I have this feeling that we didn't see Charice as special simply because she's one too many. Charice is just one among an entire choral group of belters who can do the same thing. Charice is a norm, not an exception. Trust me in this because I have reviewed so many other female Philippine singers who are just as good.
So aside from looking down on our own as a cultural factor, there's this other little thing to consider: in our eyes, she's too common, so we missed the possibility that she could be unique and excellent in the eyes of outsiders.
