    "Glee" cast member Charice will perform in Honolulu Nov. 3 at the Blaisdell Arena.

International pop star Charice, best known to American audiences from her appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and as Sunshine Corazon in “Glee,” is bringing her “Infinity Tour with Charice” to Hawaii for a one-nighter Nov. 3 in Blaisdell Arena.

The 20-year-old singer is promoting her second internationally released studio album, “Infinity,” which came out in Japan in 2011 and was released here this year.

Born Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco on May 10, 1992, in the Philippines, she launched her career singing in local talent contests at the age of 7.

She made her national debut in the Philippines on a televised talent contest, “Little Big Star,” in 2005, placing third. Two years later she gained an international following when a fan posted a series of performance videos on YouTube.

She has appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show and performed several times on Oprah Winfrey’s show. She also sang on PBS specials featuring multiple Grammy-winning producer David Foster, performing alongside such stars as Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban.

Charice made several recordings in the Philippines before her first internationally released studio album, “Charice,” was completed in 2010.

The U.S. version entered the Billboard pop albums chart at No. 8 — the first time an Asian solo singer had a Top 10 album on the Billboard chart.

Charice joined the cast of “Glee” as a member of a rival glee club that same year while continuing to perform as a recording artist, television personality and concert act.

Tickets for her 7 p.m. Saturday show on Nov. 3 are $30, $50, $75 and $150. Purchase by phone at 800-745-3000, or go online to
