy in itunes since I can only buy it in Philippine stores.

    Charice’s rendition of the song is amazing! I bought the mp3 file as soon as it became available at Amazon.com. Her lyrics is a little different from the posted one. God bless you Charice!
