David Foster likens Charice to Michael Jackson!

The Philippines singing sensation Charice is on the road to becoming an Asian superstar in the United States.

This is what legendary songwriter and producer David Foster believes.

In an article published by the Associated Press, Foster was quoted as saying, "being a great singer is not enough, and she has the entire package".

Foster, Charice's mentor, likened her to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson.

"She's a little bit like Michael Jackson in the head...Michael Jackson was very soft-spoken and quiet and all that, but he was genius inside his head. He knew exactly where he was going, and she truly is the master of her own destiny," Foster said in the article.

On May 11, Charice appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" for the 4th time--this time to launch her debut self-titled album.

Charice's first global single "Pyramid," is reportedly No. 2 on the dance charts.

Foster told AP that he is aware of the challenge to make a hit and that Charice has a lot to add to the scene.

Likewise, Charice is also prepared to hurdle challenges to capture the US audience.

"It's really, really hard ... there's a lot of great pop stars here. ... They're all talented," she said.

"I don't know if Americans are going to love me because I'm from another country," Charice said to AP.
