Charice -- 'Louder' Video Debut!

Charice feels the rhythm in the brand-new video for “Louder.”

The 19-year-old Filipina singer debuted the video in Japan, where her new album, Infinity, is out!

Charice told Teen.com earlier this year about the tune, “I can totally dedicate that to all the haters out there. You know, like, I don’t need you. I don’t need no shoulder, you know? I’m gonna be a soldier. No one can bring me down. I’m just gonna do this and be brave. That’s why it’s called ‘Louder’ because you being brave is so much louder than you being weak. It’s such an amazing song, such an inspirational song.”
