Note To God

To say that Charice (Pempengco) has an incredible voice would be a huge understatement! Charice is an 18 year old recording artist from the Philippines. Charice started out her singing career by entering amateur singing contests at the age of 7. Raised by a single mother, she entered the contests to help support her family. It is reported that between the ages of 7 and 12 she entered over 100 contests.

At the age of 12 – she joined a show in the Philippine’s (Little Big Star) that is just like our American Idol and she took 3rd place. Not much happened after that until two years later when an avid fan began to post videos of her singing on YouTube and almost instantly she became an overnight phenomenon.

A lot has happened in the four short years that followed. She has recorded cd’s, sung around the world before packed audiences, dignitaries, presidents and royalty.

Here she sings the beautiful ballad “Note To God” which was written by acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren. The ice skater in this video is 2006 Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen.

Note to God lyrics:

If 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, cause love is overdue
And it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on

If I wrote a note to God
I’d say please help us find a 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, cause 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
Cause it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on


We can’t do it on our own


(Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love, cause love is overdue)
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help

Grant us the faith to carry on
Hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on

(No)We can’t do it on our own


If I wrote a note to God

    Just what I needed to lift up my Faith today.

  17. Diane Knoll says:

    What a blessing these young lady’s are.

  18. You are God’s workman and you have allowed Him to fashion you to be who you are today. He is the Potter and you are the lump of clay (which is of no use without the work of Emanuel in you). God is wonderful and stay humble and be a bond slave just like our LJC who fulfill the Father’s will for His pleasure and desire. Continue to Bless all of God’s creation with the Gift that He has given you.

  33. christine says:

    There is a young 7yr old Mexican girl who sings this song and has an extraordinary voice and also has her own website. I thought this video was going to be her and was surprised to find this young woman singing the same song.

    This Philipino girls also sings this song beautifully and I think the skater detracts from the video which would be more powerful without the skater.

  34. Harry says:

    go go go charice..proclaim the word of God thru your powerful voice..more power from the Philippines

  35. Miriam says:

    Such an inspirational song, both are amazing – but could have been so much beautiful, and actions are felt better, if performed separately? But overall. flawless!

  36. Amparo says:

    Charice has a voice of the angels. This song has such a wonderful meaning. It is great to see someone use their God given talent to not only glorify our Saviour but to bless so many people. Thanks to her many will get the message of salvation. God is in control and uses everyone for His Glory. Thanks for such a wonderful blessing.

  38. jean c. says:

    Thank you so much for using your beautiful voice and for a beautiful and blessed message.
    God willing, you can continue to sing with all the feeling you showed in this beautiful video.
    Congratulations to you both, and the skater does not distract from the singing..they for sure, go together!
    Thanks to both of you for sharing you beautiful voice and also the very talented skater.
